[JAVA3D-INTEREST] Issue tracking

3 replies [Last post]

Continuing our discussion of issue tracking, it seems we have two
choices, and I'd like to decide before we get too many issues filed.

1. File all issues in the parent java3d project; create a sub-category
for each of j3d-core, j3d-core-utils, vecmath, and j3d-examples (and
probably a "docs" sub-category along with the existing "www" one).

Pros: all issues in one place means one place to file bugs and only one
mailing list to subscribe to; can easily change the sub-category of a
bug that was misfiled (e.g., filer may have thought it was a j3d-core
bug, but turned out to be a j3d-core-utils bug).

Cons: if you are only interested in on sub-category, say vecmath, you
will still get e-mail about all other projects; may be less intuitive
for those looking to file a vecmath bug; when we add other sub-projects,
it could cause confusion if some of them have their own issue tracking
in the sub-project. This last one could be alleviated if we could change
the "Issues tracking" link in the sub-projects to redirect to the parent

2. File issues in the respective sub-project; create a "impl" or
"classes" sub-category in each sub-project to distinguish it from "www"
(and "docs" if we create it).

Pros: more granularity on mailing lists; may be easier to someone
looking to file a specific bug (say, vecmath) if we can't get the
"Issues tracking" link in the sub-projects to redirected to the parent.

Cons: more aliases to keep track of; can't move bugs from one project to
another (will cause us to close some bugs and refile them elsewhere).

I'm now leaning towards #1, filing all Issues in the parent java3d
project with sub-categories for each sub-project. Comments?

To me the Java 3D core consists of Sun's implementation of the core, utils, and vecmath packages, in the sense that even if there were to be a user contributed version of vecmath at some point in time, the issues relevant to that shouldn't pollute those in the official implementation for obvious reasons.

Moreover, I still manage to lose my way in using the java.net issue tracking software, and having to fill in multiple forms is simply not my fancy.

So, Option #1 seems quite appropriate, at least for the present time.

My favorite is #1, too.

First, I feel that each subproject might not file enough bugs to justify an own issue system. Second, there are bugs maybe spanning over subprojects, like the one I filed recently. Appears to be in core, but in the end might turn out to be an issue in core-utils.
Third, Java3D is versioned as a whole. Looking up what has been fixed e.g. 1.3.3, I don't want to query 4 different issue systems.

So if you ask me, head for #1!

Done.

All issues are now being tracked in the parent Java 3D project. For more
information, see the "Reporting Issues" and the "Feedback and
Discussion" sections of http://java3d.dev.java.net/ . Let me know if you
have any questions.
