+# Yetus Precommit
+
+The Yetus Precommit Patch Tester allows projects to codify their patch acceptance criteria and then evaluate incoming contributions prior to review by a committer.
+
+* Take a quick look at [our glossary of terms](precommit-glossary) to ensure you are familiar with the ASF and Maven jargon we'll use as terminology specific to this project.
+* For an overview of Yetus' philosophy on testing contributions and how evaluation is performed, see our [overview](precommit-architecture).
+* To get started on your project, including an explanation of what we'll expect in a runtime environment and what optional utilities we'll leverage, read through the [basic usage guide](precommit-basic).
+* If your project has advanced requirements such as module relationships not expressed in Maven, special profiles, or a need on os-specific prerequisites not managed by Maven then you'll need to use our [advanced usage guide](precommit-advanced).
+
+There is also documentation on [build systems](precommit-buildtools), [bug systems](precommit-bugsystems) and [test formats](precommit-testformats).
+
+# Yetus Release Doc Maker
+
+The Release Documentation Maker allows projects to generate nicely formated Markdown Changelogs and Release Notes based upon JIRA. You can view that
+documenation [here](releasedocmaker).

+
+# Docker Support
+
+By default, test-patch runs in the same shell where it was launched.  It can alternatively use Docker to launch itself into a container.  This is particularly useful if running under a QA environment that does not provide all the necessary binaries. For example, if the patch requires a newer version of Java.
+
+The `--docker` parameter tells test-patch to run in Docker mode. The `--dockerfile` parameter allows one to provide a custom Dockerfile. The Dockerfile should contain all of the necessary binaries and tooling needed to run the test.  However be aware that test-patch will copy this file and append its necessary hooks to re-launch itself prior to executing docker.
+
+NOTE: If you are using Boot2Docker, you must use directories under /Users (OSX) or C:\Users (Windows) as the base and patchprocess directories (specified by the --basedir and --patch-dir options respectively), because automatically mountable directories are limited to them. See [the Docker documentation](https://docs.docker.com/userguide/dockervolumes/#mount-a-host-directory-as-a-data-volume).
+
+Dockerfile images will be named with a test-patch prefix and suffix with either a date or a git commit hash. By using this information, test-patch will automatically manage broken/stale container images that are hanging around if it is run in --jenkins mode.  In this way, if Docker fails to build the image, the disk space should eventually be cleaned and returned back to the system.
+
+
+# Plug-ins
+
+test-patch allows one to add to its basic feature set via plug-ins.  There is a directory called test-patch.d off of the directory where test-patch.sh lives.  Inside this directory one may place some bash shell fragments that, if setup with proper functions, will allow for test-patch to call it as necessary.  Different plug-ins have specific functions for that particular functionality.  In this document, the common functions available to all/most plug-ins are covered.  Test plugins are covered below. See other documentation for pertinent information for the other plug-in types.
+
+## Common Plug-in Functions
+
+Every plug-in must have one line in order to be recognized, usually an 'add' statement.  Test plug-ins, for example, have this statement:
+
+```bash
+add_test_type <pluginname>
+```
+
+This function call registers the `pluginname` so that test-patch knows that it exists.  Plug-in names must be unique across all the different plug-in types.  Additionally, the 'all' plug-in is reserved.  The `pluginname` also acts as the key to the custom functions that you can define. For example:
+
+```bash
+function pluginname_filefilter
+```
+
+defines the filefilter for the `pluginname` plug-in.
+
+Similarly, there are other functions that may be defined during the test-patch run:
+
+    HINT: It is recommended to make the pluginname relatively small, 10 characters at the most.  Otherwise, the ASCII output table may be skewed.
+
+* pluginname\_initialize
+    - After argument parsing and prior to any other work, the initialize step allows a plug-in to do any precursor work, set internal defaults, etc.
+
+* pluginname\_usage
+    - executed when the help message is displayed. This is used to display the plug-in specific options for the user.
+
+* pluginname\_parse\_args
+    - executed prior to any other above functions except for pluginname\_usage. This is useful for parsing the arguments passed from the user and setting up the execution environment.
+
+* pluginname\_precheck
+    - executed prior to the patch being applied but after the git repository is setup.  Returning a fail status here will exit test-patch.
+
+* pluginname\_precompile
+    - executed prior to the compilation part of the lifecycle. This is useful for doing setup work required by the compilation process.
+
+* pluginname\_compile
+    - executed immediately after the actual compilation. This is step is intended to be used to verify the results and add extra checking of the compile phase and it's stdout/stderr.
+
+* pluginname\_postcompile
+    - This step happens after the compile phase.
+
+* pluginname\_rebuild
+    - Any non-unit tests that require the source to be rebuilt in a destructive way should be run here.
+
+
+## Plug-in Importation
+
+Plug-ins are imported from several key directories:
+
+* core.d is an internal-to-Yetus directory that first loads the basic Yetus library, followed by the common routines used by all of the precommit shell code.  This order is dictated by prefixing the plug-in files with a number.  Other files in this directory are loaded in shell collated order.
+
+* personality contains bundled personalities for various projects.  These will be imported individually based upon either a project name or if specifically identified with the `--personality` flag.
+
+* test-patch.d contains all of the optional, bundled plug-ins.  These are imported last and in shell collated order.
+
+If the `--skip-system-plugins` flag is passed, then only core.d is imported.
+
+## Test Plug-ins
+
+Plug-ins geared towards independent tests are registed via:
+
+
+```bash
+add_test_type <pluginname>
+```
+
++ pluginname\_filefilter
+    - executed while determine which files trigger which tests.  This function should use `add_test pluginname` to add the plug-in to the test list.
+
+* pluginname\_tests
+    - executed after the unit tests have completed.
+
+
+# Personalities
+
+## Configuring for Other Projects
+
+It is impossible for any general framework to be predictive about what types of special rules any given project may have, especially when it comes to ordering and Maven profiles.  In order to direct test-patch to do the correct action, a project `personality` should be added that enacts these custom rules.
+
+A personality consists of two functions. One that determines which test types to run and another that allows a project to dictate ordering rules, flags, and profiles on a per-module, per-test run.
+
+There can be only **one** of each personality function defined.
+
+## Global Definitions
+
+Globals for personalities should be defined in the `personality_globals` function.  This function is called *after* the other plug-ins have been imported.  This allows one to configure any settings for plug-ins that have been imported safely:
+
+```bash
+funciton personality_globals
+{
+  PATCH_BRANCH_DEFAULT=master
+  GITHUB_REPO="apache/yetus"
+}
+```
+
+## Test Determination
+
+The `personality_file_tests` function determines which tests to turn on based upon the file name.  It is relatively simple.  For example, to turn on a full suite of tests for Java files:
+
+```bash
+function personality_file_tests
+{
+  local filename=$1
+
+  if [[ ${filename} =~ \.java$ ]]; then
+    add_test findbugs
+    add_test javac
+    add_test javadoc
+    add_test mvninstall
+    add_test unit
+  fi
+
+}
+```
+
+The `add_test` function is used to activate the standard tests.  Additional plug-ins (such as checkstyle), will get queried on their own.
+
+## Module & Profile Determination
+
+Once the tests are determined, it is now time to pick which [modules](precommit-glossary.md#genericoutside-definitions) should get used.  That's the job of the `personality_modules` function.
+
+```bash
+function personality_modules
+{
+
+    clear_personality_queue
+
+...
+
+    personality_enqueue_module <module> <flags>
+
+}
+```
+
+It takes exactly two parameters `repostatus` and `testtype`.
+
+The `repostatus` parameter tells the `personality` function exactly what state the source repository is in.  It can only be in one of two states:  `branch` or `patch`.  `branch` means the patch has not been applied.  The `patch` state is after the patch has been applied.
+
+The `testtype` state tells the personality exactly which test is about to be executed.
+
+In order to communicate back to test-patch, there are two functions for the personality to use.
+
+The first is `clear_personality_queue`. This removes the previous test's configuration so that a new module queue may be built. Custom `personality_modules` will almost always want to do this as the first action.
+
+The second is `personality_enqueue_module`.  This function takes two parameters.  The first parameter is the name of the module to add to this test's queue.  The second parameter is an option list of additional flags to pass to Maven when processing it. `personality_enqueue_module` may be called as many times as necessary for your project.
+
+    NOTE: A module name of . signifies the root of the repository.
+
+For example, let's say your project uses a special configuration to skip unit tests (-DskipTests).  Running unit tests during a javadoc build isn't very useful and wastes a lot of time. We can write a simple personality check to disable the unit tests:
+
+```bash
+function personality_modules
+{
+    local repostatus=$1
+    local testtype=$2
+
+    if [[ ${testtype} == 'javadoc' ]]; then
+        personality_enqueue_module . -DskipTests
+        return
+    fi
+    ...
+
+```
+
+This function will tell test-patch that when the javadoc test is being run, do the documentation build at the base of the source repository and make sure the -DskipTests flag is passed to our build tool.
+
+## Enabling Plug-ins
+
+Personalities can set the base list of plug-ins to enable and disable for their project via the `personality_plugins` function. Just call it with the same pattern as the `--plugins` command line option:
+
+```bash
+personality_plugins "all,-checkstyle,-findbugs,-asflicense"
+```
+
+This list is used if the user does not provide a list of plug-ins.
+
+# Important Variables
+
+There are a handful of extremely important system variables that make life easier for personality and plug-in writers.  Other variables may be provided by individual plug-ins.  Check their development documentation for more information.
+
+* BUILD\_NATIVE will be set to true if the system has requested that non-JVM-based code be built (e.g., JNI or other compiled C code). Under Jenkins, this is always true.
+
+* BUILDTOOL specifies which tool is currently being used to drive compilation.  Additionally, many build tools define xyz\_ARGS to pass on to the build tool command line. (e.g., MAVEN\_ARGS if maven is in use).  Projects may set this in their personality.  NOTE: today, only one build tool at a time is supported.  This may change in the future.
+
+* CHANGED\_FILES is a list of all files that appear to be added, deleted, or modified in the patch.
+
+* CHANGED\_MODULES is a list of all modules that house all of the CHANGED\_FILES.  Be aware that the root of the source tree is reported as '.'.
+
+* GITHUB\_REPO is to help test-patch when talking to Github.  If test-patch is given just a number on the command line, it will default to using this repo to determine the pull request.
+
+* HOW\_TO\_CONTRIBUTE should be a URL that points to a project's on-boarding documentation for new users. Currently, it is used to suggest a review of patch naming guidelines. Since this should be project specific information, it is useful to set in a project's personality.
+
+* JIRA\_ISSUE\_RE is to help test-patch when talking to JIRA.  It helps determine if the given project is appropriate for the given JIRA issue.
+
+* MODULE and other MODULE\_\* are arrays that contain which modules, the status, etc, to be operated upon. These should be treated as read-only by plug-ins.
+
+* PATCH\_BRANCH\_DEFAULT is the name of the branch in the git repo that is considered the master.  This is useful to set in personalities.
+
+* PATCH\_DIR is the name of the temporary directory that houses test-patch artifacts (such as logs and the patch file itself)
+
+* TEST\_PARALLEL if parallel unit tests have been requested. Project personalities are responsible for actually enabling or ignoring the request. TEST\_THREADS is the number of threads that have been requested to run in parallel.

+
+# Some Philosophy
+
+* Everyone's time is valuable.  The quicker contributors can get feedback and iterate, the more likely and faster their contribution will get checked in.  A committer should be able to focus on the core issues of a contribution rather than details that can be determined automatically.
+
+* Precommit checks should be fast.  There is no value in testing parts of the source tree that are not immediately impacted by a change.  Unit testing is the target. They are not a replacement for full builds or integration tests.
+
+* Many open source projects have a desire to have this capability.  Why not generalize a solution?
+
+* In many build systems (especially with maven), a modular design has been picked.  Why not leverage that design to make checks faster?
+
+* Projects that use the same language will, with a high degree of certainty, benefit from the same types of checks.
+
+* Portability matters.  Tooling should be as operating system and language agnostic as possible.
+
+# Phases
+
+test-patch works effectively under several different phases:
+
+## Initialize
+
+This is where test-patch configures and validates the environment.  Some things done in this phase:
+
+* Defaults
+* Parameter handling
+* Importing plug-ins and personalities
+* Docker container launching
+* Re-exec support
+* Patch file downloading
+* git repository management (fresh pull, branch switching, etc)
+
+## Precheck
+
+Checks done here are *fatal*.
+
+This acts as a verification of all of the setup parts and is the final place to short-cut the full test cycle.  The most significant built-in check done here is verifying the patch file is a valid.
+
+## Patch File Tests
+
+Tests that only require the patch file are run.  Note that the repository is still from the initial checkout!
+
+## Compile Cycle (Branch)
+
+When compilation must be done, we follow these five steps:
+
+* The list of modules that require analysis is built.
+* A precompile step to set things up for the actual compile
+* The actual compile
+* A postcompile to do analysis on the output of that compile phase
+* A rebuild phase to run tests that require recompiles
+
+The first time this is done is with the pristine checkout.  This is called the "branch compile".  For this pass, this is where the 'before' work is handled.  Some things that typically get checked in this phase:
+
+* The first pass of files and modules that will get patched
+* Validation and information gathering of the source tree pre-patch
+* javadoc, scaladoc, etc
+
+## Distribution Clean
+
+This step is to wipe the repository clean back to a pristine state such that the previous cycle will not impact the next cycle.
+
+## Patch Application
+
+The patch gets applied.
+
+## Compile Cycle (Patch)
+
+Now that the patch has been applied the steps to compile we outlined in the compilation (branch) phase are repeated but with the patch applied. This is where a lot of 'after' checks are performed.
+
+## Unit Tests
+
+Since unit tests are generally the slowest part of the precommit process, they are run last.  At this point, all the prerequisites to running them should be in place and ready to go.
+
+## Reporting
+
+Finally, the results are reported to the screen and, optionally, to JIRA and/or whatever bug system has been configured.
+
+# Test Flow
+
+The basic workflow for many of the sub-items in individual phases are:
+
+1. print a header, so the end user knows that something is happening
+1. verify if the test is needed.  If so, continue on.  Otherwise, return success and let the next part of the phase execute.
+1. Ask the personality about what modules and what flags should get used
+1. Execute maven (or some other build tool) in the given modules with the given flags. Log the output and record the time and result code.
+1. Do any extra work as appropriate (diffs, counts, etc) and either accept the status and message given by the maven run or change the vote, message, log file, etc, based upon this extra work.
+1. Add the outcome(s) to the report generator
+
+As one can see, the modules list is one of the key inputs into what actually gets executed.  As a result, projects must full flexibility in either adding, modifying, or even removing modules from the test list.  If a personality removes the entire list of modules, then that test should just be ignored.

+As part of Apache Hadoop's commit process, all patches to the source base go through a precommit test that does some (relatively) light checking to make sure the proposed change does not break unit tests and/or passes some other prerequisites such as code formatting guidelines.  This is meant as a preliminary check for committers so that the basic patch is in a known state and for contributors to know if they have followed the project's guidelines.  This check, called test-patch, along with a helper program, called smart-apply-patch, may also be used by individual developers to verify a patch prior to sending to the Apache Hadoop QA systems.
+
+Other projects have adopted a similar methodology after seeing great success in the Apache Hadoop model.  Some have even gone as far as forking Apache Hadoop's precommit code and modifying it to meet their project's needs.
+
+One of the key facets of Apache Yetus is to bring together all of these forks under a common code base to help software development
+as a whole.
+
+
+# Pre-requisites
+
+test-patch and smart-apply-patch are written in bash for maximum portability.  As such, it mostly assumes the locations of commands to be in the file path. However, in many cases, this assumption may be overridden via command line options.
+
+For Solaris and Solaris-like operating systems, the default location for the POSIX binaries is in /usr/xpg4/bin and the default location for the GNU binaries is /usr/gnu/bin.
+
+## Base Requirements
+
+test-patch requires these installed components to execute:
+
+* A project with a supported build tool (ant, gradle, maven, ...)
+* git-based project (and git 1.7.3 or higher installed)
+* bash v3.2 or higher
+* GNU diff
+* GNU patch
+* POSIX awk
+* POSIX grep
+* POSIX sed
+* [curl](http://curl.haxx.se/) command
+* file command
+
+## Optional Requirements
+
+Features are plug-in based and enabled either individually or collectively on the command line. From there, these are activated based upon tool availability, the languages being tested, etc.  The external dependencies of plug-ins may have different licensing requirements than Apache Yetus.
+
+Bug Systems:
+
+* [GitHub](https://github.com/)-based issue tracking
+* [JIRA](https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira)-based issue tracking
+
+Unit Test Formats:
+
+* [JUnit](http://junit.org/)
+* [TAP](https://testanything.org/)
+
+Language Support, Licensing, and more:
+
+* [Apache Creadur Rat](http://creadur.apache.org/rat/) entries in build system
+* [checkstyle](http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/) entries in build system (ant and maven only)
+* [FindBugs](http://findbugs.sourceforge.net/) entries in build system and 3.x executables
+* [Perl::Critic](http://perlcritic.com/) installed
+* [pylint](http://www.pylint.org/) installed
+* [rubocop](http://batsov.com/rubocop/) installed
+* [ruby-lint](https://github.com/YorickPeterse/ruby-lint) installed
+* [shellcheck](https://github.com/koalaman/shellcheck) installed, preferably 0.3.6 or higher
+
+# Basic Usage
+
+The first step for a successful deployment is determining which features/plug-ins to enable:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --list-plugins
+```
+
+This option will list all of the available plug-ins that are installed in the default location.  From this list, the specific plug-ins can be enabled:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --plugins="ant,maven,shellcheck,xml" <other options>
+```
+
+As a short-cut, every plug-in may be enabled via the special 'all' type:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --plugins="all" <other options>
+```
+
+`--plugins` also allows some basic "arithmetic":
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --plugins="all,-checkstyle,-findbugs" <other options>
+```
+
+This will enable all plug-ins for potential usage, except for checkstyle and findbugs.
+
+**NOTE: The examples in this section will assume that the necessary `--plugins` option has been set on the command line as appropriate for your particular installation.**
+
+This command will execute basic patch testing against a patch file stored in "filename":
+
+```bash
+$ cd <your repo>
+$ test-patch.sh --dirty-workspace --project=projectname <filename>
+```
+
+The `--dirty-workspace` flag tells test-patch that the repository is not clean and it is ok to continue.  By default, unit tests are not run since they may take a significant amount of time.
+
+To do turn them on, we need to provide the --run-tests option:
+
+
+```bash
+$ cd <your repo>
+$ test-patch.sh --dirty-workspace --run-tests <filename>
+```
+
+This is the same command, but now runs the unit tests.
+
+A typical configuration is to have two repositories.  One with the code you are working on and another, clean repository.  This means you can:
+
+```bash
+$ cd <workrepo>
+$ git diff master > /tmp/patchfile
+$ cd ../<testrepo>
+$ test-patch.sh --basedir=<testrepo> --resetrepo /tmp/patchfile
+```
+
+We used two new options here.  --basedir sets the location of the repository to use for testing.  --resetrepo tells test patch that it can go into **destructive** mode.  Destructive mode will wipe out any changes made to that repository, so use it with care!
+
+After the tests have run, there is a directory that contains all of the test-patch related artifacts.  This is generally referred to as the patchprocess directory.  By default, test-patch tries to make something off of /tmp to contain this content.  Using the `--patch-dir` option, one can specify exactly which directory to use.  This is helpful for automated precommit testing so that Jenkins or other automated workflow system knows where to look to gather up the output.
+
+For example:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --jenkins --patch-dir=${WORKSPACE}/patchprocess --basedir=${WORKSPACE}/source ${WORKSPACE}/patchfile
+```
+
+... will trigger test-patch to run in fully automated Jenkins mode, using ${WORKSPACE}/patchprocess as its scratch space, ${WORKSPACE}/source as the source repository, and ${WORKSPACE}/patchfile as the name of the patch to test against.
+
+# Build Tool
+
+Out of the box, test-patch is built to use maven.  But what if the project is built using something else, such as ant?
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) --build-tool=ant
+```
+
+will tell test-patch to use ant instead of maven to drive the project.
+
+# Providing Patch Files
+
+## JIRA
+
+It is a fairly common practice within the Apache community to use Apache's JIRA instance to store potential patches.  As a result, test-patch supports providing just a JIRA issue number.  test-patch will find the *last* attachment, download it, then process it.
+
+For example:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) HADOOP-9905
+```
+
+... will process the patch file associated with this JIRA issue.
+
+If the Apache JIRA system is not in use, then override options may be provided on the command line to point to a different JIRA instance.
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --jira-issue-re='^PROJECT-[0-9]+$' --jira-base-url='https://example.com/jira' PROJECT-90
+```
+
+... will process the patch file attached to PROJECT-90 on the JIRA instance located on the example.com server.
+
+## GITHUB
+
+test-patch has some basic support for Github.  test-patch supports many forms of providing pull requests to work on:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh --github-repo=apache/pig 99
+```
+
+or
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh https://github.com/apache/pig/pulls/99
+```
+
+or
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh https://github.com/apache/pig/pulls/99.patch
+```
+
+... will process PR #99 on the apache/pig repo.
+
+## Generic URLs
+
+Luckily, test-patch supports  provide ways to provide unified diffs via URLs.
+
+For example:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) https://example.com/webserver/file.patch
+```
+
+... will download and process the file.patch from the example.com webserver.
+
+# Project-specific Capabilities
+
+Due to the extensible nature of the system, test-patch allows for projects to define project-specific rules which we call personalities.  (How to build those rules is covered elsewhere.) There are two ways to specify which personality to use:
+
+## Direct Method
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) --personality=(filename)
+```
+
+This tells test-patch to use the personality in the given file.
+
+## Project Method
+
+However, test-patch can detect if it is a personality that is in its "personality" directory based upon the project name:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) --project=(project)
+```
+
+# MultiJDK
+
+For many projects, it is useful to test Java code against multiple versions of JDKs at the same time.  test-patch can do this with the --multijdkdirs option:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) --multijdkdirs="/j/d/k/1,/j/d/k/2"
+```
+
+Not all Java tests support this mode, but those that do will now run their tests with all of the given versions of Java consecutively (e.g., javac--the Java compliation test).  Tests that do not support MultiJDK mode (e.g., checkstyle, mvn install) will use JAVA\_HOME.
+
+NOTE: JAVA\_HOME is always appended to the list of JDKs in MultiJDK mode.  If JAVA\_HOME is in the list, it will be moved to the end.
+
+# Docker
+
+test-patch also has a mode to utilize Docker:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) --docker
+```
+
+This will do some preliminary setup and then re-execute itself inside a Docker container.  For more information on how to provide a custom Dockerfile, see the advanced guide.
+
+## In Closing
+
+test-patch has many other features and command line options for the basic user.  Many of these are self-explanatory.  To see the list of options, run test-patch.sh without any options or with --help.

+
+Bug System Support
+==================
+
+test-patch has the ability to support multiple bug systems.  Bug tools have some extra hooks to fetch patches, line-level reporting, and posting a final report. Every bug system plug-in must have one line in order to be recognized:
+
+```bash
+add_bugsystem <pluginname>
+```
+
+* pluginname\_locate\_patch
+
+    - Given input from the user, download the patch if possible.
+
+* pluginname\_determine\_branch
+
+    - Using any heuristics available, return the branch to process, if possible.
+
+* pluginname\_determine\_issue
+
+    - Using any heuristics available, set the issue, bug number, etc, for this bug system, if possible.  This is typically used to fill in supplementary information in the final output table.
+
+* pluginname\_write\_comment
+
+    - Given text input, write this output to the bug system as a comment.  NOTE: It is the bug system's responsibility to format appropriately.
+
+* pluginname\_linecomments
+
+    - This function allows for the system to write specific comments on specific lines if the bug system supports code review comments.
+
+* pluginname\_finalreport
+
+    - Write the final result table to the bug system.
+
+# Bugzilla Specific
+
+Currently, Bugzilla support is read-only.  To use it, the Bug ID must be preferenced with 'BZ:'.  For example:
+
+```bash
+$ test-patch.sh (other options) BZ:4
+```
+
+... will pull down Bugzilla ID #4.
+
+Using the `--bugzilla-base-url` on the command line or BUGZILLA\_BASE\_URL in a project's personality will define the location of the Bugzilla instance.  By default, it is https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla .
+
+# GitHub Specific
+
+GitHub supports the full range of functionality, including putting comments on individual lines.  Be aware, however, that test-patch.sh will require that GitHub PRs be fully rebased (i.e., a single commit) in many circumstances.
+
+By default, the GitHub plug-in assumes that https://github.com is the base URL for GitHub.  Enterprise users may override this with the `--github-base-url` for the normal web user interface and `--github-api-url` for the API URL.  Personalities may use GITHUB\_API\_URL and GITHUB\_BASE\_URL.
+
+The specific repository on GitHub is defined with either `--github-repo` on the command line or GITHUB\_REPO in a personality.  It should take the form of "user/repo".
+
+In order to comment on issues or, depending upon the security setup of the repo, authentication credentials.  The GitHub plug-in supports two types:
+
+  * Token-based:  `--github-token` or GITHUB\_TOKEN
+
+  * Username/password: `--github-user`/ GITHUB\_USER , `--github-password` / GITHUB\_PASSWD
+
+Pull requests that are made off of a specific branch will switch the test repo to that branch, if permitted.  If the pull request references a JIRA issue that matches the given JIRA issue regexp in the Subject, the JIRA plug-in will also be invoked as needed.
+
+# JIRA Specific
+
+JIRA support allows both patch downloads and summary writes.  It also supports branch detection-based upon the name of the attached patch file.
+
+JIRA issues are invoked by matching the command line option to a specific regular expression as given by the `--jira-issue-re` option or via the JIRA\_ISSUE\_RE personality variable.  By default, the plug-in uses https://issues.apache.org/jira as the JIRA instance to use.  However that may be overwritten via the `--jira-base-url` option or personalities may define via JIRA\_URL.
+
+In order to write information on the issue, JIRA requires username and password authentication using the `--jira-user`/`--jira-password` options or the JIRA\_USER and JIRA\_PASSWORD variables in a personality.

+Build Tool Support
+===================
+
+test-patch has the ability to support multiple build tools.  Build tool plug-ins have some extra hooks to do source and object maintenance at key points. Every build tool plug-in must have one line in order to be recognized:
+
+```bash
+add_build_tool <pluginname>
+```
+
+# Global Variables
+
+* BUILDTOOLCWD
+
+    - If the build tool does not always run from the ${BASEDIR} and instead needs to change the current working directory to work on a specific module, then set this to true.  The default is false.
+
+* UNSUPPORTED\_TEST
+
+    - If pluginname\_modules\_worker is given a test type that is not supported by the build system, set UNSUPPORTED\_TEST=true.  If it is supported, set UNSUPPORTED\_TEST=false.
+
+For example, the gradle build tool does not have a standard way to execute checkstyle. So when checkstyle is requested, gradle\_modules\_worker sets UNSUPPORTED\_TEST to true and returns out of the routine.
+
+# Required Functions
+
+* pluginname\_buildfile
+
+    - This should be an echo of the file that controls the build system.  This is used for module determination. If the build system wishes to disable module determination, it should echo with no args.
+
+* pluginname\_executor
+
+    - This should be an echo of how to run the build tool, any extra arguments, etc.
+
+* pluginname\_modules\_worker
+
+    - Input is the branch and the test being run.  This should call `modules_workers` with the generic parts to run that test on the build system.  For example, if it is convention to use 'test' to trigger 'unit' tests, then `module_workers` should be called with 'test' appended onto its normal parameters.
+
+* pluginname\_builtin_personality\_modules
+
+    - Default method to determine how to enqueue modules for processing.  Note that personalities may override this function.
+
+* pluginname\_builtin_personality\_file\_tests
+
+    - Default method to determine which tests to trigger.  Note that personalities may override this function.
+
+# Optional Functions
+
+* pluginname\_postapply\_install
+
+    - After the install step, this allows the build tool plug-in to do extra work.
+
+* pluginname\_parse\_args
+
+    - executed prior to any other above functions except for pluginname\_usage. This is useful for parsing the arguments passed from the user and setting up the execution environment.
+
+* pluginname\_initialize
+
+    - After argument parsing and prior to any other work, the initialize step allows a plug-in to do any precursor work, set internal defaults, etc.
+
+* pluginname\_count\_(test)\_probs
+
+    - Certain language test plug-ins require assistance from the build tool to count problems in the compile log due to some tools having custom handling for those languages.  The test plug-in name should be in the (test) part of the function name.
+
+* pluginname\_docker\_support
+
+    - If this build tool requires extra settings on the `docker run` command line, this function should be defined and write those options into a file called `${PATCH_DIR}/buildtool-docker-params.txt`.  This is particularly useful for things like mounting volumes for repository caches.
+
+       **WARNING**: Be aware that directories that do not exist MAY be created by root by Docker itself under certain conditions.  It is HIGHLY recommend that `pluginname_initialize` be used to create the necessary directories prior to be used in the `docker run` command.
+
+# Ant Specific
+
+## Command Arguments
+
+test-patch always passes -noinput to Ant.  This forces ant to be non-interactive.
+
+## Docker Mode
+
+In Docker mode, the `${HOME}/.ivy2` directory is shared amongst all invocations.
+
+# Gradle Specific
+
+The gradle plug-in always rebuilds the gradlew file and uses gradlew as the method to execute commands.
+
+In Docker mode, the `${HOME}/.gradle` directory is shared amongst all invocations.
+
+# Maven Specific
+
+## Command Arguments
+
+test-patch always passes --batch-mode to maven to force it into non-interactive mode.  Additionally, some tests will also force -fae in order to get all of messages/errors during that mode. Some tests are executed with -DskipTests.  Additional arguments should be handled via the personality.
+
+##  Per-instance Repositories
+
+Under many common configurations, maven (as of 3.3.3 and lower) may not properly handle being executed by multiple processes simultaneously, especially given that some tests require the `mvn install` command to be used.
+
+To assist, `test-patch` supports a `--mvn-custom-repo` option to set the `-Dmaven.repo.local` value to a per-instance repository directory keyed to the project and branch being used for the test.  If the `--jenkins` flag is also passed, the instance will be tied to the Jenkins `${EXECUTOR_NUMBER}` value.  Otherwise, the instance value will be randomly generated via `${RANDOM}`.  If the repository has not been used in 30 days, it will be automatically deleted when any test run for that project (regardless of branch!).
+
+By default, `test-patch` uses `${HOME}/yetus-m2` as the base directory to store these custom maven repositories.  That location may be changed via the `--mvn-custom-repos-dir` option.
+
+The location of the `settings.xml` may be changed via the `--mvn-settings` option.
+
+## Docker Mode
+
+In Docker mode, `${HOME}/.m2` is shared amongst all invocations.  If `--mvn-custom-repos` is used, all of `--mvn-custom-repos-dir` is shared with all invocations.  The per-instance directory will be calculated and configured after Docker has launched.
+
+## Test Profile
+
+By default, test-patch will pass -Ptest-patch to Maven. This will allow you to configure special actions that should only happen when running underneath test-patch.
+
+## Custom Maven Tests
+
+* Maven will trigger a maven install as part of the precompile.
+* Maven will test eclipse integration as part of the postcompile.
+* If src/site is modified, maven site tests are executed.

+smart-apply-patch
+=================
+
+`smart-apply-patch` is a command to help apply patches easily.  It uses the same plug-ins and many of the same options as test-patch.  This means that it can, for example, fetch patches from JIRA and apply them to a local source tree.
+
+# Usage
+
+Its simpliest form is used when a patch is stored in a local file:
+
+```bash
+$ smart-apply-patch patch
+```
+
+This will cause the command to run through various ways to verify and then apply the patch to the current repo, including deducing a patch level.
+
+Perhaps you just want to see if the patch even applies without changing your local repo.  The `--dry-run` option will just test for applicability:
+
+```bash
+$ smart-apply-patch --dry-run patch
+```
+
+For committers of projects, there is a special mode:
+
+```bash
+$ smart-apply-patch --committer patch
+```
+
+that in addition to applying the patch will also attempt to:
+
+* use `--whitespace=fix` mode
+* add all newly created files in the repo
+* use `--signoff` and commit the change via git-am

+Test Format Support
+==================
+
+test-patch has the ability to support multiple test formats. Test formats have some extra hooks to process the output of test tools and write the results to some tables. Every test format plug-in must have one line in order to be recognized:
+
+```bash
+add_test_format <pluginname>
+```
+
+* pluginname\_process\_tests
+
+    - Given a path to the log file and tested module name, parse that file and store the test result into global variables and/or files.
+
+* pluginname\_finalize\_results
+
+    - Using the results stored by pluginname\_process\_tests, write them to the test result table and/or the footer table for reporting.

+
+# Purpose
+
+Building changelog information in a form that is human digestible but still containing as much useful information is difficult.  Many attempts over the years have resulted in a variety of methods that projects use to solve this problem:
+
+* JIRA-generated release notes from the "Release Notes" button
+* Manually modified CHANGES file
+* Processing git log information
+
+All of these methods have their pros and cons.  Some have issues with accuracy.  Some have issues with lack of details. None of these methods seem to cover all of the needs of many projects and are full of potential pitfalls.
+
+In order to solve these problems, releasedocmaker was written to automatically generate a changelog and release notes by querying Apache's JIRA instance.
+
+# Basic Usage
+
+Minimally, the name of the JIRA project and a version registered in JIRA must be provided:
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project (project) --version (version)
+```
+
+This will query Apache JIRA, generating two files in a directory named after the given version in an extended markdown format which can be processed by both mvn site and GitHub.
+
+* CHANGES.(version).md
+
+This is similar to the JIRA "Release Notes" button but is in tabular format and includes the priority, component, reporter, and contributor fields.  It also highlights Incompatible Changes so that readers know what to look out for when upgrading. The top of the file also includes the date that the version was marked as released in JIRA.
+
+
+* RELEASENOTES.(version).md
+
+If your JIRA project supports the release note field, this will contain any JIRA mentioned in the CHANGES log that is either an incompatible change or has a release note associated with it.  If your JIRA project does not support the release notes field, this will be the description field.
+
+For example, to build the release documentation for HBase v1.2.0...
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project HBASE --version 1.2.0
+```
+
+... will create a 1.2.0 directory and inside that directory will be CHANGES.1.2.0.md and RELEASENOTES.1.2.0.md .
+
+By default, release notes are expected to be in plain text.  However, you can write them in markdown if you include a header at the top of your release note:
+
+```xml
+<!-- markdown -->
+remaining text
+```
+
+# Changing the Header
+
+By default, it will use a header that matches the project name.  But that is kind of ugly and the case may be wrong.  Luckily, the title can be changed:
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project HBASE --version 1.2.0 --projecttitle "Apache HBase"
+```
+
+Now instead of "HBASE", it will use "Apache HBASE" for some titles and headers.
+
+# Multiple Versions
+
+The script can also generate multiple versions at once, by
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project HBASE --version 1.0.0 --version 1.2.0
+```
+
+This will create the files for versions 1.0.0 and versions 1.2.0 in their own directories.
+
+But what if the version numbers are not known?  releasedocmaker can also generate version data based upon ranges:
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project HBASE --version 1.0.0 --version 1.2.0 --range
+```
+
+In this form, releasedocmaker will query JIRA, discover all versions that alphabetically appear to be between 1.0.0 and 1.2.0, inclusive, and generate all of the relative release documents.  This is especially useful when bootstrapping an existing project.
+
+# Unreleased Dates
+
+For released versions, releasedocmaker will pull the date of the release from JIRA.  However, for unreleased versions it marks the release as "Unreleased". This can be inconvenient when actually building a release and wanting to include it inside the source package.
+
+The --usetoday option can be used to signify that instead of using Unreleased, releasedocmaker should use today's date.
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project HBASE --version 1.0.0 --usetoday
+```
+
+After using this option and release, don't forget to change JIRA's release date to match!
+
+# Lint Mode
+
+In order to ensure proper formatting while using mvn site, releasedocmaker puts in periods (.) for fields that are empty or unassigned.  This can be unsightly and not proper for any given project.  There are also other things, such as missing release notes for incompatible changes, that are less than desirable.
+
+In order to help release managers from having to scan through potentially large documents, releasedocmaker features a lint mode, triggered via --lint:
+
+```bash
+$ releasedocmaker.py --project HBASE --version 1.0.0 --lint
+```
+
+This will do the normal JIRA querying, looking for items it considers problematic.  It will print the information to the screen and then exit with either success or failure, depending upon if any issues were discovered.
+
+# Index Mode
+
+There is basic support for an autoindexer.  It will create two files that contain links to all directories that have a major.minor.micro-style version numbering system, where all fields are numeric.
+
+  * index.md: a file suitable for conversion to HTML via mvn site
+  * README.md: a file suitable for display on Github and other Markdown rendering websites

-# Yetus Precommit
-
-The Yetus Precommit Patch Tester allows projects to codify their patch acceptance criteria and then evaluate incoming contributions prior to review by a committer.
-
-* Take a quick look at [our glossary of terms](precommit-glossary) to ensure you are familiar with the ASF and Maven jargon we'll use as terminology specific to this project.
-* For an overview of Yetus' philosophy on testing contributions and how evaluation is performed, see our [overview](precommit-architecture).
-* To get started on your project, including an explanation of what we'll expect in a runtime environment and what optional utilities we'll leverage, read through the [basic usage guide](precommit-basic).
-* If your project has advanced requirements such as module relationships not expressed in Maven, special profiles, or a need on os-specific prerequisites not managed by Maven then you'll need to use our [advanced usage guide](precommit-advanced).
-
-There is also documentation on [build systems](precommit-buildtools), [bug systems](precommit-bugsystems) and [test formats](precommit-testformats).

-* [Docker Support](#Docker_Support)
-* [Plug-ins](#Plug-ins)
-* [Personalities](#Personalities)
-* [Important Variables](#Important_Variables)
-
-# Docker Support
-
-By default, test-patch runs in the same shell where it was launched.  It can alternatively use Docker to launch itself into a container.  This is particularly useful if running under a QA environment that does not provide all the necessary binaries. For example, if the patch requires a newer version of Java.
-
-The `--docker` parameter tells test-patch to run in Docker mode. The `--dockerfile` parameter allows one to provide a custom Dockerfile. The Dockerfile should contain all of the necessary binaries and tooling needed to run the test.  However be aware that test-patch will copy this file and append its necessary hooks to re-launch itself prior to executing docker.
-
-NOTE: If you are using Boot2Docker, you must use directories under /Users (OSX) or C:\Users (Windows) as the base and patchprocess directories (specified by the --basedir and --patch-dir options respectively), because automatically mountable directories are limited to them. See [the Docker documentation](https://docs.docker.com/userguide/dockervolumes/#mount-a-host-directory-as-a-data-volume).
-
-Dockerfile images will be named with a test-patch prefix and suffix with either a date or a git commit hash. By using this information, test-patch will automatically manage broken/stale container images that are hanging around if it is run in --jenkins mode.  In this way, if Docker fails to build the image, the disk space should eventually be cleaned and returned back to the system.
-
-
-# Plug-ins
-
-test-patch allows one to add to its basic feature set via plug-ins.  There is a directory called test-patch.d off of the directory where test-patch.sh lives.  Inside this directory one may place some bash shell fragments that, if setup with proper functions, will allow for test-patch to call it as necessary.  Different plug-ins have specific functions for that particular functionality.  In this document, the common functions available to all/most plug-ins are covered.  Test plugins are covered below. See other documentation for pertinent information for the other plug-in types.
-
-## Common Plug-in Functions
-
-Every plug-in must have one line in order to be recognized, usually an 'add' statement.  Test plug-ins, for example, have this statement:
-
-```bash
-add_test_type <pluginname>
-```
-
-This function call registers the `pluginname` so that test-patch knows that it exists.  Plug-in names must be unique across all the different plug-in types.  Additionally, the 'all' plug-in is reserved.  The `pluginname` also acts as the key to the custom functions that you can define. For example:
-
-```bash
-function pluginname_filefilter
-```
-
-defines the filefilter for the `pluginname` plug-in.
-
-Similarly, there are other functions that may be defined during the test-patch run:
-
-    HINT: It is recommended to make the pluginname relatively small, 10 characters at the most.  Otherwise, the ASCII output table may be skewed.
-
-* pluginname\_initialize
-    - After argument parsing and prior to any other work, the initialize step allows a plug-in to do any precursor work, set internal defaults, etc.
-
-* pluginname\_usage
-    - executed when the help message is displayed. This is used to display the plug-in specific options for the user.
-
-* pluginname\_parse\_args
-    - executed prior to any other above functions except for pluginname\_usage. This is useful for parsing the arguments passed from the user and setting up the execution environment.
-
-* pluginname\_precheck
-    - executed prior to the patch being applied but after the git repository is setup.  Returning a fail status here will exit test-patch.
-
-* pluginname\_precompile
-    - executed prior to the compilation part of the lifecycle. This is useful for doing setup work required by the compilation process.
-
-* pluginname\_compile
-    - executed immediately after the actual compilation. This is step is intended to be used to verify the results and add extra checking of the compile phase and it's stdout/stderr.
-
-* pluginname\_postcompile
-    - This step happens after the compile phase.
-
-* pluginname\_rebuild
-    - Any non-unit tests that require the source to be rebuilt in a destructive way should be run here.
-
-
-## Plug-in Importation
-
-Plug-ins are imported from several key directories:
-
-* core.d is an internal-to-Yetus directory that first loads the basic Yetus library, followed by the common routines used by all of the precommit shell code.  This order is dictated by prefixing the plug-in files with a number.  Other files in this directory are loaded in shell collated order.
-
-* personality contains bundled personalities for various projects.  These will be imported individually based upon either a project name or if specifically identified with the `--personality` flag.
-
-* test-patch.d contains all of the optional, bundled plug-ins.  These are imported last and in shell collated order.
-
-If the `--skip-system-plugins` flag is passed, then only core.d is imported.
-
-## Test Plug-ins
-
-Plug-ins geared towards independent tests are registed via:
-
-
-```bash
-add_test_type <pluginname>
-```
-
-+ pluginname\_filefilter
-    - executed while determine which files trigger which tests.  This function should use `add_test pluginname` to add the plug-in to the test list.
-
-* pluginname\_tests
-    - executed after the unit tests have completed.
-
-
-# Personalities
-
-## Configuring for Other Projects
-
-It is impossible for any general framework to be predictive about what types of special rules any given project may have, especially when it comes to ordering and Maven profiles.  In order to direct test-patch to do the correct action, a project `personality` should be added that enacts these custom rules.
-
-A personality consists of two functions. One that determines which test types to run and another that allows a project to dictate ordering rules, flags, and profiles on a per-module, per-test run.
-
-There can be only **one** of each personality function defined.
-
-## Global Definitions
-
-Globals for personalities should be defined in the `personality_globals` function.  This function is called *after* the other plug-ins have been imported.  This allows one to configure any settings for plug-ins that have been imported safely:
-
-```bash
-funciton personality_globals
-{
-  PATCH_BRANCH_DEFAULT=master
-  GITHUB_REPO="apache/yetus"
-}
-```
-
-## Test Determination
-
-The `personality_file_tests` function determines which tests to turn on based upon the file name.  It is relatively simple.  For example, to turn on a full suite of tests for Java files:
-
-```bash
-function personality_file_tests
-{
-  local filename=$1
-
-  if [[ ${filename} =~ \.java$ ]]; then
-    add_test findbugs
-    add_test javac
-    add_test javadoc
-    add_test mvninstall
-    add_test unit
-  fi
-
-}
-```
-
-The `add_test` function is used to activate the standard tests.  Additional plug-ins (such as checkstyle), will get queried on their own.
-
-## Module & Profile Determination
-
-Once the tests are determined, it is now time to pick which [modules](precommit-glossary.md#genericoutside-definitions) should get used.  That's the job of the `personality_modules` function.
-
-```bash
-function personality_modules
-{
-
-    clear_personality_queue
-
-...
-
-    personality_enqueue_module <module> <flags>
-
-}
-```
-
-It takes exactly two parameters `repostatus` and `testtype`.
-
-The `repostatus` parameter tells the `personality` function exactly what state the source repository is in.  It can only be in one of two states:  `branch` or `patch`.  `branch` means the patch has not been applied.  The `patch` state is after the patch has been applied.
-
-The `testtype` state tells the personality exactly which test is about to be executed.
-
-In order to communicate back to test-patch, there are two functions for the personality to use.
-
-The first is `clear_personality_queue`. This removes the previous test's configuration so that a new module queue may be built. Custom `personality_modules` will almost always want to do this as the first action.
-
-The second is `personality_enqueue_module`.  This function takes two parameters.  The first parameter is the name of the module to add to this test's queue.  The second parameter is an option list of additional flags to pass to Maven when processing it. `personality_enqueue_module` may be called as many times as necessary for your project.
-
-    NOTE: A module name of . signifies the root of the repository.
-
-For example, let's say your project uses a special configuration to skip unit tests (-DskipTests).  Running unit tests during a javadoc build isn't very useful and wastes a lot of time. We can write a simple personality check to disable the unit tests:
-
-```bash
-function personality_modules
-{
-    local repostatus=$1
-    local testtype=$2
-
-    if [[ ${testtype} == 'javadoc' ]]; then
-        personality_enqueue_module . -DskipTests
-        return
-    fi
-    ...
-
-```
-
-This function will tell test-patch that when the javadoc test is being run, do the documentation build at the base of the source repository and make sure the -DskipTests flag is passed to our build tool.
-
-## Enabling Plug-ins
-
-Personalities can set the base list of plug-ins to enable and disable for their project via the `personality_plugins` function. Just call it with the same pattern as the `--plugins` command line option:
-
-```bash
-personality_plugins "all,-checkstyle,-findbugs,-asflicense"
-```
-
-This list is used if the user does not provide a list of plug-ins.
-
-# Important Variables
-
-There are a handful of extremely important system variables that make life easier for personality and plug-in writers.  Other variables may be provided by individual plug-ins.  Check their development documentation for more information.
-
-* BUILD\_NATIVE will be set to true if the system has requested that non-JVM-based code be built (e.g., JNI or other compiled C code). Under Jenkins, this is always true.
-
-* BUILDTOOL specifies which tool is currently being used to drive compilation.  Additionally, many build tools define xyz\_ARGS to pass on to the build tool command line. (e.g., MAVEN\_ARGS if maven is in use).  Projects may set this in their personality.  NOTE: today, only one build tool at a time is supported.  This may change in the future.
-
-* CHANGED\_FILES is a list of all files that appear to be added, deleted, or modified in the patch.
-
-* CHANGED\_MODULES is a list of all modules that house all of the CHANGED\_FILES.  Be aware that the root of the source tree is reported as '.'.
-
-* GITHUB\_REPO is to help test-patch when talking to Github.  If test-patch is given just a number on the command line, it will default to using this repo to determine the pull request.
-
-* HOW\_TO\_CONTRIBUTE should be a URL that points to a project's on-boarding documentation for new users. Currently, it is used to suggest a review of patch naming guidelines. Since this should be project specific information, it is useful to set in a project's personality.
-
-* JIRA\_ISSUE\_RE is to help test-patch when talking to JIRA.  It helps determine if the given project is appropriate for the given JIRA issue.
-
-* MODULE and other MODULE\_\* are arrays that contain which modules, the status, etc, to be operated upon. These should be treated as read-only by plug-ins.
-
-* PATCH\_BRANCH\_DEFAULT is the name of the branch in the git repo that is considered the master.  This is useful to set in personalities.
-
-* PATCH\_DIR is the name of the temporary directory that houses test-patch artifacts (such as logs and the patch file itself)
-
-* TEST\_PARALLEL if parallel unit tests have been requested. Project personalities are responsible for actually enabling or ignoring the request. TEST\_THREADS is the number of threads that have been requested to run in parallel.

-# Some Philosophy
-
-* Everyone's time is valuable.  The quicker contributors can get feedback and iterate, the more likely and faster their contribution will get checked in.  A committer should be able to focus on the core issues of a contribution rather than details that can be determined automatically.
-
-* Precommit checks should be fast.  There is no value in testing parts of the source tree that are not immediately impacted by a change.  Unit testing is the target. They are not a replacement for full builds or integration tests.
-
-* Many open source projects have a desire to have this capability.  Why not generalize a solution?
-
-* In many build systems (especially with maven), a modular design has been picked.  Why not leverage that design to make checks faster?
-
-* Projects that use the same language will, with a high degree of certainty, benefit from the same types of checks.
-
-* Portability matters.  Tooling should be as operating system and language agnostic as possible.
-
-# Phases
-
-test-patch works effectively under several different phases:
-
-## Initialize
-
-This is where test-patch configures and validates the environment.  Some things done in this phase:
-
-* Defaults
-* Parameter handling
-* Importing plug-ins and personalities
-* Docker container launching
-* Re-exec support
-* Patch file downloading
-* git repository management (fresh pull, branch switching, etc)
-
-## Precheck
-
-Checks done here are *fatal*.
-
-This acts as a verification of all of the setup parts and is the final place to short-cut the full test cycle.  The most significant built-in check done here is verifying the patch file is a valid.
-
-## Patch File Tests
-
-Tests that only require the patch file are run.  Note that the repository is still from the initial checkout!
-
-## Compile Cycle (Branch)
-
-When compilation must be done, we follow these five steps:
-
-* The list of modules that require analysis is built.
-* A precompile step to set things up for the actual compile
-* The actual compile
-* A postcompile to do analysis on the output of that compile phase
-* A rebuild phase to run tests that require recompiles
-
-The first time this is done is with the pristine checkout.  This is called the "branch compile".  For this pass, this is where the 'before' work is handled.  Some things that typically get checked in this phase:
-
-* The first pass of files and modules that will get patched
-* Validation and information gathering of the source tree pre-patch
-* javadoc, scaladoc, etc
-
-## Distribution Clean
-
-This step is to wipe the repository clean back to a pristine state such that the previous cycle will not impact the next cycle.
-
-## Patch Application
-
-The patch gets applied.
-
-## Compile Cycle (Patch)
-
-Now that the patch has been applied the steps to compile we outlined in the compilation (branch) phase are repeated but with the patch applied. This is where a lot of 'after' checks are performed.
-
-## Unit Tests
-
-Since unit tests are generally the slowest part of the precommit process, they are run last.  At this point, all the prerequisites to running them should be in place and ready to go.
-
-## Reporting
-
-Finally, the results are reported to the screen and, optionally, to JIRA and/or whatever bug system has been configured.
-
-# Test Flow
-
-The basic workflow for many of the sub-items in individual phases are:
-
-1. print a header, so the end user knows that something is happening
-1. verify if the test is needed.  If so, continue on.  Otherwise, return success and let the next part of the phase execute.
-1. Ask the personality about what modules and what flags should get used
-1. Execute maven (or some other build tool) in the given modules with the given flags. Log the output and record the time and result code.
-1. Do any extra work as appropriate (diffs, counts, etc) and either accept the status and message given by the maven run or change the vote, message, log file, etc, based upon this extra work.
-1. Add the outcome(s) to the report generator
-
-As one can see, the modules list is one of the key inputs into what actually gets executed.  As a result, projects must full flexibility in either adding, modifying, or even removing modules from the test list.  If a personality removes the entire list of modules, then that test should just be ignored.
