Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-627) Confiuration of Forrest
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2005 08:42:54 GMT
Confiuration of Forrest
-----------------------

         Key: FOR-627
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-627
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Core operations  
    Versions: 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: Gavin


Forrest's config files, as they stand have reached the end of their
useful life. We are now limited in what we can do and views are making
many of them redundant anyway. It is therefore proposed that we take
this opportunity to simplify the config system.

We had a design discussion about this and you can find Nicola's notes in
SVN (see the hackathon directory in the etc directory of trunk). 
Together with the audio of our dicsussions (thanks David) Someone
needs to summarise this discussion (Anil has stepped up to the plate on 
this one).

NOTE: For any users thinking ("oh no, the next forrest will be hard to 
upgrade because of fundamental changes in the way it is configured", 
don't  worry. We will (most likely) provide tools to facilitate this 
upgrade, we will need them ourselves anyway).


This issue is the result of an ApacheCon discussion, more, including links to the original
ApacheCon Summaries at :-
