Subject [jira] [Created] (ZEST-25) Project -> Source SDK -> Binary SDK
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2015 00:57:00 GMT
Niclas Hedhman created ZEST-25:

             Summary: Project -> Source SDK -> Binary SDK
                 Key: ZEST-25
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-25
             Project: Zest
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Niclas Hedhman

Apache Software Foundation releases Source Tarballs only.

Our build system builds a source tarball, but it had a slightly different purpose, more like
a "reference" than the actual release.
Any binaries that we ship, are not really ASF releases, but convenience packages, and secondary
in nature to the source release.

THEREFOR, it is important that 
   a. The current src/ directory where the source is built into in the tarball is removed
and moved up to its root level.
   b. Only what we consider "releasable" will be released in that source form
   c. That building from that distributed source files, accurately builds the binaries
   d. Instructions for downstream packagers on how to build (everyone doesn't know Gradle)

Once the binaries are built, both with Java 7 and Java, we need to verify that the SDK functions
as expected.
