Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 965566
Add note on building from sources for WFK components
Last modified: 2014-01-13 03:39:47 EST
Despite the fact we distribute source distributions, those cannot be compiled without access to internal repositories (either WFK compilation + EAP plugins repository or MEAD repository).
We need to propagate that information visibly to our customers, likely in following form in documentation and/or sources distributions zips in a readme file:
On request, Red Hat shall provide customers of [PRODUCT NAME] with
sufficient access to certain contents of our internal Maven
repository to facilitate rebuilding of original or modified
versions of components of [PRODUCT NAME]. Such access will be
provided by Red Hat to the requesting customer without undue delay.
I think we could mention it in the release notes, specifically by adding an info box to Installation Notes -> JBoss Web Framework Kit Maven Repository Installation .
A readme in the ZIPs could be provided as well, independently of the mention in the docs.
And finally a bit more polished verbiage:
On request, Red Hat will provide customers of [PRODUCT NAME] with
access to certain contents of its internal Maven repository to
facilitate rebuilding of original or modified
versions of [PRODUCT NAME] components. Such access will be
provided to the requesting customer without undue delay.
