Just a couple of comments.

1) Keep the dialog going. In the end we all have very similar problems.
2) The app source/release system designed and implemented at APS had
   a LOT of discussion before it was built. It is being successfully used.
   The fact that people are still dissatisfied with it shows that this is
   a tough problem.
3) Johnny Tang looked very hard at what we have done before making changes.
4) I hope that the end result is a single (documented) Application
   Source/Release system that we can all use.

At APS, at least for now, we will continue to use the existing system.
Our Application Developers have adjusted to it. Thus we have the luxury
of sitting back and seeing what is developed by others.

One other warning. We have started working on getting rid of default.dctsdr
and the associated build utilities. All info will be read via ascii files.
One additional goal is the ability to allow each database and ioc to load
only the record types, device support, and driver support it uses.
Thus the existing requirement that all users of an application development
environment have to share the same set of ascii definition files will
disappear. In a few weeks there should be a document that gives more details
about what is being proposed. A lot of thought will have to be given to
"packaging". Whatever is done will impact App Source/Release systems at least
to some degree.
