Subject Re: Nightly Builds of Nars/NiFi
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2018 19:06:47 GMT

I’d suggest you look at using Jenkins or some other CI tool to schedule a nightly build
of the processors you need. If the core framework changes aren’t what you are concerned
with, this could be a simple solution. Just checkout the git repository, build the processor
modules, and copy the resulting *ARs into a staging directory so your instances can pull from

Unfortunately, I do not thing this is a task that the official Apache project can undertake
at this time.

 Earlier on, we back in the 0.x days we needed the core NiFi container-piece because that
was moving so fast, but as of late, it's really just Processors, Controller Services, etc.

 The important thing to keep in mind is that releases conducted by the NiFi community, or
other ASF communities, are source releases [1].  While releases often times provide binaries
and assemblies, these are only for convenience and part of the formal release process.  These
guidelines are provided in full at [2].

response.  Do you find the issues you are typically trying to get fixes for mostly pertaining
to extensions (processors, controller services, etc)?

to just download the latest nar from master.
