Code Management

In terms of code management, components of software stored in the source code repository of this project are classified as follows.

Core Component
  • Core components provides core functions of each software. They are designed to be used from Optional Components described below.
  • Development of core components are controlled following project policies to maintain compatibility with optional components. This is the reason Service Grid Open Source Project neither develops derived software nor provides its source code repository for derived software.
  • Only core members can commit source code of core components to the source code repository.
  • When you want to add or modify functions of core components, post your request on the multilingual BBS first. You can post a patch on the BBS, but it is required to be reviewed by core members before it is merged with the source code Service Grid Open Source Project manages.
Optional Component
  • Optional components are developed independently with Service Grid Open Source Project, but by using core components.
  • Members of this project can post their request on the multilingual BBS on the community site, but it is left to the developers whether or how the developer deals with.
  • Optional components are classified into the following two categories.
    • Authorized Component: Core members check the quality and watch development status.
    • Unauthorized Component: Core members are not involved in the quality and development status.
  • The developer of optional components or their derived software can commit the source code to the source code repository after he/she join the project as a developer.

Refer to pages of each software for which components of the software belong to which categories.

Access to Repository

Service Grid Open Source Project uses SourceForge for the management of source code. Commitment to the source code repository is permitted to core members and developers. Refer to pages of each software for the repository URL.
