Subject Re: 1.1.1 - Ready or not ? Soliciting input
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2006 16:08:20 GMT
Here are the issues that bother me most in 1.1.1.  I believe they are
all also issues in 1.1.

 - Redeploy broken when module ID does not include a type (patch available)
 - Redeploy broken when module ID does not include a version and app
uses JNDI (patch available)

I also just found a deploy problem with web apps with a plan with no
environment, but I haven't investigated much yet.

 - For a security realm with multiple login modules, we do not handle
the JAAS Control Flags correctly (e.g. we do not call the login
modules using the correct logic).  Code to reproduce available. Alan
had claimed a predecessor to this issue; I'm not sure if he's planning
on working on this one.
 - For a web app, if the security url-patterns don't exactly match the
servlet-mapping url-patterns, we apply no security at all.  Code to
reproduce available.  Alan has claimed this issue.
 - Likely not still a problem (reported against M5), but if it is, it
sounds serious.

There are a large number of other issues out there in the "security"
category, but I don't think they're all as urgent (e.g. GEORNIMO-1747,
GERONIMO-2274, GERONIMO-2275, and GERONIMO-2279 probably ought to be
addressed in 1.1.2 but I don't think need to hold up 1.1.1).
