Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1999) Download HEADER should not have pointer to nightly builds
Date Thu, 22 Jul 2010 22:39:50 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-1999:

Developers are members of the general public -- any page a developer can see can be seen by
anybody else as well.

While i agree the previous link was bad, i quite frankly don't understand your concern with
the current situation....

HEADER.html doesn't even mention nightly builds -- it directs people interested in "(unofficial,
unreleased) source code for Solr" to [a wiki page|]
which makes it very clear it's audience is developers, and which has info on how to check
out the development branches.

Admittedly that HackingSolr page does mention that we have a nightly build system, so a non-developer
might click the link about hacking on the source and then get intersted in the nightly builds
-- but it doesn't even link directly to any builds -- instead it links to a [hudson page|]
where there is a list of branches that have builds, and if you click on one of those you can
get a [branch build status page|]
and from there you can scroll all the way to the bottom to click on [an artifacts link|]
and from *there* you can actually click on a link to download something that could be called
a nightly build.

That seems like it fits the definition of "developer pages, not the pages intended for all

I'm hard pressed to imagine a way to make it harder for non-developers to find those builds
while still linking to those hudson pages for "developers"
