Subject [EXPERIMENT] Moving Incubator Website from CMS to gitpubsub
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2016 14:37:44 GMT
All,

I started a little experiment to move the incubator website from CMS to
git.  There's a few reasons I've looked at it.  First, I've seen a lot of
cases where people commit changes to the various control files
(podlings.xml, {podling}.xml) without running the necessary CMS steps to
publish the website.  I've personally not seen any benefit to leveraging
the CMS UI and the staging area.  I would personally prefer to leverage git
for source control over svn, its what people are using more actively these
days.

We did some preliminary research.  Since the CMS is calling build scrips
via buildbot, its very easy to point a new buildbot config that can run the
website via git.

So I'm wondering, from the broader iPMC and the users of our website, is
there any interest in moving, or is there a preference to stay on CMS and
SVN?

John
