Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (FOR-1005) Use sourcetypeaction for input plugins
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 10:21:42 GMT
Daive, I agree that this is a good entry level issue. I wonder if we 
should have a page on the site that highlights these entry level issues 
with a big notice saying our devs are happy to help people understand 
the steps needed. I'd come out of the woodwork to help onlist, but I'm 
rarely engaged with Forrest as a code base anymore so I'm unlikely to 
create the page/address the issue directly.

If we add a tag to the description, or something like that, then we 
could create a standard search and automatically generate the page.

> The attached file FOR-1005-sourcetype-plugins.txt is a list of all current plugins. In
column #1 is a symbol to indicate its status. So far i have just used 'find and grep' to see
if their sitemaps use "sourcetype". There are 49 plugins, of which 11 use sourcetype.
