Hi Dmitri,

wiki.openmama.org is soon to be decommissioned, though I turned on write access for the OpenMAMA github wiki this morning if you want to start there?

Cheers,
Frank

Hi Damian,

For me the problem was in OpenMAMA, specifically, it was absence of clear and precise description of dependences: what's for the dependency is used, what versions for each platform and where from it gets retrieved for continuous integration.

If you guys think it's worth having, then please give me credentials for http://wiki.openmama.org/ I could start making such table.

Cheers
Dmitri

For what it’s worth, I agree with Frank’s take here. I was looking at some of Dmitri’s questions last night and had to modify my own test environment to be able to recreate some of them – there’s clearly just too many factors for a project like ours to handle sensibly.

 

A side note on this – where we’re having to do something particularly unusual (such as copying header files around, or modifying includes), it might be beneficial for us to take the time to understand why. If it’s a problem with the way we use the libraries, that should probably be something we fix in OpenMAMA; If it’s a problem with the third party, we should probably see if we can either commit a fix upstream to the projects themselves, or at least raise a bug with them to see if it can be resolved (something we can point to the next time someone asks). Making our own changes and hiding them away is probably not the spirit of open source collaboration we’re going for.

 

Cheers,
