Subject Issues raised during Optiq 0.9.0 release vote
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2014 18:17:41 GMT
A few issues were raised during the vote for Apache Optiq 0.9.0 (incubating) [0]. I started
a separate thread to avoid muddying the vote. I address them below.

This DTD is used as a URI that represents the particular version of the XML grammar and is
not referenced at run time. (As evidenced by the fact that the project can be built using
“mvn -o”, i.e. offline.) If we copied the DTD it would lose its effect of specifying the
particular version of the XML grammar. Other projects (e.g. Hive) use the same DOCTYPE header
for their checkstyle suppressions file.

Not much in root src because it is the parent module (i.e. serves to combine several child
modules); most of the code is in child modules, principally core.

$ for i in $(find . -name src); do wc $(find $i -type f) | awk -v i=$i '$4 == "total" {print
NR, $1, $2, $3, i}'; done

There is an issue for this: Code re-org is
disruptive, both for this project and for dependent projects, and we chose to get a release
out first.

I think we should comply with the norm. I’ve logged

We actually tried this release, but backed off when it seemed that we were fighting maven.

I plan to do this as I roll out the release to mirrors. I didn’t know if it was even possible
to populate “dist” until you have an approved release.
