Hi Sergii, thank you for feedback,
>> c. There is no documentation how to install fpb from github master
branch. It's very useful for developers who want to use latest version. We
should add something
We had a documentation, but removed it because the newer fpb was released,
probably we should add this information permanently .
>> a. We are doing the same mistake putting all things into one basket.
There should be 2 repositories. One for examples and one for fpb. What's
the goal of keeping fpb in directory and examples on top?
These plugins are the data which are required for integration testing,
we test that plugin build is not broken, which we run when patch gets
published. I see nothing wrong with having the data for integration testing
in the same repository with product which should be tested.
Also in previous release we *removed* all the plugins which are not
related to the builder itself, lbaas and glusterfs.
>> This breaks a couple of things
Having data for testing in the repository doesn't break anything.
>> b. I cannot build fpm with simple
That is a good point, we should move code from fuel_plugin_builder directory
on top level, and move data for testing into examples directory.
>> c. There is no tags as I can see only stable/6.0
Correct, tags should be added.
>> d. There are no tests to improve code quality pep8 flask8, code coverage
That is not true, there are more then one hundreds unit tests which we run
for each patch with python 2.6 and python 2.7, also there are integration
which check that for each patch we don't break validation and that we can
build plugins for previous versions. Plus there are functional tests which
written by fuel-qa team, those tests check that we perform deployment
with plugins and required functionality works correctly. Also there *is*
>> e. Repository doesn't follow community standards.
I think this issue should be resolved with moving fuel_plugin_builder
on level higher, if not, please provide more specific description what is
>> 3. Setting tab ...
