Subject AW: Test Failures when building flex-falcon
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2015 09:22:34 GMT
Common' ... JS ... seriously? What exactly would you be expecting from a CI build for a JS
project? Of course they aren't mainly thinking of CI builds ... I'm talking about normal Software
development. Every customer I work for uses CI servers to ensure the quality of their software.

I actually want to use it to make sure everything builds correctly, automatically produce
up to date maven snapshots of the parts that belong to us and in general untangle the inter
dependencies in our build. I am used to working with complex builds and if I am having trouble
working out our current one, I bet most people wanting to contribute will be having at least
the same trouble. Most of them probably giving up. 

I want to change that. I want to lower the barrier for new contributions and the main thing
we need to address here is the build. Currently it feels as if only 2-3 people are contributing
to FlexJS as all ... I bet this could be a lot more, if we reached out to the others.

I know that you guys, sort of working on this full time, don't see the problem, but at Apache
it's "community over code", so we have to get the community involved again.

*At a certain level*.
There are *a lot* of people building small to medium apps that don't
want to take on the overhead and don't need the reassurance; more so in
agencies where after a month (or days!) the project is done and unchanging.

It's under half at our local monthly JS meeting who do CI (and we have a
broad mix from the one excellent man, through the 10-30 people SME's and
on to AutoTrader).

If you are producing a framework though, like we are, then CI is a must
because people are trusting us to not break.
