Re: [rt-pmc] Re: jetty7 distribution

I think "works with" can only be applied if the "optional" stuff you work with is not actually shipped in the download artifacts you make available from eclipse. So you would still have to find a place to host these other bits until the IP process can be done to pull these bits into Eclipse.

I get the impression that is not the outcome you desire for the jetty 7 release. I think you actually need the bits contained in one easy download for your jetty users.

[rt-pmc] Re: jetty7 distribution

Ok, I just had a talk with Barb Cochrane about this situation and
there might be another way of talking about this...so I'll back up a
bit and describe things another way and see if anything changes.


as Barb commented on this CQ there is the works with dependency that
some of these things might fall under, specifically the items we are
talking about here that are kind of holding up the release.


Eclipse seems to have a term for dependencies called works with which
means that it is basically an optional dependency that the project may
or may not need.

Normal jetty startup:

> java -jar start.jar

To start jetty with jsp:

> java -jar start.jar OPTIONS=default,jsp

This would load up the jsp jars into the runtime and then jsp would be
supported.  Does this qualify as a works with dependency that we would
be able to fulfill the eclipse release requirements with?  If so I am
being told that we can avoid all of this nasty approval through normal
IP channels stuff and still adhere to the letter of the law as it

Does this 'works with' term apply here?

also for the cometd war file, that is a sample war file that we bring
into the distribution for demo purposes with our test applications we
bundle in the distribution...remove it and jetty still runs
fine...would that also be a 'works with' dependency?
