Subject Re: T-4 days to ApacheCon...1.0 Status and Thoughts
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2005 02:23:48 GMT
I am heading to the airport soon.  Won't be online until Wed evening in 
San Diego.

I wish we had more time to do some testing, there have been a lot of 
changes lately..

The following needs to be done by someone else:

* GERONIMO-1286 (CRLF/LF in distributions) changes needs to be ported to 
the new build from modules/assembly/maven.xml.
* GERONIMO-1151 "Changing EJB port from 4201 to another value in 
config.xml does not take effect" needs to be fixed... also need to test 
other attributes.

The following I plan on doing (after the freeze if possible) for the 1.0 

* GERONIMO-1166 Startup scripts - I had hoped to get these committed 
before travelling, but spent time chasing build problems.   I plan on 
doing some more testing with these scripts and commit them on Thursday 
8th Dec.  The scripts are based on what was agreed in the mail 
thread.  I have attached my current work as a patch to the JIRA.

* GERONIMO-1266 Geronimo Izpack installer does not set shell scripts as 
executable - depends upon GERONIMO-1166 being finished, since there will 
be different file names that need to be set executable.  Not sure if 
1266 is really a show stopper, but would be nice if users didn't need to 
chmod scripts after installing..
