Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-890) Plugin deployment wastes disk space and bandwidth
Date Tue, 23 May 2006 22:57:31 GMT
Plugin deployment wastes disk space and bandwidth

         Key: FOR-890
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Improvement

  Components: Plugins (general issues)  
    Versions: 0.7, 0.8-dev    
    Reporter: Ross Gardler
    Priority: Minor

When we deploy a plugin or plugin docs (or even just the plugin descriptor) the first thing
that happens is that we update the plugins section of the site from SVN.

This checkout is at present, held in the build directory.

I have two issue with this:

1) if there is a separate checkout of the site on the local machine this is duplicated content

2) if a ./ clean is performed the checkout is lost and therefore must be done again
- wasting bandwidth and time

So, what to do...

For 1) we can allow a local property file to override the settings for the relevant ant properties
in plugins/build.xml:


For 2) we can change the checkout location to $FORREST_HOME/work/...
