Architecture Update [DW]

  • Features/dependencies document updated - see email thread and spec
  • API scanning tool and "reliance" tools update: Will revive tool against current component.xml files; also need to update the component files themselves for accuracy.

  • Status call this afternoon, and open to everyone.

Confirming 1.5 / 3.2 / "Zebra" DTP Migration Plan

  • Current WTP plan is to move all data tools permanently into DTP in the 1.5 timeframe.
  • Will request "contract" from DTP to provide our current data tools back to us, modulo package renaming, in the "Zebra" release.
  • Should do a scheduling checkup in early January on execution of this plan.
