Interoperability in forge - fossa2010

  1. 1. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectInteroperability and data lock-in in forges S´bastien Campion e INRIA 9th November, Fossa 2010, Grenoble S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  2. 2. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectOverview 1 Definitions and Uses 2 Interoperability, Coclico project S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  3. 3. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectOverview 1 Definitions and Uses 2 Interoperability, Coclico project S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  4. 4. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectWhat kind of data ? Source code (sources and dependencies) Documentation (installation guide, manual) Bug trackers Lifecycle (Roadmap, TODO, requirements for enhancements) People (community, authors, mailing lists, ...) S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  5. 5. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectWhat usage ? A example use case, a segfault or an error appears during the first uses. 1 Search on google.com 2 Find an answer in the bug tracker 3 Apply the patch All data other than source code are also fundamental in a software developpement process Academic practices and lifecycle free software launch a startup transfer a software to a community, change forge hosting old papers and experimentations need archiving process Must be free and mobile S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  6. 6. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectThe data lock-in problem What happens if : your forge service is down, hosting unavailable ? Google Code decides to change their policies ? Oracle shuts down kenai.com ? you want to change your forge ? A shared problem, “Three Systemic Problems with Open-Source Hosting Site” October 8th, 2009, Eric S. Raymond http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=1282 S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  7. 7. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectCoclico WP2 : Interoperability and data exchange We establish a proposal for an interoperability standard for exchange of data between software development forges. Two steps : 1 Don’t reinvent the wheel, use native format from forge tools svndump, mailman archives, ... trackers : ForgePlucker (Google Code, Berlios, Trac, Savane, Sourceforge, FusionForge) 2 Organise and federate Toolbox and framework integration with semantic index semantic web tools for automatic translation S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  8. 8. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectWork Done : First step A small use case: export/import from FusionForge. Lots of contributions to ForgePlucker to enable export of trackers, people, permissions, news, forums, file release systems Patch FusionForge API to enable data import operations Export process create an archive project.tar.gz What have we learned ? Forge APIs are not sufficient, how to backdate an artifact ? Data is structured but without semantics. Demo at the end https://forge.projet-coclico.org/projects/wp2/ S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  9. 9. Definitions and Uses Interoperability, Coclico projectIn progress, and future In Progress Refactoring and code cleaning Pushing patch on the mainstream Driving and integrating each data extraction process into a single toolbox Future Choose an other Forge (Codendi, Trac, ...) Promote idea and software to build and maintain community Integrate and use web semantic tools to improve data conversion process Production use on INRIAGForge S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  10. 10. Definitions and UsesInteroperability, Coclico projectDemo : export/archive trackers, forums, documents, files from INRIAGForge S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
  11. 11. Definitions and UsesInteroperability, Coclico project Demo : import data in a new project S´bastien Campion e Interoperability and data lock-in in forges
