JK: Should we go with first PR or modify - if modify then who would edit it?
RK: Take as an action for next week.
FR: No issue with handlebars: - started with a-zone file.
RK: For handlebars - r-zone file is the resources, a-zone file is how they are used. f-zone file generated and is input for handlebars.
FR: So only need knowledge of a-zone and r-zone file. f-zone is generated?
RK: Yes. a-zone file will be replaced by yaml file.
FR: Should focus on content of a-zone where we need to introduce additional contents.
EF: f-zone is a production artefact?
RK: Yes (“F” means Freemarker input). Temporary file and can be deleted.
FR: Digital Signing: Maybe need to clarify usecases based on digital signing e.g revocation.
Project Manager - Specification
EF: Can we have several RTE folders?
RK: Yes - they would be target specific
LM: Version in discussion is still in Daniel’s account - not yet merged. Is the discussion closed on naming RTE vs layer or a variable that could be renamed
RK: Had to start somewhere. Can propose a configuration option.
LM: <RTE> allows for possible customisation
FR: What if want to deliver my own component and settings - no way to do it at component level?
RK: 3rd party component can have own config file. When you copy the component you have the original file and the config version. When you get a new version of pack can inform you there’s a new version of the config file.
FR: Follow the intention for project as a deliverable. Just want to say I have a dependency on a component and want to deliver the configuration with it.
RK: This is exactly what layers are for.
LM: What happens in the case of downgrading component versions?
RK: At the moment the situation is based on upgrade but downgrading is possible
JK: Downgrading and then upgrading would lose information. Depends on how far you want to go with full file history.
EF: Does it allow managing different instances of the same component?
JK: Not able to have different instances with different versions. Would be four files. Each component would have the reference configuration plus their own configuration.
JK: Benefits of the approach: 3-way merge, removing need for version information - it’s fully with the files.
