Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Mynewt 1.0.0-b1-incubating-rc2
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 12:40:35 GMT

+1 non-binding

I checked:

 - incubating in name

 - hashes correct

 - Can compile from source for newt and blinky. All tests run for core.

Here are a few things I noticed when checking that don't affect the
release but might help if added to docs in future:

1) Should point out type of sha sum somehow. Perhaps in the .sha file.
Could call it .sha512
2) referenced in
blinky README is missing. Found introduction at os/introduction and
build instructions via os/get_started/get_started/ which took me to
3) In stage 4 of build newt on you have to export
the newt path before you can run it. I think this needs to be pointed
out just after the build instructions, not in the bracketed part after
telling you to run 'newt'.
4) export newt="go run $GOPATH/"
seems wrong on my machine since GOPATH would need /src included. Should
possibly be export newt="go run

Not everything seems to work with newt test all, here is what happened
for me:

blinky - $newt test all - 'no testable packages found'. Installed with
$newt install && $newt build my_blinky_sim
core - $newt test all - all tests passed. I wasn't sure if you could
actually build this from the root directory or had to build each
individual project.
newt - $newt test all - 'Error: No project file found!' I successfully
built it with ./
