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:
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@
