Re: Beta1 PR deadline

2020-09-10 Thread Dr Paul Dale
Shane has done the IG D.9 work: it is in #12835 and is awaiting review.  I 
think it should be in beta if possible.  It’s mostly adding a second test case 
due to NIST changing guidance recently, so low risk and helpful for the lab.

As Shane notes in 12801, there will be some conflicts generated over the FIPS 
error handling and self tests, hopefully they won’t slow progress.

12754 could be considered optional and something better should likely be done 
for 3.1 that what I’m planning there.  With RAND_DRBG removed, there is nothing 
remotely comparable.  Even RAND_DRBG is a bit of a stretch as a comparison.


The API renaming discussion *must* reach a conclusion before beta.

I believe the "blockers" to be:

Aside from these there are potential PRs not yet opened but slated for

There's also this issue - but I'm not sure that it needs to be resolved

Dear Kurt,

I have 3 regression bugs, but I hope they can be dealt with after beta1.

Hi Matt et al.,

thanks to good collaboration with OTC members I've been able to get approved
most of my open PRs that would be good be included before feature freeze,
while a few such PRs appear 'nearly' approved.

Given the 24-hours grace period, the PRs #12478
, #12741
, and #12769
 won't make it today,
or is there a chance to still get them into beta1 a little later?

As far as my PRs are concerned (most of which have been related to some
extent to the CMP contribution):

Thanks to intensified exchange with OTC reviewers, everything that I see
urgent for inclusion before feature freeze
has either been merged already or meanwhile has been approved and is
going to be merged by tomorrow.

Just very few fixes/cleanups are not yet fully reviewed but I believe
they can still be handled during the beta phase.

It would be very nice if there was object-focused (rather than "oriented")
documentation for OpenSSL.
Tell me what all the structures/typedefs are, and then tell me what things 
operate on them.
(I tried to start documentation like that for the CMS parts, but I got 
distracted.)

I'd prefer a procedure with explicit hold and explanation in the comments.

I would refine this procedure as follows: the team member who intends to do the 
merge (the "merger"),
needs to issue re-review requests for all unresolved change requests (there is 
a spinning button next the
name of the reviewer to do this). The person who receives the re-review request 
can either dismiss its
review or indicate that it intends to review within x hours. Otherwise, the 
merger can dismiss the stale review.

GitHub can be configured to require approval. It then gives a clear visual 
indication that the PR is
not ready to be merged, and the Merge button is greyed out. This should be 
obvious enough,
even more obvious than a label, which can also easily be ignored.

Of course, our merge procedure circumvents the merge button, I'm only talking 
about the visual
indicator. Alternatively, the pre-receive-hook on the git.openssl.org server 
could enforce the policy
by checking the  reviewer state via GitHub API queries.

Re: More GitHub labels

2020-09-10 Thread Dr Paul Dale
Matthias,

Your suggestion seems workable too.  PRs are merged with outstanding change 
requests indicated — a reviewer comments, the comments are addressed then a 
different reviewer approves without the original review being removed.  The 
labels are a bit more in your face.  A hybrid “hold: required changes see 
review/comments” might be workable.

The two use cases you mention are actually better handled by a change request 
(via GitHub review) instead of a label:
A team member can formulate a change request to block the merging. Here he has 
more freedom to formulate what
needs to be done. This includes your two use cases, as well as the use case for 
the label [hold: need rebase].

The problem with it is that currently we count only approvals and don’t 
consider unresolved change requests
as a blocker. I think we should change that. This does not mean that a reviewer 
who made a change request
two months ago and lost interest is forced to re-review, only that such stale 
reviews must be dismissed
explicitly, if the reviewer does not respond to a re-review request within a 
certain time period.
