Utilities PMC Agenda and Notes - 2015-05-05


Update on CI tools (Mike Dalessio)

Update on CLI (Greg Oehman)

Update on Eclipse plugin and Java tools (Ryan Morgan)

Open Discussion

Update on CI tools (Mike Dalessio)

GoCD <> still in use for some projects, but there’s
movement towards Concourse <> and teams are
enthusiastic about it. Currently Diego, Garden, BOSH-lite, Loggregator, and
CLI have converted to Concourse; and BOSH, Services API, and Buildpacks are
in progress.

Timeline is open for individual teams to move to Concourse; some teams may
decide not to. Having a heterogenous CI environment is OK, as both GoCD and
Concourse can integrate via S3 buckets, which is where generated artifacts
are generally kept.

Update on CLI (Greg Oehmen)

Released 6.11.0 - 4/17

Released 6.11.1 - 4/20

Released 6.11.2 - 4/28

Big uptick in issues/PRs

Plugin API feature

Look Ahead:

1. help refactor work,

- refactor help

- invert syntax (object - action)

- tab/bash completion

2. support the move to cc API 3.0 and services api changes

3. the user security work (pwd expiration, inactivity-based session
timeout, RBAC maturation, etc.)

4. installer emphasis

- Auto-update within CLI

- signed mac installer

- signed windows installer

- etc

5. APM integration - something like blessed-contrib:
