Re: [] Moving to Buckminster and Git


When a project transitions to Buckminster has little impact on other projects. The final repos should be the same.

However, I think there will be considerable confusion if projects transition to GIT at different times; there is already a little confusion between CVS and SVN but fortunately few projects use SVN.

If GIT is not ready today, three weeks after Helios, then I think it would be better for all non-incubation modelling projects to defer the GIT migration till the day after Indigo.

To avoid confusion the PMC should make a strong recommendation to either transition to GIT now or to transition after Indigo.

Ed, Kenn

I'm definitely against to move to a different SCM system if they don't provide an user friendly interface, as CVS and SVN related projects provide.

I'm not familiar with GIT (just some conceptual knowledge) but I suppose there is a good reason to do such transition, isn´t it ? Anyway if it's a requirement from the PMC, I'll look into it when the project provides a helpful UI after 0.9 release.

Glad that Buckminster is already part of your plans. I hope to transition UML2 by end of summer as well. XSD is, of course, already on Buckminster (since EMF is). That leaves BPMN2, MoDisco, Papyrus, Sphinx (soon to be created/provisioned), and UML2 Tools.

Regarding git, I agree that the current tooling is not quite ready for prime time. However, the 0.9 release, scheduled for end of September, is expected to have everything people need so that they will not have to resort to the command line interface. In the meantime, it would be a good idea to become familiar with git and at least start thinking about the impact that it will have on your project's development and build processes.

Hi Kenn


We're happy to move to Buckminster; Adolfo is already working on it, so hopefully we'll be there for M1.

I don't see GIT as part of Helios Modeling Package install, and have just seen a GSoC email go past on improving EGit integration, so I suspect that EGIT is not ready for prime time. I have also observed significant concerns over GIT's bandwidth consumption on the servers. Both EGIT and JGIT are in the incubation phase, and while they no doubt offer useful benefits they are not essential. I would prefer to leave a transition to EGIT till after Indigo.

Congratulations again on a successful Helios release! Now that the dust has settled a little bit, it's time to start thinking about next year's release (Indigo).

At this point, I'd like to remind you that the Modeling PMC has decided that all Modeling projects should use Buckminster for their builds and that the Eclipse Foundation has chosen git as the preferred SCM system going forward. Project leads, please factor these initiatives into your plans; it would be ideal if each of you could let the team know whether/when you plan to make these transitions. Of course, it would be ideal to get this kind of work done sooner rather than later, before development begins in earnest again in September.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate share them.
