Jens Lukowksi Committer Vote by Dominique

  • More than ten positive votes and on negative votes were received. The PMC agreed with the committers that Jens should be elevated to committer status.

Server Adapters by Naci

  • We will host adapters for commercial servers as long as the adapter is open source and there is a developer attached to the project for maintenance.
  • We will encourage companies to host their own update site for their adapter so that the company can make changes, point releases, etc. without being tied to the WTP release cycle.
  • Rationale: we will define a stable API for adapters, but the companies should do their own builds of their own adapters.
  • We are considering an extension point that allows advertising of adapter update sites. This would provide a scheme for third-parties to have adapters hosted elsewhere but still easily usable from within the WTP tools.  Naci and Arthur will create a feature request in Bugzilla.

Pagnagotis's patches and the wtp-dev mailing list by Bjorn

  • We must be more responsive to community input. We all agreed to this.
  • We also suggest that patches be submitted via bugzilla for ease of tracking.
