Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11731) Rework the changelog and releasenotes
Date Sun, 05 Apr 2015 00:04:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11731?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14396008#comment-14396008

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-11731:

bq. Why don't we use the git commit message instead of JIRA summary?

This has already been somewhat covered on the mailing list, but:

a) because we have to hit JIRA for the other information anyway.
b) parsing the commit logs is trickier than one thinks.

bq.  The git commit message is supposed to be the same as the entry in CHAGNES.txt.

Looking at https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToCommit, that isn't true.  In the vast majority
of cases, however, I'd place money that JIRA summary==CHANGES.txt entry==git commit log entry.
 But typos happen and these are much easier to fix in the JIRA summary by leaps and bounds.

bq. I disagree since the automation may have bugs or may not work at all.

Then our release notes have been broken for over 2 years, since it's effectively the same
code but with different formatting.  


At this point, this JIRA is beating a horse that's been long dead.  The code is committed.
 If there are issues with the code, then file new JIRAs against it.  I'm pretty much going
to ignore any new messages here and continue working on getting the rest of the release process
updated to take advantage of it.

> The current way we generate these build artifacts is awful.  Plus they are ugly and,
in the case of release notes, very hard to pick out what is important.
