Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "September2007" by MarkBrouwer
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2007 19:35:53 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by MarkBrouwer:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/September2007

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  River is aimed at the development and advancement of the Jini technology core infrastructure.
Jini technology is a service oriented architecture that defines a programming model which
both exploits and extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure, distributed
systems which are adaptive to change.
  
+ The last artifact, the QA framework, has been voted in and landed in SVN. An automated build
environment has been put in place and finally all outstanding issues from the Sun issue tracking
system have been manually migrated in a large group effort to JIRA.
+ 
+ The River community agreed to do a first release to show the larger Jini community it is
serious in its efforts. It ain't a very ambitious release and will be almost an equivalent
of the last release done by Sun
+ but includes the ServiceUI code. This release also allows the River community to get acquainted
and find out about many of the ASF procedures. No transformation of the {{{com.sun.jini namespace}}}
to {{{org.apache.river}}} will take place, but the River community is aware it has to do that
and will find an opportune moment for that during incubation.
+ 
+ Perhaps as a side effect of the ambitions for the first release discussions on new functionality
don't seem to take off very well, but that time is used to discuss the process the River project
believes it needs to
+ establish. Although most committers have expressed their desire to have code-review before
code is committed, due to complexity of the codebase and the difficulty to test many aspects
properly, it seemed hard to decide to what extent to enforce that. A proposal for the initial
process guidelines is up for a vote now that combines CTR for public API and CTR for implementation
details.
+ 
+ US export regulations apply to the River codebase and although discussed in the very early
days we were living under the (wrong) impression that complying with them only applied when
we were about to release. We are aware now that we should have taken care of it even before
the code landed in SVN and we are going to comply as soon as possible.
