Subject [jira] Commented: (SCM-182) git provider
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2008 08:57:27 GMT


Mark Struberg commented on SCM-182:

Eugene, are you and Jason cleaning the snapshot repo at sonatype on a regular basis, or will
the snapshot remain there 'forever'?
(I ask this, because in our company I do clean our snapshot repo every month to ensure that
nobody is using snapshot versions in production).

There are many roads leading to Rome, and I have to admit that the most important part in
this discussion (at least for me as author)  is to hear that the plugin is useful for the
community and it now works out of the box for many people. So, I'm not screwed but rather
happy to hear that Don succeed using it. Plus: the more attraction it gets, the more people
will try using git with maven since there is no showstopper in this scenario anymore!

I will ask for the status and plans for scm-1.1 in the scm dev list.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven SCM
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: maven-scm-provider-git
>         Environment: Developed on Mac OS X 10.3.9 with git 1.2.4
>            Reporter: Dominik Winter
>            Assignee: Jason van Zyl
>             Fix For: 1.1
>         Attachments: git.patch, git.tar.bz2, SCM-182.patch, update1.patch.bz2
> Please find the git provider as attachment.
> Usefulness:
> I used the git provider together with [|maven-release-plugin],
it works fine for that use case.
> Open issues:
> - the JUnit tests are "proprietary", not yet TCK. I'll fix that.
> If you want to run the tests, you must have git installed and it must be in your {{PATH}}.
> To run git:
> - on *Windows*: use [Cygwin|] and install the binutils, openssh,
openssl, rsync, curl
> than you are able to compile and install git
> - on Linux: there are packages somewhere
> - on Mac OS X: use the [DarwinPorts|]
