EPICS V4 Telecon, 9-Jun-2015
Review and notes for Mercurial to GitHub migration
Present: AJ, MK, GW, DH, NM, MD, BD, RL
GW: General comments or question. Then address other repos such as pvaAsyn.
AJ: Conversion pretty good. Everything worked OK. Some changes have been made in some repos but not others. hgignore will need to be converted to gitignore. hgflow too.
MD: I can post template for gitignore.
DH: Do the gitignore files ignore things for platform specific releases?
DH: Which modules are in a good state and which not in terms of hgflow?
… but let MD look at them and see if there is something better
AJ: Remaining repos that haven’t been converted.
Suggest host them on your own account initially. Create a new project under your account. Others fork. Correct Michael.
MD: Close enough.
AJ: Could these repos be hosted on Marty’s site.
MK: I could. Should these be on central.
AJ: Central maybe just for release modules. I’d like to remove pvIOCCPP.
AI on AJ: Develop and post list of modules to be moved out of the epics-base project.
GW: If you fork a repo and the original is deleted what’s affect on your fork?
MD: I can do the conversion of the two modules to your area if you give me permissions.
AJ: Any Java problems.
RL: NO. Fewer problems as using Maven
RL: Did you talk about issue tracker. No replacement for action item and resolution tracker. Bugs and issues could be converted to github tracker. Not a single tracker. Per module basis. Do we want the complete history of our tracker or port open issues using auto converter.
GW: What’s advantage of porting at all.
RL: The GitHub trackers much better. 30% of reason to move. SF trackers useless.
RL: A day to do everything. Easier to do open issues only.
GW: Resolutions and AI go to SF. Bugs and issues go to GitHub using manual entry.
RESOLUTION: Manual conversion of open bugs and issues. AIs and RESOLUTIONS will stay on SF.
Who’s going to the conversion:
AI: Greg to close irrelevant bug.
AI: Ralph to do the move.
RL: I’ve made repos unreadable for those without admin status.
Discussion on updating website to point to GitHub.
GW: Can MD do this
GW: Could remove ref to SF at top of index page.
MD: Take off-line. MD gives GW list of links and GW updates page.
BD: We have outstanding items Gateway, DB group etc.
GW: Discuss next week.
Meeting ends 16:37 BST.
