I would like to start a discussion about the role of the foodcoops organization.
The reason is wvengen’s comment. He is totally right and it bugs me too, that the foodcoops/foodsoft repo is not a fork of bennibu/foodsoft. But on the other hand i think that a fork is not what we do at foodcoops/foodsoft unless the new stuff dosen’t go into upstream (bennibu/foodsoft).
I don’t know how much time bennibu can invest into the foodsoft project. I would like to read some thoughts from him. In my mind it would be ideal to move the bennibu/foodsoft into the foodcoops repos that we can work on the upstream together.
Thanks for the mail. I’d like to ask Mathijs on his opinion, he is
currently on holiday.
I’ve also mailed bennibu (and invited him to join the list(s)) about the
github organisation. My hope is that he would want to move his
repository - then also all forks will point to foodcoops/foodsoft (I
asked Github support about that).
you don’t have to merge rails-3 into master.
i renamed foodsoft to foodsoft-tmp. after you moved the repository to the foodcoops organization i’ll merge in the changes from foodsoft-tmp and delete the old repo (after moving all the issues
I’ll do the merges from the foodsoft-tmp into the foodsoft repo tonight or tomorrow.
Then we have to move the wiki and issues from wvengen and foodsoft-tmp.
I think it’s a good idea if we focus on working with pull requests after the cleanup.
If i didn’t missed anything we should be on one page with https://github.com/foodcoops/foodsoft
I copied most of the wiki pages, not sure if i got them all.
Now only the issues have to be moved and we are done with it.
Next thing might be to talk about the branches. We should delete old and unused branches.
Check wiki is complete (from foodsoft-tmp and wvengen) - done
Move issues from foodsoft-tmp and wvengen
Move foodcoop-adam-specific wiki content to separate pages [wvengen]
Discuss how to use branches and pull requests, and document it
Discuss how to handle foodcoop-specific changes. Currently:
o foodcoop-adam has branch and wiki pages in main foodsoft repo.
This is confusing, e.g. also foodcoop-adam-specific bugs are
o foodcoop-rostock (formerly balkansalat) has its own organisation
o another option would be that each foodcoop gets its own
repository in the foodcoops organisation
o create a wiki list of places where foodsoft is used (I’m curious
what other users of foodsoft are there!)
Cleanup tickets & milestones
How do we manage multiple languages in the wiki? We could add a
language prefix/suffix (for non-english) to page names, or use
english only and host help pages somewhere else (e.g. as default
wiki pages in foodsoft). (I’m thinking of “Doku”, “Quickstart” and
“Äpfel u. Birnen”)
p.s. I had intended foodsoft-discuss for non-technical discussions where
all foodcoops can share ideas and discuss how things are going in their
foodcoop and foodsoft. This would be more suitable for foodsoft-dev, in
my view. Do you agree? I so, I think we can move the thread easily.
