We have also added a basic test suite which verifies the layout of bundles.

Based on the results of the Orbit test suite, there are a bunch of failures because the bundles don't contain a manifest file. Further investigation shows that a manifest is there, but is of the wrong casing. (e.g. Mainfest.mf) When we look at CVS, the manifest looks ok so we need to determine where in the build process the problem occurs.

+
* do we really need branches?
+
* create new map files? had because its based on what people consume

* how about new features? set1 is for europa, something new for maintenance, etc.
+
* thought from Pascal: have the build produce multiple map files, one for each consumer based on the info in the ip log file

Discussion

Manifest Files

Based on the results of the Orbit test suite, there are a bunch of failures because the bundles don't contain a manifest file. Further investigation shows that a manifest is there, but is of the wrong casing. (e.g. Mainfest.mf) When we look at CVS, the manifest looks ok so we need to determine where in the build process the problem occurs.

  • Action: DJ to investigate

Bundle downloads

Do we want to try and make the GET URLs generated by Orbit be build-independent? That is, not have the build id in it so consumers don't always have to update their map files if there is a new Orbit build and their bundle didn't change? Some of the issues are described here: Orbit Bundle Layout.

  • Action: Everyone please review the above doc and edit/add comments

Builds

Are we ready to start releasing new bundles to Orbit now that Europa is out the door?

  • Open season, let's start adding bundles.

Conf Calls

The Asterisk Conference Calls System has been set up by the Foundation for conference calls. Everyone please ensure you have the client software installed and we will use this system for the next Orbit call.

  • Action: Everyone please install the client software. We will use this for the next call

Next Meeting

  • TBD
