  • Releng update (Rob Stryker, Nick Boldt)
  1. common builds as-is
    1. Rob provided a patch to remove dep from common on server. Will need testing
      1. Update 2017-09-28 - patch not yet merged, so common repo can't build independently yet. See
  2. servertools has 3 repos. Rob has a script to merge all 3 - see link on
    1. But because of deps from servertools tests on jeetools, we need to re-think this. integration profile, etc.
    2. servertools tests (which are really integration) tests can run successfully when resolving against the whole product. servertools itself builds fine in a clean env.
      1. Update 2017-09-28: proposed merge script now over 2 months old. Next step is to request webmaster to run it?
  3. jeetools is next in line, and i only fiddled a bit with the tests. most of which are fixed by changing eclipse-plugin to eclipse-test-plugin.
    1. jeetools needs a patch to respond to those changes in common to break dep on server. See
      1. Update 2017-09-28: proposed merge script linked on BZ. Needs PMC approval, then next step is to request webmaster to run it? See
    2. Rob didn't work too much on jeetools, but Rob senses a repo-merge will probably be necessary with ejb and other stuff. This hasn't been investigated much yet.
  4. Nick has updated the wiki pages which list repos, so they're as accurate as possible. This provides all three ways to explore the repos:
    1. (authenticated clone for use with Gerrit)
    2. (anon read-only clone)
    3. (online browsing)
