RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Best practices on versioning

I agree, the sooner we are able to get together (following Callisto) and
discuss the details, the better.  There are lots of ideas and
implementations floating around (RSS, update manager utilization,
cruisecontrol, maven, etc.) that would be good to discuss (preferably in
person, imo). 

Perhaps this should be added to the agenda of discussion items for the
next Architecture and/or Planning Council meetings?

Well, you'd probably have to have a "script-off" to see who has the best
build scripts. Of course we are all happy with the Platforms rock solid
build process. But I think Rich's GMF builds are pretty cool too.

Then the unified releng team would have to adapt those scripts to make
sure they can build all the projects' bits. Obviously, a criteria for
the script- off would be extensibility.

Then we need to make sure we have enough machine power to do it all.

Then there's the process issues dealing with building such a big blob of
software and making sure the builds remain rock solid. Build breakage
will have a much larger impact that it does today for a lot of the

That's just off the top of my head. But if we are aiming for next year
(we need a name soon for the thing after Callisto), then I think we have
a lot of time to work out the issues. Getting it done early, though,
gives us the time to manage the culture change that would have to happen
to make it successful.

What would have to happen, and how soon would we have to start, for the
product of this work to be routine, standard operating practice, by next
year's train?_______________________________________________
