Re: [OpenDaylight Discuss] Integration distribution folders

Luis Gomez

Hi all,

Seeing there are no objections here I will start hosting "non-official" distributions under “extra" folder in integration/distributions.

Hi all,

After TSC call today, here is my proposal on how to handle unsupported
distributions in the integration repo.

This is what we have today for official distributions:


And I think all will be easier if we can just add an ³extra² folder in
distributions to host non-official/non-supported distros:


Comments on this proposal:

1) Placing new distros in /distributions folder allows us to use
existing verify-distributions and merge-distributions jobs to build the
distros upon change in the composition and run full test suite to verify
any change here does not impact anything.

2) The new editions will be built at the same time at the official
editions, this is when we see changes in project repos. After the build
we can trigger or not specific tests for the new editions.

3) Regarding the proposal of using folders to separate main releases
like Hydrogen, Helium, etcŠ I do not think this is really needed as we
have stable branches, meaning that Hydrogen distros will be under
/distributions in stable/hydrogen branch, Helium distros are now under
/distributions in master and will be under /distributions in
stable/helium after helium release, and so on. Also, one thing we can do
when we create stable branches is to remove the extra folder as I do not
think extra distros are needed for stable.

4) I really would like to see a folder in Nexus for ³extra" so we do
not get confused with official there as well.

5) Finally, we will be addressing to TSC any change in official
editions or any proposal to move a distro from extra to official.

Please feel free to comment on this proposal.
