RichFaces Team Meeting Minutes 7-27-2010

4.0.0.Milestone1 Release

  • Users have problems with 3rd party dependencies
    • Not Maven users AFAIK
    • Ilya will write blog on required dependencies


4.0.0.Milestone 2

  • Integration with MyFaces 2.0.1 is planned for the near future
  • Development status
  • Questions/concerns
    • None
  • Build system redesign
    • Requirements for wokflows:
      • Point release of a subset
      • Custom packaging with limited components included
    • Discussed usage of Maven profiles & svn:externals
    • Two questions to think about:
      • How to enforce, manage cross project dependencies that will only show when we try to release, and/or split in future to 1-2 t/b/t
        • Maven reporting plugins should help
      • How to handle, where to put, items that need to be tagged but not part of release ( QE stuff mainly ))
    • 3.x should be archived in SVN
    • QA applications and demos should be tagged - even the ones not included into release
    • Development should occur in branches to keep trunk stable
