How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Build

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

With Hudson driving builds from the top; Git, Gerrit, Maven, and Tycho in the middle; and Mylyn controlling the pieces from the developer's desktop, The Eclipse Foundation provides an impressive stack of technologies for building software. All this great technology combined with governance, intellectual property management, architectural guidance, and coordination via the simultaneous release, combine to deliver an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution that is the envy of other open source projects and IT departments around the globe.

The Eclipse and Equinox projects began their Git migration shortly after the Indigo release. Two CVS repositories. Ten years of history. Transformed into 25 Git repositories. What challenges did we face while migrating our large code base? How did the build process change? How did we massage the repositories? How did we accommodate platform specific binaries and trim large repositories? How did we help our committers during the transition? These stories and more, including commentary from your favourite committers.
