PMC Conference Call - July 12, 2005
Attending: Tim Wagner [TW], Naci Dai [ND], Lawrence Mandel [LM], David Williams [DW], Jochen Krause [JK], Arthur Ryman [AR]

Procedural matters

  • WTP accepts Dominique de Vito's resignation and offers its thanks for his contributions.
  • Dirk Le Roux's committership vote accepted.
  • WTP 0.7 release review has been accepted by the EMO.
  • EMO charter clarification. We need to clarify that the Java EE portion of our charter covers current and future versions of Java EE, including JCP standards in pre-acceptance stages and standards that are applicable to Web or Java application development that are not specifically targeted for Java EE.

Community Update [LM]

  • Short delay in help content; should be ready within the next few days. This will be the bulk of the contribution.
  • Christophe making progress on ISV documentation; first version be available toward the end of this week.
  • Looking at decoupling the help build from the dev build.

Architecture Update [DW]

  • Chuck planning to work with Kevin Haaland (platform base) w.r.t. flexible project migration; no update yet.

0.7 Release Status

  • First RC scheduled for Wednesday, July 13th
  • Bug count by priority: 1 / 29 / 300 / 12 (342 total)
  • Component leads will be polled; Arthur and Naci will make final call on RC viability during the day Wednesday. Cutoff on fixes Tuesday is 8pm EDT; build will be ready by midnight EDT. (CC will be suspended after the build.) Component leads should vote by 4pm EDT. If vote fails we spin another release with additional fixes; otherwise Arthur and Naci make final determination.
