Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] NOTICE: - DONE refactoring of "aggregator" coming Thursday

I have completed the steps I needed to do, so the rest is up to you. You can install the new aggregator from

(and remember, you need to uninstall the old one first, if you are going to install the new one into the same IDE).

If you do not re-clone the repo you should just be able to "pull" and get all the name and file changes. And you will need to do that before you can update your contribution.


P.S. I will re-enable the Neon.VALIDATE job on Friday, after the EPP packages have been verified (approximately noon). The Neon.VALIDATE.gerrit job remains open for business, though.

I have been working on refactoring the old "b3 aggregator" to the "cbi aggregator" (bug 506726). That is, refactoring package names, etc.

This will require two things of those participating in the Sim. Release.

1. You will need to get a fresh copy of the aggregator installed into your IDE. (You will either need to "start fresh" or uninstall the old one before installing the new one). The new one is based on "Neon.1a" -- that is, Eclipse SDK (or Platform) 4.6.1.

2. You will need to check out a fresh copy of "" because the filename extensions are changing (plus a small tweak to the files themselves) due to the refactoring.

My plan is to make the new version available soon, but you should not use it for Sim. Release until the changes have been made to "". I plan to make those tomorrow, Thursday, between Noon and 1 PM (Eastern) unless there are objections to that timing.

To be explicit, I will make the required changes in both master and Neon_maintenance.

After all that, it will probably take me another hour or so to change the SimRel Hudson jobs so they are using the correct version of the aggregator.

I know the timing is not great, but there will not be a good time between now and the end of the year.

Apologies in advance for the churn, but I do think it is an important change that will be good in the long run.
