Ta for entering the foray... Steve, can I make a suggestion ?
Bill Buchan 21.Aug.03 12:21 PM Lotus Notes
General All Releases All Platforms


Instead of you having to release all these fixpacks all the time..

Why not have a replicated database containing all incremental changes..

And some mechanism that says...

I want version x... On platform y. And I want these hotfixes... Go....

And it would build you a complete release, right there. For a complete reinstall every time.. (After all, the incrementals are almost as huge as the releases, right ?)

(Now. I can feel your eyes rolling at this point, as many, many fixes have interdependancies, etc, etc. And Notes isnt a "simple" system. And bending the current executables into something like this would cause heart failure.. I know - this isnt a "Lets do this in a lunchtime" request [as Domino/Linux was..] )

However, you did mention competitive advantage. Being a lazy git, I usually just let my windoze XP ("Xtremely Painful") update itself.. It would be cool to have that kind of functionality within a corporate, where you state in some central place

- "My servers will be this version, with these crititical fixes..."....

And then we dont have to download HUGE fixes every few weeks (okay, I jest - its usually once every four months - just they seem to have been coming thick and fast these days!)

I did say replicatable. So as a BP or a passport customer, I'd just rep with the Lotus servers, and keep my "fix" database up to date. Save a whole *heap* of trouble...

Oh - and keep up the good work. I personally like the more open Lotus "We've got this fix - do you want to apply it", and "Here's the fixes database". Just keeping them all up to date loses its attraction after about v3.0.1...

:-)

[ I know you cant possibly say in public "Gee, thats a great idea! Lets do it!"... But if you do go for this, I'll buy you a beer. Hell, even Sergei F***** will probably buy you a beer... :-) Oh, and dare I say it - IBM would bite your arm off for this technology for WebsFear... ]

Keep up the good work,

---* Bill
