Subject Call for trunk pipeline testers
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 14:09:51 GMT
Hi folks,

ManifoldCF finally has a pipeline!  All tests pass.  Now I'm looking for
people to try things out by hand to see if there are any rough edges,
before we get too far along in the 1.7 development cycle to fix them.

Trunk has all the necessary moving parts and documentation as well.  There
are two transformation connectors available -- one that does nothing but
pass data through, and one that forces metadata (just like the framework
"Forced metadata" tab).  But since you can have more than one of each kind
of connector in a pipeline, this should be enough to exercise things fairly

We still need to address a couple of things in the medium and long term.
First, we need a Tika transformation connector, that extracts metadata from
binary files.  There's an existing ticket for that: CONNECTORS-954.  If
anyone wants to take a crack at that, please let me know.  (Takumi Yoshida
would be the obvious choice.)  Second, we need to come up with a strategy
of removing obsolete tabs/features, like the aforementioned general job
Forced Metadata tab.  We've got a fair number of such features around now.
These kinds of things cannot be removed without either a comprehensive
automatic upgrade, or loss of backwards compatibility.  I am thinking maybe
we break with backwards compatibility and work towards cleaning out
duplicate features for ManifoldCF 2.0.
