Meta: seriously forked #29

As a new proto-user of ci_reporter, it seems a bit messy at the moment. The main branch doesn't support Test::Unit 2.0, the readme includes (in addition to this page) a github page that no longer exists, there are many non-converged forks and four open pull requests for different patches. What's the state of the project? Is Nick still leading it, or is someone else working up a new release? I would volunteer to help if I knew what I were doing, but I don't yet; I just want to use Test::Unit (today) and RSpec/Cucumber (tomorrow) with Jenkins CI, and I don't know that that makes me a great help for release. Are there specific tasks that need doing?


Hi Jay,

I am still the maintainer but have had limited time towards integrating these patches. You're right that there is more demand for Test::Unit 2 support and other fixes.

I'd like to see things get cleaned up, and perhaps I've just been a bit too tight on the reins of the project.

As far as actions, can you do any of the following:

  1. Pull request for README -- send one and if you have questions about what should be fixed let me know in the request
  2. Try integrating one or more of the pull requests and see how they work.

Testing: Ideally (using RVM) we should be able to run on JRuby, Rbx, 1.8.7 and 1.9.2. JRuby and 1.8.7 work fine, Rbx probably as well, but I think 1.9.2 support is lagging partially because of the miniunit/Test::Unit situation.

The code itself might need to be teased apart for different major versions of RSpec, Test::Unit, and so on. The current code (at least for RSpec, for example) is starting to get kludgy in its attempts to support multiple versions.

Thanks for your interest, and let me know if you can help with any of the above.

@shepmaster shepmaster added test-unit and removed 1.7.0 labels

How hard do you think it would be to factor out RSpec vs. Test:Unit into ci_reporter plugins?

About a full weekend of work. :smile:
