I'm hoping to get an RC artifact out for a vote early next week. We've been
going through a test install to make sure the code is good and the
installation notes are clear.
Here is a wiki page I have that's my checklist of what is left:
I haven't crossed off the CHANGELOG part because I want to generate a new one
right before making the svn tag.
Is there anything else we need to do before making the artifact and calling a
I noticed on
http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/VCL/VCL+2.1+goals that one of
the goals is 'Modularize OS code'. Is there a timeline for when (or
what revision) that goal is to be met by?
The way the OS code is modularized out today has greatly improved from
when I first started looking at the VCL code. However, I did a quick
search for 'linux' and found the following subroutines with
linux-specific code (I may have missed a few):
As well as some code in the provisioning modules.
In addition, I think moving away from having a predefined windows,
blade, lab, etc identity key and instead have determining which key to
use being part of the OS module go go a long ways towards this
modularization. Or better yet, move all the ssh calls into OS-specific
modules so that someone can add support for an OS that doesn't require
ssh (ie an alternate windows module).
