Koneki Deliverables? [message #1416478] Tue, 12 June 2012 13:21 Go to next message

Hi all,

We are trying to integrate the Koneki LUA Feature into an eclipse product. Our eclipse product is a mix of existing open source features and in-house developped eclipse features. In order to be compliant with the EPL license, we need to be able to deliver the sources from everything we deliver (both in-house and externally integrated features).

Currently we are using the 'SDK' drop-in variants from external features to integrate them in our own site.xml based update-site (we did not implement a p2 variant yet). Hence the following questions/requests:

(a) Currently Koneki is available through a P2 update-site which runs in nightly build mode. Is there a plan to provide a site with stable release deliveries?

(b) Is is possible to also provide the Koneki feature in a dropin's compatible archive, preferrably also offering an SDK variant (src+bin)?

(c) Will the source also be offered as a seperate feature in the future?

(d) What is the plan on official/stable deliveries on the Koneki project?


Best regards,
Bart

Hey, that's awesome!

Sure, the final 0.8 version will be with Juno at the end of the month. Regular 0.8 milestones have been published on the eclipse.ialto.org/koneki/releases/0.8milestones update site (N-1 milestones are usually archived when a new milestone is out).
We've been releasing the milestones according to the http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=technology.koneki.

What are the requirements to do so? I guess you'd like to be able to download a zip corresponding to the org.eclipse.koneki.ldt feature, right? Please open a bug and I'd be glad to investigate this, it should be pretty straightforward. You might even contribute the patch yourself if you're familiar with Tycho! -- Tycho is awesome, btw.

Just to be sure, you want a source feature, that's it? Again, please open a bug! :)

We will work on the 0.9 plan right after the 0.8 release. We'd like to release 0.9 by the end of the year and graduate (1.0) with Kepler next year.

We will probably run a poll to gather feedback before scheduling the work items for 0.9, but one thing we have on our plate is to refactor some of the plug-ins to make it clearer what's API and what's not, and improve the overall architecture. You should expect API changes before 1.0 (this is why 0.xs are for right? :)), but maybe if you could share a bit more about the kind of integration you're willing to do, maybe we can take extra-care when refactoring things up. For example, do you plan on "just" shipping LDT , or will you extend wizards, preferences, templates, etc...

Cheers!
Benjamin.

For the record, the latest nightly update site now includes the source feature!

Cheers,
Benjamin.
