Hello Francesco, Martin,

As a small side note: I am prioritizing AAAR for my next review in the ADDON group. I may not be able to start it until at least mid-June though due to personal time/project constraints, but it’ll be my next one. It would also be the first addon in the “probably a bit more complex than usual” category.

Hi Martin,

Sorry for the late reply but I was out for a couple of days.

It's the first time I hear about problem about the layout (the menu item is very simple).
I'll work on it to understand and support for the solution.

I understand (and agree on) that the plugin should not have an impact on the layout so I could suggest also different paths: why not a AAAR dashlet instead of a menu item?

In any case I'm available for other solutions and integrations.

Hi Francesco

Just to let you know that Daren and I have evaluated your plugin for this release, and mostly due to the fact that it requires a separate server, and we want to get 1.0 out soon, we decided to push it to 1.1. No scheduled date for that yet. In fact we need to work out a generic way of getting services on other servers into the build, so we can support external solr as well as pentaho, but that's another story :-)

Daren had a UI issue after adding AAAR, for him it is consistent between different installs, but I didn't see it myself, you can see here: https://github.com/marsbard/puppet-alfresco/issues/59

One final thing, the AAAR menu is quite prominent in the top menu; if we are planning to incorporate many different 'best of breed' plugins in our honeycomb edition it will be important not to give undue screen real estate to any individual unless absolutely necessary. Would it be difficult for you to make that UI element optional?

I hadn't really thought about the UI until this point but in fact we really need to tie all the honeycomb addons into a unified menu of some sort. If you have any thoughts on this let me know (basically needs to be extensible for new addons in a simple way).

Just realised there are some themes here that could do with wider discussion so copying in ootb-distro@ and ootb-addons@
