What we have done in the past was to ask Linux Foundation admins to
populate the repository, side-stepping gerrit. We have done this for
mdsal and netconf at least.

I am not sure if the same effect is doable with gerrit.

HI all, 


just thoughts 


we can still keep the history in frozen project, with the description on the first commit that the projects were merged together. And with the information where the old history can be found. 

If I am not wrong merging two repositories with git subtree creates a huge amount of merging commits ?

Hello,

rather than copying the code, can you please have LF import the
repository? That way we do not lose history -- which is very important.

OPENFLOWJAVA Nitrogen Status

an.ho@huawei.com
 

Hi Michal Rehak and OPENFLOWJAVA Team,

We would like to express our appreciation for your contribution to the Carbon Simultaneous Release and the wonderful innovations your team has brought to the OpenDaylight Project and its community.

We have not heard from your project regarding your intent to participate in the Nitrogen Simultaneous Release [1] which was due on June 21, 2017 [2]. Please take a moment to confirm if your project intends to drop from the Nitrogen Simultaneous Release. We will assume your project does not intend to participate in the Nitrogen Simultaneous Release if we do not hear back by the end of this week.

Please note that projects participating in the Nitrogen Simultaneous Release are required to complete the Nitrogen Simultaneous Release Plan Requirements [3] as well as the Nitrogen Karaf 4 Migration Requirements [5], including:

* local karaf 4 distribution: projects build local karaf 4 distribution
** create karaf 4 features and local karaf 4 distribution
** test, and identify blocking issues
** examples: https://git.opendaylight.org/gerrit/#/c/55160/ (support only karaf 4) or https://git.opendaylight.org/gerrit/#/c/58726/ (support karaf 3 and karaf 4)
** create bugzilla issue such as https://bugs.opendaylight.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8638 and make it block https://bugs.opendaylight.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4219
* odlparent version 2: projects migrate themselves to odlparent version 2.0.0
** This means removing your Karaf 3 features (because odlparent 2.0.0 will not support Karaf 3 anymore)
** projects should make some minor adjustments in the code related to the switch to a newer Guava version.
* add to integration distribution: projects to add their karaf 4 features to integration distribution as per https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/Karaf_4_migration#Step_7:_add_your_karaf_4_features_to_distribution

Best Regards,
An Ho

We kept history when we split ovsdb/netvirt and then merged netvirt
and vpnservice. The flow Andy used copied all the files into NetVirt
and the history was kept intact. I think I came up with the commands
to use and Andy did the work - but I can't find those emails right
now.

You should also stop the jobs running for the old openflowjava repo
and migrate them to use openflowplugin repo.

Yes, this is what we did - just pulled in the relvant docs to netvirt.

We will have to check out the best way forward without disruption to the OpenFlow Plugin consumers - be it in Nitrogen or some other time.

We would not delete the old repo, it would just become a read-only
archived repo.

My suggestion would be to do the following:

* Copy the HEAD of the code base being merged into the target project

* Make the commit message state where it is coming from and the SHA of
the commit it is being taken from (in case the HEAD moves after that for
some reason)

* Request that LF lock the origination repository

I would think that cleaning up the committer lists before this would be
a paramount issue. Then the committers can formally vote to bring the
old project into archive status so that we have a proper for the
read-only / archive state of the project.

After that upon the code being brought into the other project, elevating
anyone to committer that needs to be would just follow the standard
procedures, though you would be able to point at history in the archived
project as well for making the elevation case.

OpenFlow Plugin and OpenFlow Java Library

Abhijit Kumbhare
 

Hi folks,

We have 2 projects for OpenFlow - OpenFlow Plugin (connection handling, state management, apps like the FRM, etc.) & OpenFlow Java Library (library for the low level wire protocol implementation). This increases the logistics related to the OpenFlow southbound development (done in two places) and project reporting overhead. The other southbounds like OVSDB, NetConf, etc. do not have two different projects - even if some of them may have a similar split internally (plugin & library).
 
Also more importantly currently most community activity (meetings/discussions for the new features) happen in the OpenFlow Plugin community even though the implementation needs to be done in OF Plugin and OFJ Library. Also going forward OFJ may have only a single active committer (Jozef Bacigal). 

So some of us feel Nitrogen might be a good time to unify these two projects.

The current thought:
  Move all the code from OpenFlow Java Library to the OpenFlow Plugin.

Advantages:
1) This may not need a lot of work. 
2) All active OpenFlow Java committers are also committers on OpenFlow Plugin.
3) Since we are not creating a project & if we do not add any new committers - this may not even need a TSC approval (but we will work with the TSC when we have decided the exact action).

Challenges / open questions:
1) How do we retain history for the OpenFlow Java code for code done before the code movement? The IT experts may have some ideas on this - Thanh, Anil B, Andrew? Also is there a way to subsume a project into another project or merge the repos?
   One obvious solution, we can just keep the OpenFlow Java Library repo still active - even if OpenFlow Java Library does not participate in future simultaneous releases. 
2) How do handle the documentation of the 2 projects? Just move the OpenFlow Java documentation inside the developer guide under OFP documentation?
3) How do we handle the inactive committers of OpenFlow Java Library? If we keep OpenFlow Java Library project active without participating in simultaneous release - we likely do not have to address this problem.

If you have thoughts/suggestions/objections - please reply to this email.

Thanks,
Abhijit
