Meeting Notes

Apr 26, 2022

  • Progress on the Google sheet that is collecting the data
    • Any problems encountered?
    • When Peace forked a plugin and searched for “master” in GitHub with the forked plugin, she did not find any matches
      • When she searched in the original repository, it found “master” references
      • GitHub search ignores forked repositories (their own pages says that)
        • Need to do the searches in the original repository, not the fork
        • May be even more complicated, some plugins in jenkinsci are listed as forks of another plugin
      • GitHub search indexing may be delayed until sometime after the fork
        • Tried it again this morning and it still shows empty search result
    • When GitHub indexing is not available, work around is
    • Last session we did a demonstration of how to change terminology on GitHub
  • Change terminology locally as a demonstration
    • Mark, please publish the recordings promptly
    • Demonstrated with the setup-slaves-plugin repository
      • Multiple changes that were needed, html, jelly, and pom.xml
  • Timeline reminder of the project phases

  • Part 1 - Choosing your plugin, update the parent pom, update Jenkins base version
  • Part 2 - Spotbugs, incremental builds, dependency updates, and release drafter
  • Part 3 - Migrate docs to GitHub, add a “report an issue” link, interactive testing
  • Part 4 - Enable continuous delivery, plugin bill of materials
  • Part 5 - Topics and labels on repositories, resolving security scan reports
