Subject Re: [proposal] Split Up JIRA Projects
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2006 13:59:43 GMT
I'm concerned with the impacts of this proposal.

I strongly suspect that we're going to start seeing issues filed
against MYFACES instead of the relevent subproject if you split them
out like this.

However, I don't know if there's a reasonable way to handle separate
releases in JIRA otherwise.  I know that Velocity split Velocity-tools
out into a separate jira issue, and I think it was for the same

I also wonder what the eventual impact of splitting out sub projects
for each project apache-wide are going to be, but that's probably
outside of the discussion.

Maybe Apache should request a JIRA enhancement to make this kind of
reorganization unnecessary.  Browsing through the JIRA system,
possibly it's already mitigated somewhat by the "category" property of
JIRA, and we only need to make sure that things are categorized
properly (I see that VELTOOLS and XERCESP seem to be uncategorized).  
However, it seems to be that it'd be better if JIRA supported separate
releases based on components.

Could we consider prefixing the names with MYFACES to at least keep
them all grouped together in JIRA?   MYFACES, MYFACESTOMAHAWK,

As for reporting bugs against commons, I think it'd be more
appropriate for them to go against TOMAHAWK by default.    Think of
the use cases.   If it's a commons bug that manifests itself against
the IMPL, then the user is already likely to post the bug against
MYFACES.   If it's a use case such that the user knows it's a commons
problem, the user is probably creating components using the shared
coded and using TOMAHAWK rather than IMPL as the build target.
