I am currently setting up separate repositories to replace openbsc.git. Aspects: - choice how to separate - apply 3G and AoIP changes to do code review My plan is to separate openbsc.git into these parts: osmo-msc.git = OsmoMSC osmo-bsc.git = OsmoBSC, OsmoBSCNAT osmo-sgsn.git = OsmoSGSN, OsmoGTPHUB osmo-mgw.git = new OsmoMGW, at first plain renamed from osmo-bsc_mgcp + libosmo-mgcp Each of these will contain the full openbsc.git history to be able to follow changes back in the log easily. The libmgcp has so far been internal to openbsc.git. I intend to make it an installed library from osmo-mgw.git (similar to libosmo-ranap from osmo-iuh.git), as libosmo-mgcp. libmgcp is used by MSC and BSC to communicate with osmo-mgw (osmo-bsc_mgcp). Also by osmo-bsc_nat, which I had actually not been aware of until now. libiu, shared between MSC and SGSN, has already moved to osmo-iuh. The other thing the MSC and SGSN still share is the GSUP client. The GSUP protocol code has already moved to libosmocore, but the gsup_client is still in openbsc. I believe it is appropriate to move the gsup_client along to libosmocore, even though the notion so far has been to keep it out of there. Otherwise we either duplicate the gsup_client or need another separate libosmo-gsupclient. Possibly other code needs to be moved around similarly, but AFAICT "decreasing in importance". Code review: We can review in various ways. I believe the least troublesome would be this: - create osmo-msc git from the current openbsc. - remove the top level 'openbsc' dir. - go through all of the patches in gerrit to apply to 'master', which will apply the VLR+HLR, then 3G and then AoIP, across all of MSC, BSC, SGSN and MGW, all of these in osmo-msc.git. - the state thus reached is the basis for the split. Copy this to osmo-*.git - in each separate git, remove the files not needed for that particular project. Remove possible remaining code duplication as we go. openbsc.git | | copy v osmo-msc.git | | - `mv openbsc/* .` v | gerrit code review: | +VLR | +3G | +AoIP | +------------------------------- | | v | ----------copy-------- | | | | | v v v | osmo-bsc osmo-sgsn osmo-mgw osmo-msc | | | | | | | | clean unrelated files v v v v continue ongoing development from these new master HEADs I'm currently playing through the separation, osmo-msc with top-level openbsc removed is done, osmo-mgw and osmo-bsc pending. This means that I will need to apply commits merged to openbsc from now on to the new separate gits until we move over for good. That's fairly similar to keeping the 3G,AoIP branch rebased onto openbsc master as we did previously. It may make sense to focus AoIP development onto the new repositories soon. So far I'm keeping the gits privately on a sysmocom office machine. We could also open up new osmo-* repositories on gerrit and git.osmocom.org now. ~N -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
