Re: [PROPOSAL] One development list

2009-10-11 Thread Torsten Curdt
 Care to elaborate a bit?

I'd argue that for the people who care it's no big deal to subscribe
to the various lists. So tuning in is no problem, tuning out once
consolidated indeed is. It's an all-or-nothing. How is oversight
better when everyone (or at least all PMC members) are subscribed to
all dev list as opposed to just the one?

While the one dev list might work OK for Commons I have the feeling
that these projects are just too different. In Commons one could
imagine to step up for another component. I don't see that with the
rest that is left at jakarta.

If there are many cross-posting (that would be a sign for
cross-concerns) I haven't noticed any.

At least I don't see the benefits of a consolidation. I would rather
ask all PMC members to subscribe to all dev list than merging the
lists. Not to talk about the mailing list archive confusions and
hassle this might create.

but well - that's just my opinion and the -1 should not be
blocking. Just saying that I don't like the idea.

2007-05-16 Thread Torsten Curdt

so this thread died again without a conclusion or resulution.

My take with as few words as possible:

* push for active project to go TLP
* jakarta.apache.org - the portal to all java projects at apache.  
Just a shell - but let's keep the brand. Not necessarily a PMC  
required. (Although a non-code project trying to improve  
collaboration between java projects would be an idea to discuss)
* ${commons}.apache.org - as people have concerns about the name (as  
there is more than java) let's find a new one.

  - commonsj
  - jcommons
  - ...
* dormant.apache.org - maybe a place where we put not just old stuff  
from jakarta

Re: Re: Re: Re: Opening up the PMC

2006-08-18 Thread Torsten Curdt

 Why that combination? ...feels quite unnatural to me - I am sure so it will
 for the users.

It's our list of small largely inactive subprojects. We know that none of
those are going to go TLP, and their dev lists are quiet by an order of
magnitude compared to an inactive TLP potential project like Slide.


True ...but that grouping is not obvious to the users. Besides conditions
*could* change.


 Combining mailinglist would definitely get a -1 from me. I don't want the
 few BCEL subscribers left to unsubscribe because they get annoyed
 because they are receiving mails they are not interested in.

 We might get away with that at commons - but in general I think it's
 quite a bad idea.

We've a bunch of relatively small codebases and subprojects that on their
own are a stretch to maintain oversight over. It's a match for the Commons
approach of having those communities share the same space and help each
other on general issue topics, such as releases.


Well, oversight does not really apply to the users. Besides developers
could subscribe to all sub projects list. We could even ask comitters or
at least PMC members to subscribe to all of them to achieve the same
kind of oversight. ...it would just be more convenient for the users.

IMO rather have it too fine grained and combine than too general and you
are stuck with what you don't want.

The problem with moving Commons up is that when you look at where Jakarta
needs to go, and when you look at where Commons generally is now; they are
the same places - and it's hard to distinguish between the focuses.


Hm... interesting... funnily I have never seen it like that before.
Always had the
impression jakarta is for products while commons is for libraries. Sometimes
it's just not that clear where to draw the line though.


Jakarta needs a way to blend community oversight with small numbers of
active committers per component. That's pretty much Commons. For a start,
I would merge BCEL, BSF, ECS, JCS, ORO and Regexp dev lists into either
[EMAIL PROTECTED] or [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Re: Re: Opening up the PMC

2006-08-10 Thread Torsten Curdt

Just a few comments (as I am a bit late)

At Cocoon every committer can join the PMC by just asking for it. The
idea is that committer do care and shape the project anyway. If you
don't care enough about the project - why would you be a committer? We
are quite open and were working out most of the things on the dev list
anyway. This seems to work pretty well for the Cocoon community.

...well, now with Jakarta this is a little different situation - as
stated before it's an umbrella project. Which actually makes the
position of the PMC a bit more complicated ...why should a committer
to commons have an impact on the direction of e.g. hivemind. So maybe
we need to be a bit more selective for the PMC members (as we are).
Maybe.

But if you argue into that direction -no matter how often this has
been discussed already- I would rather question the idea of an
umbrella PMC then... (*ducks*)

Re: Managing communities and emails (was Re: [PROPOSAL] Jakarta Language Components)

2006-03-14 Thread Torsten Curdt
i like the idea of tagging emails better: a single list with cool  
server
side filtering and metrics. we don't have the technology for this  
yet so

i'm willing to see the mailing lists split so long as people would be
willing to consider coming back if it every arrives...



I was just considering proposing exactly this!


A joke turns into something serious ...but I am all with you guys.
As I said: the more I think about it - the more I like the idea!

The another really cool feature with this tagging approach
would be that cross-posting would no longer need to be banned
- it would just not exist.

A set of checkboxes would allow a user to subscribe to various  
lists,
or to virtual groupings such as jakarta commons which would  
implicitly

subscribe to the list for every project that is tagged as being a
jakarta-commons project. Of course this implies fine-grained email  
lists

(ie one for each project); the problems of partitioning the subscriber
base too much is avoided by the existence of the groupings.


Yepp!


This system would allow overlapping groups to occur; for example
commons-digester can be filed under both commons and xml virtual
groups; someone subscribing to *either* group would receive
digester-related emails. It also allows projects to move from one PMC
to another without destroying the existing community (which *is*  
the set

of people receiving emails).


Great possibilites

Groups also allow new projects to be created and added to the  
group; all

people subscribed to the group would then automatically get emails
related to that new project.

Any list which has less than 3 subscribers would automatically forward
its emails to the PMC list (or similar) for purposes of oversight.


interesting


Any person subscribed to 3 or more projects associated with commons
would automatically be subscribed to the whole commons group (or maybe
just sent a weekly nag email recommending they do so). That hopefully
allows casual commons developers to get just postings for one or two
projects, without destroying the useful commons-wide community that
exists now.

Having a single point for managing subscriptions would also help  
greatly

with something that regularly frustrates me: suspending subscription
when I'm away on holiday. Currently, I need to unsubscribe to
half-a-dozen lists then resubscribe on return.


Yepp!

Another thing that would be awesome is to integrate it with a
powerful archive system ...and then provide feeds for all the
different tag combinations - and even individual threads!
Man - that would be awesome!


This sort of functionality probably already exists in one of the
open-source mailing list management packages; it isn't anything  
radical

as far as I can see.


Now we only have to find such a project and then convince infrastructure

...regarding the forums - na. What does that help?
I hate the fact I always have to subscribe to forums and
never liked the interfaces.

Judging from myself, users don't like to have to subscribe to mailing

I would hate to get every question and answer in the Spring forums as
mail. I'd much rather check the forums every once in a while.

I am too lazy to always go and check forums.
With the tagging approach you would only have to
really subscribe once. ...and as I said - having feeds would be awesome.

You misunderstood: Patrick told me that the 'special' feature of the
system that they use at OpenQA is that it can be used both as a
mailing list (e.g. for the developers) and a forum (for the users if
you want). Therefore, you'd register at a mailing list just as before
and have nothing to do at all with the forum-view, but users could
instead use the forum (and thus won't get all the - for them - noise).
And the system automatically maps between the mailing list and the
forum.


I think what you are basically saying is you want a poll
not a push service. IMO feeds are much better for that
than a forum. But of course you could combine all these
things.

thousand spam mails.

unnecessary.

 I think continuing with the current attitude would only lead my company
 to reevaluate its involvement in ASF projects, and I could not really
 blame them if they did. Of course, this may be what some people here
 seek (hopefully, it is not and it's just my paranoia at work).

I am sure the community is thankful for the individual
contributions and therefor is also thankful for the
companies letting their employees spend time for working
on Apache projects. But...

Usually companies don't let their employees spend
so much time (and therefor money) just for the good
of mankind. Usually they have an interest in fixing
certain things because they want to benefit from a
product being developed and maintained by a large
number of developers they *don't* have to pay.

As a matter of fact we have quite some committers
in our community that are sponsored by the companies
they are working for. Who is able to define whether
who is the leading or main contributor? I would
not want to risk picking the wrong one and pissing
off other contributors. So either name them all or
drop this classification. Terms like main or leading
are a problem.

Naming them all for such an award is very inappropriate
IMO. No problem listing all the companies that contribute
to a certain project somewhere. A contributors file ...or
even on the website. But refering to JBoss as the main
contributor is not in the spirit of the community IMO.
So that's why we should ask for the change.

Assuming JBoss will respect the community this
should be no problem at all ...and be no reason
to reevaluate the involvement.

 The release [incorrectly] attributes Apache's Tomcat 5.0 product to The

Also the incorrectly

 Apache Jakarta Project and leading Tomcat contributor JBoss.
 
 There is one big problem with this attribution for us, Apache does not
 have a concept of leading contributors. It is completely out of sync
 with the very philosophies that lie at the heart of the Apache Software
 Foundation (ASF), as there are 70 committers to the Tomcat codebase,
 many of whom are employed by other companies or contribute individually.
 
 We would like to request that this be changed to:

request sounds a bit harsh ...what about see

 Tomcat 5.0 (The Apache Software Foundation)
 
 in both the press release (pdf url above) and the forthcoming June 2005
 issue.
 
 Officially the name of the product is Apache Tomcat 5.0 and not just
 Tomcat 5.0, but I will leave it to your discretion as to whether you'd
 like to prefix Tomcat with Apache or not, as the subsequent mention of
 the ASF is fine.

...always play nice on the first contact.

My 2 cents

Same here! ...there was a poll about how many

IIRC *one* responded. Other than that there
are just users around waiting for patches being
applied or just lurking.

The general question is what to do with such
projects, and I think we should be open to creative ideas.
The question is whether those projects
maybe missed to nominate some more committers?
...maybe it would be worth looking into the
patch queue? Not applying patches is also
one way to make people go away.
There has been
some suggestion that they be cleaned up by migrating them to some other
domain to be mothballed.  The code, web site, and mailing list archives
would be preserved, and could be restored at such time in the future when a
community might arise.
Hmm... the question is whether we really *can* mothballing them.
IMHO too many projects rely on them. It's an important piece of
technology. At least bugfixes need to be applied. FWICS migration
costs (e.g. to asm) are fairly high.
There *are* people that have patches in the queue.
BCEL and BSF both seem to be in danger of having no actual Apache
community
I only know about BCEL ...but that's for sure a danger I see too!

Re: new sandbox projects

2004-12-15 Thread Torsten Curdt
Any Apache committer can have sandbox karma just for the asking.

The only complication is that the committer will need to get the jakarta 
unix group, so it'll take us a little bit longer to add karma.
Any voting needed for the sandbox components?
Otherwise it would be great if I could get
access to the sandbox so I can move the stuff
over.

new sandbox projects

2004-12-14 Thread Torsten Curdt
Hey, folks!
Over at cocoon we have some code that might be worth
sharing on jakarta commons. So I was wondering
if the sandbox is open to any committer or only to
jakarta committers? (which I am not) I heard
different stories...
I factored out our javaflow (java continuations)
implementation and a java compiler interface (jci)
featuring a compiling classloader.
Any opinions on hosting that at jakarta commons?
Or should we keep that stuff under our umbrella?
cheers

support for native java continuations

2004-07-15 Thread Torsten Curdt
We'd like to invite everyone who is interested
to join our initiative on codehaus.org. We are
aiming to write and submit a JSR for native java
continuations support inside the JVM.
We are currently looking for people that have
any kind of expertise in the continuations field
or just like to support the effort by any means.
Please subscribe by sending a mail to
 [EMAIL PROTECTED]
all post will have to go to

Re: support for native java continuations

2004-07-15 Thread Torsten Curdt
Just curious:
Why is this not developed under the Apache Incubator?
Is there a reason for the codehaus move?
We already have a first implementation
based on java byte code transformation
(via BCEL) in Cocoon. But this initiative
is aiming for a JSR that hopefully give us
native support - one day...
Actually there is no particular reason
for codehaus. They were just very quick
setting everything up :) Besides it's
only for collaboration on the JSR. So
there should be no code involved.

I am probably ignorant, but what are continuations?
Hope these links help to get the picture...
