1* easye reports on work on abcl-1.1.0 for 20120805

3Not much in actual commits from me at this point, just some basic
4tightening of the logic in the build process and README refreshes.

6My main energy, such as it was, involved working on setting up a
7quasi-continuous built/test environment for ABCL on various OS/JVM
8combinations.  Noticibly deficient is access to a reasonably "hands
9off" MSFT Windows environment, but with suitable virtualization, I
10could do something.  The open question: what would be the MSFT Windows
11equivalent to /etc/rc.local?  Is this even possible on a stock MSFT
12install?  Tentative conclusion:  just run the Windows tests manually
13as the effort involved here exceeds probably return on investment.

15** bisecting where changes take place
16
17If someone is able to create a test Bourne shell script that invokes
18abcl in a failing manner, I can submit this to my build farm to find
19out which commit actually breaks the trunk.  Please feel free to bug
20me on #abcl if this service could help you

22** ABCL-CONTRIB JNA fails to load on Solaris
23
24My build farm is hosted on solaris-x86_64 which seems to have caught a
25corner case in the JAR-PATHNAME code, looking like an unexpected
26DEVICE for a jar being bound to a "lingering" special.  Does not occur
27on osx-x86_64, which is rather puzzling.  Need to recheck my
28environments to ensure that I don't have an inadvertent patch applied
29somewhere.

31** Next Week
32
33*** Start testing whitespace in Pathnames
34
35ABCL-TEST-LISP tests are failing that used to work, so the starting
36point is to start analyzing where they fail.  Fortunately, I can now
37bisect the offending changes in a batch mode at this point.
38
39*** ABCL-ASDF testing
40
41After figuring out the ABCL-CONTRIB JNA bug, more testing of the Maven
42Aether interface is in order.  Goal:  load CFFI without user
43configuration in more places.
