Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7069) Replace forrest with supported framework
Date Mon, 20 Dec 2010 01:24:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7069?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12973064#action_12973064

Jakob Homan commented on HADOOP-7069:

Both Whirr and ZooKeeper have recently looked at this issue and come to different conclusions:
* Whirr (WHIRR-19) went with maven site generation, but this seems out of reach until the
build is mavenized, which isn't likely to happen soon.
* ZooKeeper (ZOOKEEPER-925) went through the pain of trying to convert its existing forrest
docs and eventually chose textile (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-925?focusedCommentId=12971846&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#action_12971846)

Perhaps we should take the benefit of Ben and Pat's toil and evaluate textile first, although
it seems to have its share of problems as well.

> It's time to burn down the forrest.  Apache forrest, which is used to generate the documentation
for all three subprojects, has not had a release in several years (0.8, the version we use
was released April 18, 2007), and requires JDK5, which was EOL'ed in November 2009.  Since
it doesn't seem likely Forrest will be developed any more, and JDK5 is not shipped with recent
OSX versions, or included by default in most linux distros, we should look to find a new documentation
system and convert the current docs to it.
