Subject [JENKINS] - Removal of top level views
Date Sun, 30 Apr 2017 08:19:59 GMT
Hi All,

We are starting to get complaints about the amount of top level views in our Jenkins instance.

I believe it is time for cleanup of those views once more.

A few years ago, I cleaned up a heap of views and got quite some complaints from projects

about doing so, without consultation, and the fact that this breaks links some projects use.

Since that time however, projects have continued to create new Top Level views and now 
we are at a stage where again there are too many - there are currently 22 project type views.

There are many more projects and I’d hate for this trend to continue upwards and clutter
main Jenkins landing page even more.

I have created an INFRA ticket to track this at :

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-14002 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-14002>

The views I propose to remove are :

Airavata, Apache Commons, Apex, Beam Brooklyn, Calciate, CarbonData, DL, Groovy, Hawq, Infra
Jobs Monitor View, Lucene, OWB, Olingo, OpenJPA, POI, Shiro, Tamaya, Tika, XMLGraphics. cloudstack,

Also: All the single letter viewss from A to Z. They are not much used and it is preferred
to use 'A-D', 'E-G', 'H-L', 'M-R' and 'S-Z'

Two Views unsure what to do with are: 'Incubator Projects' and 'PreCommit Builds'

Some views have already been removed, I removed one called ‘jobs I have access to’ or
something like that, the Maven project also removed their top level views so my thanks to
The Infra jobs monitor view is one I created, my fault and Im going to move it under H-L where
it belongs.

ACTION NEEDED:- Please, could all project who are listed above as having a top level view,
please move it to a view under the appropriate letters group, or remove it.

The two Im not sure about ‘Incubator Projects’ and ‘PreCommit Builds’ , ‘Incubator
Projects’ may be a benefit at top level if used correctly.
‘PreCommit Builds’ is not one owned by any one project, Im unsure whether this could stay
top level and be a benefit.

I’ll be moving the Infra views shortly.

If, after a week, there are still projects at the top level view, I’ll move onto the next
step of mailing the projects dev lists directly, though that should not be required if they
have the representation on this list.

Thanks in advance.

I’ll keep the INFRA-14002 ticket updated with progress.
