The EPF project is entering a new exciting phase!



When we first launched EPF, our vision was to build a practice library
allowing you to select practices to adopt, one at the time. This better
mimics how many people do process improvement. You may strive to adopt a
process, but you get there by adopting a practice at the time. It avoids
fighting over what process is better, and instead focuses the debate on a
more productive discussion, what practices make sense for your context.



The realization of this vision is now getting much closer. IBM has taken
OpenUP, and refactored it into 11 practices which now have been contributed
back to EPF. Next major release of EPF aims at completing this practice
library. You can leverage this practice library to recreate Scrum (with
Scrum roles), something similar to Scrum + XP , or recreate OpenUP (with
OpenUP roles). You can add or remove practices as desired. You can create
your own practices. You are in control. You choose.



This is a major internal milestone. Check out current practices under
development at EPF Wiki, http://epf.eclipse.org/wikis/epfpraclib/ . Still a
lot of work left to do, but it is getting there...



We would love to get your feedback. Do we have the right practices? Do the
practices have the right content? Make your comments directly in the Wiki.
Make posts to this newsgroup or to epf-dev@eclipse.org .



We would love to get your involvement in the development of this practice
library. Sign up to develop a practice. Or parts of practice. Send an e-mail
to epf-dev@eclipse.org if you want to get involved.



The EPF team is looking forward to your feedback, your adoption, and your
contributions.

Tomorrow, Wed Feb 20, 11 AM EST, we have our regular weekly content team
meeting. Join if you are interested in contributing. Or join any subsequent
meeting. We would love your involvement, see meeting calendar for EPF at
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/eclipseprocessframework/c al .



Cheers
