  • Report of May 19th Cubicweb Meeting

    2020/05/20 by Simon Chabot

    Hi everyone,

    Yesterday we held a new CubicWeb meeting, and we would like to share with you what was said during that meeting :

    • some issues have been migrated from forge to the heptapod forge. You can find them here. Only the issues which were in the cubicweb-dev-board have been migrated, the others have been considered too old to make their migration worthwhile ;

    • new milestones have been created, and some issues have been affected to them ;

    • if you want to help out with Cubicweb's development, you can have a look to the Issues Board, and pick one task in the “To Do” column (this task should be related to a milestone) ;

    • CW tests are still failing on the forge, and it's also related to other packages that have been released. Fixing those tests is quite urgent now, therefore we suggest to fix them in a sprint this Friday afternoon. Feel
      free to join !

    • On main Cubicweb's dependencies (RQL, YAMS, logilab-common, etc), a heptapod job has been added to trigger CW's tests with the last version of the dependency in the forge and not only the last released version on pypi. This should help to release new versions of CW's dependencies with
      more confidence. (for now, it only triggers the job, a future version of heptapod should provide a better integration of multi-project pipelines) ;

    • The documentations of CubicWeb's dependencies are now automatically published on readthedocs. The work is in progress for CubicWeb itself ;

    Next week, if the tests are successful, we will talk about a release candidate for 3.28.

    Stay tuned :)

  • Report of May 26th Cubicweb Meeting

    2020/05/26 by Henri Cazottes


    Welcome back to another weekly report! Today, the following topics have been discussed.

    Broken tests situation, follow up

    Migrating CubicWeb to Heptapod and modifications in dependencies resulted in broken tests as it was presented last week. Work has been done on Friday afternoon thanks to Simon and Laurent, but it's not fixed yet. Tox is now happy but we still have a bug on a test that succeeds locally but not when run by the CI job. We do have a lead which may concern firefox usage in headless mode. Jobs logs are available here.

    Milestone update

    • Introduced types
      • Types have been added in Yams, merge request about to be reviewed
      • We choose to dissociate this issue from the actual release as it's more related to Yams and not mandatory to release a 3.28 version.
      • Re-build ReadTheDoc for every release
      • Done for most of the dependencies but not CubicWeb yet
      • Two dependencies, mtconvert and constraint don't have doc nor tests, we think about removing them instead of creating and maintaining this code which is pretty old
    • Move to semantic versionning
      • we talked about improving dependencies requirements to ease the release process (not giving only one version)
      • we think we should stick to semver, but we need to discuss it more (should we bump all major version to the same number for interoperable dependencies, etc...)
      • As those questions need to be discussed, we choose to move this issue to the 3.29 milestone
    • Add tests to content negociation
      • Need to be done
    • Check if ?vid=rdf is still working
      • Done
      • We did spot that requesting vid=rdf or using content negotiation would not return the same RDF. We should fix this to have a more consistent behavior. Will be added for the next release.

    Todo before releasing version 3.28

    To sum up, before releasing the next CubicWeb version, we need to:

    • Fix CI tests
    • Add automatic doc re-build to the CubicWeb CI

    This should be done and released within the next two weeks.

    Side notes

    • For the next release we should align CubicWeb with changes made in Yams
    • Release early, release often

    See you next week!
