Intervention au prochain séminaire IRILL : Bug tracking à grande échelle et interopérabilité des outils de développement dans l’écosystème FLOSS

Je suis intervenu au séminaire Logiciel Libre et Programmation de l’IRILL, le jeudi 09/06 à 15h45.

Titre de l’exposé : Bug tracking à grande échelle et interopérabilité des outils de développement dans l’écosystème FLOSS

Résumé :

L’écosystème du logiciel libre (FLOSS) est caractérisé par un développement extrèmement décentralisé, avec de multiples canaux de production et de distribution décorellés, et des processus d’assurance qualité qui doivent donc prendre en compte ces aspects.

Dans cet ensemble de processus d’Assurance Qualité, nous détailerons le volet du suivi des rapports de bugs, en présentant quelques pistes de standardisation et des mécanismes d’interopérabilité (comme le standard OSLC).

Il reste encore de nombreux efforts d’implémentation à conduire, mais avec un espoir concret à lé clé de permettre la réalisation de nouveaux outils, basés sur l’approche Linked Data, permettant un suivi des rapports de bugs à grande échelle.

Conférence “OSLC : standard ouvert pour l’interopérabilité des outils ALM open source” le 11 mai à Solutions Linux

Nous interviendrons à Solutions Linux le 11 mai (15h10 – 15h40), pour parler d'”OSLC : standard ouvert pour l’interopérabilité des outils ALM open source“, où nous ferons un retour d’expérience sur les travaux menés dans le projet COCLICO autour d’OSLC.

Venez nombreux 🙂

Quick report from OSLC meetup in Paris last week

Last week, as part of the COCLICO project‘s efforts to work on forges interoperability issues, we invited partners and contacts for a short meetup in Paris, with a special guest, Steve Speicher, lead of the OSLC-CM domain work-group.

Steve was in Paris to speak at the Open World Forum 2010 in the forges interoperability track. As time slots at OWF were quite short, we proposed to have this meetup a few days earlier to be able to have more detailed discussions and demos.

Steve has presented the following slides : OSLC Specifications for Interoperability and a screencast of AJAX interaction between an OSLC-CM server and a consumer.

On our side, we made a quick demo (a screencast actually) of our Mantis add-on for OSLC-CM.

We have discussed several technical aspects of OSLC, and also the community of actors working on the specifications. Regarding the french speaking community, there doesn’t seem to be an urgent need to have a specific structure setup so far, but we will nevertheless probably continue sharing content in french whenever we have some time.

I’ve been very glad to meet Steve, and hopefully, there are gonna be other times for new meetups. Why not a formal OSLC conference some day ?

In the meantime, feel free to tell us if you’d like to discuss OSLC and forges interoperability.

COCLICO project’s efforts towards better forges interoperability (long)


I’ve given a talk in the recent Open Forges Think Tank track of Open World Forum, which was organized by Christian Rémy from Bull, also a partner in the COCLICO project (btw, thanks Christian, this was a great track, with several interesting presentations and a great panel).

I’ve had the privilege to speak on behalf of the whole COCLICO project, in the afternoon session which was focused on forges interoperability.

This article will somehow be a transcript of what I’ve said (or intended to say), with the accompanying slides available here.

In this quite long piece, I’ll first recap some of the context elements about the COCLICO project. Then I will describe the interoperability issues that I’ve tried and focused on in my presentation, including the issues of project lock-in in the forges. I’ve tried also to describe the current ideas we’ve elaborated in the project to address these issues of interoperability (including our plans for open standards elaboration for forges interoperability). I finally conclude with a proposal to join the PlanetForge community for all interested parties.

Unfortunately, not all of these ideas are currently yet properly documented on the COCLICO website, so I hope this article will serve as a useful reference for what COCLICO is doing, still being a subjective piece of my own views, not necessarily representing those of other COCLICO participants, nor a precise description of what we’ll manage to achieve in COCLICO or PlanetForge.

New OAuth plugin for Mantis

I’ve been working on implementing a (my first) plugin for Mantis to provide OAuth support in Mantis.

I now have a first 0.5 version that may be tested. More details here.

Nest step will be to try and use it for the OSLC-CM REST server add-on for Mantis, to allow clients to connect to the REST API using OAuth Access Tokens.
