Subject Scheduling sub-project releases
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2007 02:28:57 GMT
The message from Lucas Galfaso was actually well timed.

At ApacheCon I was talking with Felix Meschberger about our need to 
actually start making official releases of our sub-projects. Actually, 
my thinking was motivated by the recent users@ message from Matthias 
Luebken, where he was asking about how to get access to our service 
implementations. Both of these recent messages illustrate that we need 
to improve on the current situation.

In general, we have sub-projects that are in good shape and some that 
are experimental. My view is that we should attempt to make official 
release of all sub-projects as long as they do something useful (i.e., 
as long as it is not too unstable). My thinking is that they only way we 
will start getting feedback for JIRA issues and possible contributors 
for our sub-projects is by making them reasonably easy to access.

So, I think we need to make a list of which sub-projects we should 
target for release (sub-project contributors should speak up about their 
sub-projects) and start releasing them, giving them an appropriate 
version number to indicate their level of completeness/stability.

It would also be good for us to figure out how we can create an OBR 
repository for our released bundles.

This will likely involve a bit of effort, but if we actually want people 
to use our stuff, we have to make it easy for them to do so. Let's try 
to jump start this activity.
