    Default Is this the right place for questions about the Spoon code base?

    I'm a new user and I think I've found a bug in the Spoon code base.
    Is this the right place to discuss it?

    Hi peter,

    first welcome here :-)
    You can raise a bug in the Pentaho bug tracking system (after logged) :

    http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PDI?r...arissues-panel

    Take care

    Samatar

    I opened bug PDI-2607 on the 10th. Yesterday I added another comment
    on it, essentially, I think I know what the proper fix is now.
    However, it seems that adding comments to an already existing bug
    doesn't get much attention... I can give you the basics here, or I
    can wait for a response on the bug?

    Hi Peter,

    thanks for reporting this bug...

    ....and thanks for Matt who wrote this wonderful piece of "Read me
    first!" on the forum. Now, I can just copy and paste:

    "What is certain is that we give our Enterprise Edition customers and
    partners priority with respect to both bug resolution and feature
    requests. Beyond the paying customers we look at the popularity of
    certain bugs, the votes they get, etc."

    Nevertheless thanks again for reporting and looking into this!

    Cheers,
    Jens

    Ok, sorry but that's a completely useless answer. This bug will hit
    everyone that has to do a file load on a file with wrapped lines, even
    the ones paying for support... It might also affect other use cases
    (I haven't tested.) I'm offering to send you a patch here, I'd just
    like an opinion on which of the two possible ways of doing the fix
    would make the most sense. However, if you don't want the fix I can
    continue to run my patched version.

    Hey Peter,

    come on ...

    My reply was on your comment about the attention to the JIRA case and
    believe me, we didn't had such a case in the customer support portal, yet.

    .... you are welcome to attach the fix (best against trunk and 3.2.2) to
    the JIRA case.

    Thanks much,
    Jens

    I can understand that paying customers get priority, but when you've
    got someone who's willing to track down the cause of a bug and fix it
    you'd hope that someone would be willing to pay attention....

    As I posted originally, I have some questions about what's the best
    way to do the fix. Looks like this is the best place to ask about
    them so I will start a new thread here on the issue.

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for looking into this. Now allow me to sound like a broken record and ask you to follow Samatar's advice : file a bug report in JIRA or look for an existing case.
    Attach the patch and reproduction path (including sample xform/text file) to the JIRA case.
    Then as Jens said it will go through standard triage process.

    Of-course, only then the work can really start:
    - evaluation of the fix
    - run checks to see if all still works as before (backward compatibility tests, run unit tests)
    - create an extra unit test
    - etc.

    Then someone can apply the fix.
    If you don't like the speed at which we do this work, keep a local source tree, get a support contract or find a lonely developer with commit rights that wants to do the work above.

    Let me note that after a few good patches we're usually rather quick to grant (serious) people commit access to the PDI Subversion repositories.
    3 devs have joined in the last month alone.

    Those are the rules of the game. If you don't like them, that's just tough luck :-)

    Take care,
    Matt

    Matt, if you read through this thread you'll see I already opened the
    JIRA case. However, not being familiar with the code base I'm trying
    to get some guidance as to which possible version of two different
    fixes would make the most sense.

    I'm already an Apache committer, I don't really have time for another
    project. :-)
