The page represents a summary of proposed changes in Jenkins JIRA.

Notice for contributors

This document is just a draft. Feel free to add new proposals.
Discussions in jenkinsci-dev

Aims and objectives

  • Simplify the component selection for users
  • Get rid of "forgotten" categories, which are being rarely reviewed by Jenkins contributors (e.g. "www", "master2slave")
  • Make JIRA components similar to GitHub Projects if it is possible
  • Introduce the initial state for incoming issues in order to highlight unrevised requests
  • Create a specific category for new plugin proposals (proposed by Daniel Beck)

Proposals by category

JIRA Workflow changes

  1. Introduce the "Untriaged" state (proposed by Jesse Glick)
    1. This state should be initial for all new issues
    2. "Open" unassigned issues from renamed components should be transferred to this state as well
    3. The similar approach is being used in SECURITY project
  2. Introduce the "Waiting on requester" state (proposed by Oleg Nenashev)
    1. Aims: Better tracking of hanging requests for additional info and timeouts
    2. JIRA bot could distribute weekly summaries about timeouts

Modification of existing components

Approach:

  1. Call IRC Bot to rename/delete the component (see https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/INFRA-100)
  2. Manually update the JIRA component ID on Jenkins Wiki (e.g. jiraComponent=customtools-plugin in "excerpt" section)

(plugin-name)

(plugin-name)-plugin

 

Clearly indicate what's a plugin by adding a suffix like for github repos

 

These non-plugin components are not currently scheduled to be reworked:

  • cli
  • core

Add comments to existing components referring to plugins

These components don't have a comment of the form "(name) plugin" to indicate they're about plugins. Rename (see above) and add comment:

  • analysis-collector
  • analysis-core
  • artifactory
  • backup
  • campfire
  • clearcase-ucm-baseline
  • clone-workspace
  • copy-to-slave
  • cppunit
  • createjobadvanced
  • cvs
  • doclinks
  • fitnesse
  • fortify360
  • github
  • locked-files-report
  • logaction
  • next-build-number
  • parameterized-trigger
  • perfpublisher
  • platformlabeler
  • pview
  • radiatorview
  • rebuild
  • scons
  • selenium
  • startup-trigger-plugin
  • subversion
  • swarm
  • validating-string-parameter

Add missing component owners

Approach:

  • Any plugin component should have an owner (the information can be retrieved from Wiki)
  • "core" component - No owner, we rely on the Untriaged state
  • Jenkins Core components and libraries should have owners as well (see the table above)

Components to be deleted

The table below contains components, which contain the stuff without the explicit component reference. These components should be deleted, all issues should be handled manually.

Proposed actions

Status

security

  1. Transfer all issues to the "Untriaged" state
  2. Inspect and assign issues to proper components (or move to SECURITY)

IN_PROGRESS

hudson.sfbay

  1. Close all issues, because they're outdated (Kohsuke)

DONE

concurrent-build

  1. Transfer all issues to the "Untriaged" state
  2. Inspect and assign issues to proper components

DONE

ant

  1. Create the "ant-plugin" component
  2. Transfer all issues to the "Untriaged" state
  3. Inspect and assign issues to proper components

 

slave-setup

  1. Rename to slave-setup-plugin
  2. Review and cleanup issues (too much garbage)

IN_PROGRESS

oauth-credentials

Same GitHub repose, one of them should be removed:

  1. https://github.com/jenkinsci/oauth-credentials/ (15 commits)
  2. https://github.com/jenkinsci/oauth-credentials-plugin (2 commits)

 

kerberos-authenticator-plugin

Same GitHub repos, one of them should be removed:

  1. https://github.com/jenkinsci/kerberos-authenticator-plugin
  2. https://github.com/jenkinsci/kerberos-auth-plugin (1 commit)

 

New components to be created

The approach:

  • In general, only a single component per GitHub repository should exist
  • Exception: Jenkins Core
    • Main component: core
    • Several top-level components or decoupling candidates can present as standalone components
