Subject [jira] Commented: (DROIDS-96) [Droids crawler] Maven : add the droids-crawler module in the parent pom
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2010 06:21:18 GMT


Mingfai Ma commented on DROIDS-96:

I think I'm the person who created the crawler module in around a year ago. 

there are several issues with the module that it should *not* be added to the parent module
(and should be removed from this project)
1. the initial code and concepts are originated from Droids' crawler code, but i made too
many changes at that time that I couldn't make the module to use the parent/droids-core module
(unless I also make significant change to droids-core ...). so, the module is actually a standalone
one, works independent of droids.

2. i believe i'm the only one who has committed code for that module, and the last update
is around a year ago. I actually keep developing the crawler but not based on that droids-crawler
trunk. In other words, the droids-crawler module in svn is unmaintained now. 

for the two reasons above, i think the module in svn should be obsoleted / deleted.

I don't mind to release the latest crawler code i use if anyone may use it, but it still has
the old problem that it doesn't use droids-core. I think if it doesn't use droids-core, it
can't be called a droids-crawler.
