status of w-c

Renat Lumpau
Hi,

I've gone through the bugs reported against w-c to see where we stand.

1) Show-stoppers:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124440: webapp.eclass calls emerge
        Suggested solution (webapp-cleaner) posted to the bug. I plan to add it
        to the tree in about a week unless there are objections.

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136959: webapps gets uninstalled on
reinstall w/ USE="vhost"
        Suggested solution (eclass fixes) posted to
        http://www.vhost-tools.org/ticket/32 . I would like to fix this ASAP
        without waiting for w-c-1.60. Stuart and wrobel, please review and post
        comments.

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130371: webapp-config not installing
files with correct permissions
        w-c removes +x on files copied to vhost, which breaks CGI apps. This
        needs to be fixed in w-c. wrobel: any thoughts on the timeline?

2) Needed functionality:

http://www.vhost-tools.org/ticket/6: allow webapp-config to install multiple
apps in the same directory
        Needed for plugins etc

3) Needs closure:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124443: webapp.eclass: SLOT mishandling
        I'm planning to remove the warning from the eclass tomorrow. Since
        Halcy0n retired, we should check with QA again whether PVR is
        acceptable.

IMO, the rest can wait. Stuart and wrobel: I would very much appreciate your
comments on the above bugs and proposed solutions. Also, wrobel, it'd be great
to get your thoughts on the timeline for w-c-1.60.

Best,

Great, thanks for the fix.

I am pretty certain that I can review it this week. I only gave it a
short glance so far but this needs a closer look.

I'll add that to my urgent todo-list and should be able to get it done
in the next two weeks.

Would not really like to do that for the current w-c version. But I
admit that I did not try to determine how much time it would take to
implement it in the current version.

Thanks for the effort. I know that I need some pushing concerning w-c
at the moment. It is hard to determine the timeline on w-c-1.60. The
majority of the basic structure is there and the stuff I have been
doing in the last weeks was adding small bits and pieces of
functionality back in. I added a short PLANNING.txt file but that does
not contain too much information yet. I'd definitely like to get the
configuration structure completed before I finish this document. At
that point the class structure should be clear enough to continue
together on the newer version. I hesitate to make promises on the
timeline since that often turns out to be too optimistic. I'd
definitely suggest we continue to use the 1.50.* line for a while and
kill the most important bugs there.

I'm definitely not going to give up on the w-c-1.60 version because I
feel we need a better structure in order to be able to efficiently
maintain the code. I do see the benefit of that in layman and would
like to have a similar situation with w-c.

Cheers

Gunnar
