[webkit-dev] Proposal: feature branch

2007-05-09 Thread Maciej Stachowiak


Hi everyone,

The WebKit tree has been locked down for stabilization for a long  
time, and I think there is a desire to work on features and less  
essential bug fixes. It would be bad to hold this up indefinitely as  
stabilization continues. I propose we create a branch (tentative  
name: feature-branch) where feature work, as well as non-critical  
compliance, compatibility and performance work can go.


We would still use normal review policy so that changes could be  
merged to trunk in the future without additional review.


To make this work well, we'd need a buildbot tracking the branch, and  
maybe even separate nightly builds once there is interesting stuff in  
there.


Thoughts?

Regards,
Maciej

I for one would welcome such a development, as I would be able to  
resume the patches supporting CSS font-weight and font-stretch  
properties which I was working on. It would also give hyatt somewhere  
to put his recent @font-face work :-)

Hi all,

I've created the branch for feature development in r21341.  For  
contributors without commit access you can check out the branch from http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/branches/feature-branch/ 
.  Contributors with commit access should use svn+ssh://[EMAIL PROTECTED]/svn/webkit/branches/feature-branch 
.  As Maciej noted in his original email, the usual review process  
applies to all changes being landed on this branch.


Regards,
Mark

[webkit-dev] Re: Running Layout Tests on Linux

(I'm moving this thread to webkit-dev, which is the appropriate  
mailing list for questions/discussion about the development of WebKit  
itself)

Hello Everyone,

Could any of you get to a script that can run the Layout Tests of  
WebKit on Linux?
I could run the run-webkit-tests script on Mac, but I couldn't  
run it on Linux!! It looks like it has some Mac OS system calls...

Any idea about the solution?


   run-webkit-tests essentially just drives DumpRenderTree, which is  
an application that runs each individual test. So far, I believe  
DumpRenderTree is only available for the Mac and Qt platforms. If you  
are building WebKit on Qt, you should be able to use run-webkit-tests  
without problems (we have a bot that does this regularly at http:// 
build.webkit.org/). If you are trying to run the WebKit tests on some  
other platform (e.g., Gdk), you'll need to port DumpRenderTree first.  
The source for DumpRenderTree is in WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree, which  
you can see here http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/browser/trunk/ 
WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree.
