Subject [jira] [Commented] (INCUBATOR-231) Cleanup Git-generated Incubator website
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2019 17:00:00 GMT


David Fisher commented on INCUBATOR-231:

I am not sure if I agree on moving everything to git. I think that the parts that are foundation
records should remain in SVN.

Records would be:
 # /content/podlings.xml (or whatever the successor to that would be.)
 # /content/(podlings or projects)/(project).(xml or yml) (or whatever we determine is the
source of record for podling status.)
 # /content/ip-clearance/

I think that we should reach out to Whimsy team to help with UI for updating these records
once we determine the final format. 

Processes should certainly move:
 # Clutch update scripts which do the following.
 ** Build pickle file of podling status
 ** Create data for various pages in the Incubator Site.
 ** Create data for emailed status and reporting process.
 # Reporting scripts
 ** Email reminders.
 ** Monthly Report Template updated for Confluence.
 ** New: Email podling dev sites their "Clutch view monthly"
 # New pages
 ** Podling status page (includes a version for retired and graduated podlings.)
 ** Podling listing page with current, graduated and retired podlings.
 ** Clutch page with status of current podlings. Status should reflect the steps on podling
has accomplished on their way towards graduation. Perhaps code is shared with Whimsy.
 ** IP Clearance page.
 # New scripts
 ** Create podling status files and clutch entry.
 ** Retire podling to update status and clutch.
 ** Graduate podling to update status and clutch.
 ** Memorialize podling LDAP and Mentors in status when graduating or retiring.

Before we proceed in a small incremental way with this large undertaking we need to determine
what format we wish to use for podling status. Choices include:
 # XML.
 # YML.
 # Doap / RDF.

Goals for these changes should be to:
 # Better serve podlings by making status and expectations part of the workflow.
 # Better serve mentors by easing their tasks to limit the amount of Incubator redcap and
semisecret records they need to learn.
 # Better streamline the process so that a podling's transition to TLP is eased.

> [] is generated from []
but a few things (clutch, project pages) are still maintained under []
> We should cleanup and unify for consistency, and there's a number of folders in svn that
are not used anymore. Everything should move to Git to avoid confusion.
> Also, a lot of the projects information in the XML files found under []
is duplicated in other places, LDAP, podlings websites etc - it would be good to clean that
up and simplify those pages to adapt to our current workflows, while preserving history where
it makes sense.
> There are also YAML files with yet more duplicated information at []
, not sure if that's used or useful.
