Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Capture Kepler participation information

Hi Wayne

Once you find your way round, the new PMI provides a better way for what it does, but I'm very confused.

For instance, once Luna is out, how will it be possible to access the project description for Kepler? Is there a hidden GIT?
No. The project description is the project description. The PMI does capture revisions (using Drupal's support for this), but I have no intention of leveraging this for the simultaneous releases page.

The description I mentioned is the description of the release. This is part of the release record.

You can also include your plan information directly on the release record and start assembling your review information there as well. There is no specific requirement to do this. You can continue to do what you've been doing all along if you'd prefer.
Currently my project plan is in GIT mdt\ocl\project-info\plan_kepler.xml which I can understand.

The PMI has some new location that I do not understand.

Are you doing some magical timestamp comparison to detect which of the old/new way is in use?

What happens if I edit in the PMI, then my colleague edits the XML?
Then you will have two separate copies.The PMI stores the plan information in a database. Drupal provides some revision control that can be leveraged here.

When I did the import of the existing information, I pulled in project plans where I could find them. It was a one-way process.

You must choose to either continue to run with an XML file, or you can use the form elements in the PMI. There is no plan to attempt to coordinate these.

Are you automatically updating the XML and performing GIT commits on my behalf?
