Hi Dale, great you’re looking into this issue … I would have to work myself into the topic a little more in order to address that.
Regarding the samples issues: I would strongly suggest to request a separate GIT repo for the samples. While it is possible to keep them in there, there are a lot of issues that have to be dealt with this way. First of all you have to exclude stuff from rat (as you have seen), then you have to exclude stuff from the releases (as you have seen too), but probably the most annoying thing is dealing with releasing in GIT. Having mixed repos, we would have several tags in one repo reflecting releases of Edgent and the samples. While I would treat this fact as “annoying” at most, the main problem will be merging the parts that are part of the release back to the master branch. If the repos are separate, all you have to do is merge the tagged release revision back to master and all is good. In case of a mixed repo, you will have to do a lot of manual merging and cherry picking. So I would opt for splitting up the repos and creating nicely separated build configs for both. Repos are cheap at the ASF :-) Chris Am 08.08.17, 15:59 schrieb "Dale LaBossiere" <dml.apa...@gmail.com>: That explains the failure in the SVT test in travis. Ugh. :-( I’ll look into it. By the end of the day I’ll either fix it or temporarily disable the SVT test (and add a tracking item to the wiki page). As I noted in the PR, the top-level pom.xml has comments (3?) related to the handling of the samples project. When you get a chance could you look at those and perhaps identify what needs to be done to address them?

I like excluding the examples from the core build. However there is one problem as the test/svt project has a test dependency on the samples/apps project. If this is excluded, the build will probably fail. > I would suggest to adjust the test to not rely on a sample.

I’m fine with both options.
