Fork of docker-java under jenkins namespace?

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      The docker-java project (https://github.com/kpelykh/docker-java) seems to be unmaintained for a while. This blocks the development of the docker-build-step plugin. There is also a fork called JDocker (https://github.com/nirima/jDocker) which might be an alternative but i think it would be better to have an own docker java client developed under the jenkins namespace. Any suggestions?

          Personally I would fork it only when really necessary, IMHO it's better to join the forces (which is actually what you already do, if it's not only coincidence of names), maintain and develop one project over to have dozen of forks, keep and eye on them and eventually cherry-pick good and needed changes (from my experience, it's quite time consuming and late response to cherry-pick something could be an issue e.g. in case of security bugs). Let's keep this issue open for a while and see how docker-java will evolve, but for now I would keep it.

          Yes, meanwhile i'm a collaborator of docker-java, but for me the main point will be whether we are able to periodically roll out the artifact to maven central. Currently only the project owner is allowed to do so and his response time is a bit unsatisfying.

          Plugin has already switched to docker-java, closing.
