Technology intrigues me. Pretty much any sort, but I enjoy web-oriented tech the most. I like innovating, technical challenges, and learning new concepts. This is a place to remember some of those experiences. Maybe you’ll find something interesting.
Metalink Repositories: Stability Channels
on January 23, 2019
Continuing on the topic of metalink repositories, one of the biggest advantages I have found is that I no longer need to worry about complicated rules for when products should be published and what downstream components might be affected. Instead, I can focus on defining what “alpha” vs “rc” vs “stable” mean, and then downstream components consume however it’s appropriate for them. That may sound trivial and obvious. However, I found implementing those workflows in a product to be difficult before using metalink repositories (see Motivations for more details).
