Hi Folks,

We're getting close to ECF 2.0.0/Ganymede release (June 25th) and I
wanted call out a couple of things about what will/should happen this
week and next:

1) We are in a full code freeze on the Release_2_0 branch. For this
week, and next, please *no* changes to the code or meta-data in ANY ECF
plugins hosted on The only exceptions are:
a) If a critical (aka 'stop ship') bug is reported in Bugzilla
(none currently exist for ECF).
b) Changes to documentation *only*. You may work on the
documentation in, but before you do so please make
such work known to, so that others know what/where
you are working.
c) Work on HEAD (ECF 2.1). During this week, I would appreciate
keeping the number of changes on HEAD down to a avoid
confusion....bug if you do commit on HEAD *please* double check before
commit that you are actually on HEAD and *not* the Release_2_0 branch.

2) Here is the Ganymede Final Daze document, describing the sequence of
events that will happen the rest of this week and next week:

I will need to coordinate with Ted (at least) to accomplish the things
needed on Tuesday (24th) given my need to travel that morning/evening to

3) With ECF RC5, the final shared editing/docshare cola bugs have been
addressed (yea!!):

This is *really* cool, as it gives conflict detection and distributed
document model resolution as defined by Mustafa's SOC work:

4) Next Tuesday, Mustafa and I are giving a presentation at Google about
shared editing and ECF:

and this week will be working on preparing for that talk, which will

a) Demo/discussion of RT shared editing/docshare/cola
b) Demo/discussion of ECF discovery and remote services (along with
relationship to OSGi EE work presented by Jan and Markus last week)
c) Demo/short discussion of some other new ECF stuff (given time)

If you have something new (i.e. not in other previously presented
materials) that you would like to contribute to this (e.g. slides,
specifics, etc), please let me and Mustafa know as soon as possible.

5) I (and Mustafa) will be working together this week on a 15 min video
demo for The demo will certainly include RT shared
editing, and some of other user-level features (e.g. sharing screen
capture). Not sure yet whether there will be enough opportunity for
discovery and remote services demo...which I would like to do, but may
not have time to actually put together.

6) *PLEASE* work on documentation for the wiki, and put it in the proper
places there. Many of the links in actually go to
online documents (in the wiki), so changes/additions to the wiki
documents will be automatically incorporated into the ECF help/sdk docs.
Even (especially) creating some screen shots of doing different
things, and putting them up on the wiki will be extremely helpful.

7) We will have a hopefully *very* brief ECF conference call at 11am
pacific, June 19: ect#Next_Conference_Call:__Thurs.2C_June_19.2C_2008_1800_UTC

to discuss/address any last second issues.

Thanks! This is going to be a very exciting release!
