Hi,

We (CDO) have just migrated from SVN to Git and are now wondering how best to specify the workflow for initially setting
up fresh develper workspaces. We see two different approaches:

1. Use the Buckminster import wizard and enter the http:// URL to the MSpec document (in our case
http://git.eclipse.org/c/cdo/org.eclipse.emf.cdo.git/plain/plugins/org.eclipse.emf.cdo.releng/local.mspec )

2. Manually clone the remote repo to "some local folder", import the releng component into the Eclipse workspace and
then run the Buckminster import command.

The second approach has the following disadvantages:
- More manual steps
- Redundant definition of the clone location (manually with EGit and in the RMap) with the potential to end up with
different clones and a local releng component that does not come from the clone created by Buckminster.

The first approach has the disadvantage that it does not work at all. The cloning step freezes almost immediately,
progress is not properly reported and it's not cancelable. Is this a known problem?

Both approaches have a local clone folder configured into the RMap and we wonder how developers can best override that
location. For example I usually place all my development files under /develp, a folder that my virus scanner is
ignoring. Other developers may have other preferences. What might be a good way to control this location? Would a -D
switch in the eclipse.ini do the trick?

Cheers
/Eike

Forget that! It wouldn't be workspace specific.

We use this approach for cloudsmith/geppetto at github. Works just fine.
Have not tried it with git repos hosted at Eclipse though...

I've tried it again. Same result, the following modal dialog does
not progress in any way:<br>
<br>
<img src="http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=getfile&amp;id=4305" alt=""><br>
<br>
The folder where the clone is supposed to appear gets created and
filled with 3 files and 11 subfolders but the total size stays at
248 bytes.<br>
<br>
No progress is reported, no timeout error, no any error.<br>
<br>
I can cancel the jobs in the progress dialog and ancel the import
wizard, but it seems some job is not really dead thereafter:<br>
<br>
<img src="http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=getfile&amp;id=4306" alt=""><br>
<br>
Only a restart of the IDE helps then.<br>
<br>
Cheers<br>

The difference is that we point directly to the cquery so no mspec is ever used in the geppetto build. The build is set
up to use the Bucky defaults so there's no need for one.

Eike, can you please enter a bugzilla for this?

Thanks,

In case you want to look at our MSpec:
http://git.eclipse.org/c/cdo/org.eclipse.emf.cdo.git/plain/plugins/org.eclipse.emf.cdo.releng/local.mspec
