Re: [] Confusing Update Sites

Hi Ed

After Alex's comment that separate update sites is the preferred policy, an aggregate site is what we should be looking at.

Presumably we need to manually migrate the existing UML2, UML2-Tools, old OCL contributions to their new individual sites, and replace the mdt update site by an aggregate.

Is this right?

Is this what UML2 and UML2-Tools want to do?

Any clues on how to create an aggregate?

For Helios we created an aggregate site that delegated onto the more specific sites.  These are in CVS modeling/updates. That seems like a better way to go.  I.e., keep specific sites and do virtual aggregation when combined sites are needed.

Hi Adolfo

Modisco certainly has its own site.
Papyrus does not list a site.
The communal mdt update site is just UML2, UML2-Tools and old OCL.

It seems that with MDT becoming many rather than just three projects a communal update site was not tenable.

However since UML2 has no separate update site and both UML2 and OCL are 'core' components, I think OCL should revert to the communal site, then users will find the communal site, find good content, and quite possibly never even find the other site, particularly if we stop advertising it.

Once you've figured out how the mdt/ocl update site is maintained by the new releng, perhaps you can revert to the mdt site and perhaps manually add all the missing 3.x entries and update the project meta-data.

While working on releng, I realised that just OCL has its own update site. The point is that no other MDT component has one, so I'm not sure if it's a problem of the MDT/OCL component, otherwise it's a problem of the other components. Do you have any information/newsgroup link about "The migration of components to use their own update site" ?

P.S: Releng progress: I committed some releng stuff last friday, but unfortunately it's not still working ;P. I'll retake the task during today, let's see if we get a functional bucky build at the end of the day.

MDT/OCL may be found on

Is there anything we can do to make the old release on mdt/updates more obviously inappropriate?
