[haiku-development] Questions about code reviews and static analysis tools for TU Delft research (Radjino Bholanath)

Mon, 2015-03-09 21:45
Hi everyone, I'm doing research on code reviews and static analysis tools at the SERG group () of the Delft University of Technology. Currently, we want to give an overview of the usage of code review and static analysis tools in open source projects. Therefore, I would be very happy to know a little bit more about how code reviews are used in Haiku and if (and maybe how) static analysis tools are used. I have a couple of questions for anyone willing to answer: ...

Also one more point that I missed in my most recent mail On Sun Feb 22 2015 at 8:55:14 PM Ingo Weinhold ingo_weinhold@xxxxxx wrote: The block_size field doesn't have a corresponding content_block_size field. The rationale for this is that partitioning systems don't specify block sizes for partitions they define. They just have a block size they use for defining/interpreting partition offsets and sizes. So, in fact, they have a content block size, just as file systems have a content block size. Since there is no other block size for a partition, the ...

From that and the not very helpful ticket description unfortunately I cannot say what the actual problem is that your patch 0001 is meant to fix. Your comment 17 [1] seems to imply that when uninitializing/re-initializing a partition the block_size field isn't reset correctly. ...

You would be best off masking =sys-deve/gcc-4.8 it is very well known that the 4.9 series and to a slightly lesser degree were both crap releases loaded with regressions. So do yourself a favour an *upgrade* to 4.7.4 After you go back to gcc-4.74 you'll probably want to emerge -e to see here Chase ...

This has happened before but I can't remember the reason.
