Re: Query about VS2012

It would also be good to clearly document the status of all
tool chain tags in a few places:

https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/master/BaseTools/Conf/tools_def.template
https://github.com/tianocore/edk2/blob/master/Readme.md

The status I can think of are:

1) Actively used by EDK II CI. This is already implied by the
"Build Status" table in Readme.md, but we need to make sure
it is updated if EDK II CI adds/removes use of tool chain
tags.
2) Actively supported by the community. Meaning all reported
bugs must be fixed.
3) Unsupported. Meaning the tool chain tag is in tools_def.txt
and developers are welcome to use it, but if something breaks,
the developer that sees the issue can make the choice to fix
it or not.

I think the specific question about VS2012 here is if anyone has
any objections if status of VS2012 is changed from Actively
Supported to Unsupported.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi All,

We have a build failure with VS2012(https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2631).
If no body uses VS2012, I would like to ignore this issue. I send this mail to collect information whether you are using VS2012.

Thanks,
Shenglei
