		<html:div>---- DRAFT ----</html:div>
		<html:div> This document lays out the feature and API set for the next
			release of EMF Facet (EMFT Project), version 0.3. This project plan
			inherits from the Modeling Project Plan, which should be referenced
			when consulting this individual project plan.
			The release deliverables have the same form as is found in most
			Eclipse projects, namely:
				<html:li>EMFT EMF Facet SDK (includes runtime, sources, examples,
					and documentation) (downloadable and update site).
				<!-- <html:li>EMFT EMF Facet runtime binary distribution (downloadable 
					and update site). </html:li> <html:li>EMFT EMF Facet documentation (downloadable 
					and update site). </html:li> <html:li>EMFT EMF Facet examples (downloadable 
					and update site). </html:li> -->
				<!-- <html:li>An update site providing access to all the plug-ins, sources 
					and documentation.</html:li> <html:li>A downloadable archive of this update 
					site</html:li> -->
				Release milestones occur at roughly 6 week intervals and
				follow the Platform milestone releases by approximately 1 week&amp;
				that is, until the final 4.3 release of the Platform, upon which
				EMFT EMF Facet and other projects will release simultaneously. As
				EMFT EMF Facet depends on other projects, it will deliver its
				milestones at the +2 schedule in accordance with the schedule below.

				EMFT EMF Facet will produce maintenance releases to align with the
				Juno service releases (SR), that includes the Eclipse Platform
				and 4.2.2 releases. EMFT EMF Facet may produce interim
				releases in addition to these in order to satisfy client
					<html:li>Friday, September 28, 2012 - EMFT EMF Facet 0.2.1
						maintenance release (Juno Service Release 1)
					<html:li>Friday, February 22, 2013 - EMFT EMF Facet 0.2.2
						maintenance release (Juno Service Release 2)
			In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets
			reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments.
			The Eclipse EMFT EMF Facet project depends upon on the Platform and
			other projects, which are mostly "pure" Java. The 4.3 release of the
			Eclipse Platform Project is written and compiled against version 5.0
			of the Java Platform APIs, and targeted to run on version 5.0 of the
			Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition. EMF Facet will target the
			same Java version as EMF, which currently also requires Java 5.
			Eclipse Platform SDK 4.3 will be tested and validated on a number of
			reference platforms. EMFT EMF Facet will be tested and validated
			against a subset of those listed for the platform.
				The Eclipse Platform is designed as the basis for
				internationalized products. The user interface elements provided by
				the Eclipse SDK components, including dialogs and error messages,
				are externalized.
				The English strings are provided as the default
				resource bundles. As a result, the EMFT EMF Facet project will
				provide English strings in its default bundles and be localized to a
				subset of those locales offered by the Platform.
			Compatibility of Release 0.3.0: The EMFT EMF Facet project will be
			developed in parallel, and released simultaneously, with the
			following projects. As stated above, each milestone release of the
			EMFT EMF Facet project will be compatible with the corresponding
			milestones for each of these projects, and delivered the appropriate
				<html:li>Eclipse Platform SDK version 4.3</html:li>
				<html:li>Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) version 2.9</html:li>
				<html:li>Eclipse Model Development Tools (MDT) UML2 version 4.1
				A list of project requirements and agreed upon
				implementation time frames is found in this document. For the
				milestones listed in this document, a set of overall themes is used
				to indicate what major set of functionalities is to be concentrated
				on for each. These themes are presented below, while the
				requirements document and associated Bugzilla entries are left to
				those wanting more detailed information on each.
		<theme name="Restructuring">
					The main goal of this year is to finish the migration of
					features from MDT MoDisco (Query Manager and Facet Manager
					components) to EMF Facet.
					This restructuring is a priority otherwise
					we will not be able to provide stable and usable software. That's
					why non critical bugs will be fixed after this restructuring.

		<theme name="Service, Support and Maintenance">
					Service and support will take priority over new
					development work, however this year the restructuring has the
					highest priority. Commitments and schedules are subject to
					arbitrary change, slippage, or even deferral.
