Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [WARNING] SimRel Headed Off the Tracks

Hi all,

+1 for going back to annual releases.

Projects are not forced to do quarterly releases. You can have your project do a yearly release, but it just means that since Platform releases every 3 months, you need to check your project against 2 milestones and 2 RCs of the Platform every 3 months (12 times a year). Which doesn't change much compared to previous state where projects were supposed to be tested against all Platform milestones and RC, ie 11 times a year.\

The work done by Ed M is very appreciated. Ideally, the different checks (e.g. licenses) could be automated to prevent degradation of SimRel quality.

Some checks have already been possible to automate for a while:
The licence check may be missing, and could be added.
Or one can probably just build a similar Maven configuration to run the other analyzers.
But the real thing is that what matters is not building the report, but enforcing rules without human intervention. This typically happens only with mechanism that fail the build in case the analyzers see issue. As long as human reading is required, it cost too much effort and time to someone, and feedback loop becomes too long. The only good way to report a bad state is to fail the build so it doesn't pass review.
