[Starlingx-discuss] Repo consolidation

This was a convenience separation. The license checking tool expects to have a repository per project and a main license defined for the entire repository. In this case, we wanted to release the project as Apache License 2.0 and the tool assumes that all the code inside the repository should has friendly licenses. However, the tool found some conflicting components and to solve the issue we move out those into the gplv2/3 repositories.

This doesn’t mean that were actual license conflicts, it means that this use case was outside of the scope of the tool.

I would like to discuss the advantage of consolidation vs split, I’m wondering if a model like CentOS has could help us, they have a repository for each component. This will lead us to have around 250 repositories (CentOS manages around 600) but I think that managing each of them would be more easy.

I don’t understand the distinction. There is already gpl code in stx_integ.

Objection.  We separated those out to comply with software license checking tools that we will still need to run.

Pranjal and Abraham are the subject matter experts here.  If there is a way to pass the code scanning tools and still combine these, I would not object at all.

I would like to propose that the following repo’s be consolidated under stx-integ.

  *   stx-gplv2
  *   stx-gplv3
  *   stx-upstream

Any objections/comments ?
