Upcoming Work

  • Top priority this week is getting started with the "big rocks" in bugzilla, for RSE 2.0 Planning
    • add unit tests for all new or modified API
  • RSE 2.0 Planning
    • 1. Make APIs usable for clients, harden the APIs, improve documentation
      • SystemType improvements; retargetable actions/commands; read-only flags; Streams for IHostShell, IFileService;
    • 2. Make EFS work
    • 3. Play well with the Platform
    • 4. Improve overall quality (unit tests; special characters; long filenames; background jobs; parallel access; ...)
  • Think about limiting the API: Make APIs internal along the way of updating documentation, and making Unit tests, we'll see some API we want "internal".
  • For bugs, see the bug process page (assigned to inbox, status new, hi-priority, API, open with patch)
  • Compiler Warnings
    • See the Committer Howto for settings
