Description

In a recent group meeting (Nov 7th, 2018), we discussed several enhancements that could be done to the mk_acsysfe script. This issue will document these ideas.

  • Expand on the command line syntax so starting parameters to drivers can be specified.
  • We could add DABBEL templates to our driver modules (in comments). mk_acsysfe could scan the driver source and spit-out a DABBEL file with some of the fields properly filled-out (ACNET NODE, OID field in SSDN, etc.)
  • Rather than put the configuration on the command line, this information can be stored in a database and mk_acsysfe can simply query it to build a front-ends tarball. A web page can be written to edit the database.
  • Incorporate more OTP practices so front-ends can support the upgrade/downgrade capabilities of Erlang.

If anyone wants to implement any of these ideas, please create a Redmine subtask for each feature to track the effort.
