Here is some doc I wrote about GenericSetup:


A very nice writeup.  Could we get it (or the non CPS-specific bits)
added to docs for GenericSetup?

I just added a 'doc' directory and checked in the fragments of documentation I had in my sandbox. Everybody is welcome to change and improve those docs. Florent's writeup would be indeed a valuable contribution.

BTW: In which checkin list do GenericSetup checkins show up now?

A couple of points:

  - The "selective export" think *used* to work;  I didn't know it was
    broken.  I used it frequently in the project which spawned the
    move from CMFSetup to  GenericSetup.

Florent writes about *incremental* exports, not about *selective* exports. Selecting specific export steps should still work.

  - The "upgrade" feature you talk about for CPS sounds a bit like what
    the "version" attribute was originally for on import steps:  in the
    original implementation, the tool knew what versions of import steps
    had been run in the past, and you could see which steps were "newer"
    (or had never been run) on the import view.  I don't know where that
    feature went.   It seems as though we should either add your update
    feature, or else resurrect the "version" UI (or maybe both?)

I have to admit that I never understood why import steps have a "version" attribute. And I still don't understand that concept: Does that mean each upgrade needs its own import steps?
