Subject Fwd: Migrate to svnpubsub and buildbot - what's possible?
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 12:52:14 GMT

Forwarding these questions to the builds@ mailing list - perhaps
someone here can help us out with the build related questions about
what is possible with buildbot with regards to getting our
documentation/website builds automated?

Subject: Migrate to svnpubsub and buildbot - what's possible?
To: infrastructure <infrastructure@apache.org>


At the Apache ServiceMix project, we're preparing to migrate our
website and documentation to svnpubsub.  Both the contents for the
website and documentation are being generated using Maven and we can
change our builds to allow our committers to deploy the site to an SVN

However, during the discussion, Dan Kulp also pointed out another
solution that would avoid the deploy step, by using buildbot to
rebuild the contents automatically for us on checkin.  Before we setup
our builds to generate contents in an external directory for use in
buildbot, we have a few more questions.

We are using two external tools for building our documentation pages:
Pygments to generate CSS markup for code highlighting and Prince XML
to generate PDF documents.  Is either one of these already supported
on the buildbot machines or should we look into using pure
Maven/Java-based alternatives for them?

Also, the documentation project contains two branches (for
version-based documentation) and the website main contents is coming
from another project.  Can buildbot be set up to run those build
separately and publish into another subdirectory of the website or
would it be better to try and create a unified build for everything?
