Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-2804) Formatable changes log as html
Date Sat, 09 Feb 2008 02:16:07 GMT
Formatable changes log as html
------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-2804
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2804
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: documentation
            Reporter: Nigel Daley
            Assignee: Nigel Daley
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.17.0


We could do a better job of generating useful release notes.  As a first step, I suggest we
follow Lucene's lead and add html formatting to our CHANGES.txt.  An example output is here:

http://hudson.zones.apache.org/hudson/view/Lucene/job/Lucene-trunk/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/trunk/build/docs/changes/Changes.html

This should then be included with our release documentation that is published on the website
for each release.

After this is committed, the next step is for committers to agree on a CHANGES.txt convention
that will flag major features/improvements (such as a well placed *).  Then the flagged Jira's
can be further highlighted when generating the html.

Thoughts?
