  • WTP release review - see URLs in agenda, review is this Friday, May 26th at 8am PDT (along with the other Callisto projects). Slides will be reposted today with corrections.

1.0.3

  • 142391 (double byte characters in manifests) - still being tested
  • Builds turned back on yesterday evening. David to ask teams to perform smoke testing. Weekly M builds planned for Tuesdays.

Callisto / 1.5

  • Rampdown process update:
    1. Component lead review through RC4 (5/31) with email to wtp-dev to enable post hoc review.
    2. PMC approval (1.0.3 voting process) required from 6/1 through 6/14; lockdown targeted for 6/14. Additional PMC calls as needed to provide a frequent forum for bug triage and review.
    3. Stop-ship issues only with PMC approval (and cross-team notification) 6/15 through GA.

1.5.1 Release Planning

  • Change policy (applies to all maintenance releases): No new (or changed) API, extension points, or significant functionality changes permitted; no adopter should be broken by adopting this minor release. Any exceptions to this policy requires PMC review.
  • Incubating sub-projects are not subject to this restriction within their areas.
  • 1.5.1, 1.5.2, etc. will be produced on the maintenance stream. CVS HEAD will become WTP 2.0 (June 2007). "Feature packs" can be produced and released that provide more aggressive functionality additions on top of 1.5 (via branching if changes are required); there is no scheduled release activity for them. This can be used to allow a component to be advanced and preview its changes independent of the 2.0 stream.

JSF Status [RS]

  • Snippets contribution approved.
  • Successfully building as part of WTP. SDK still needs to be added.
  • Need to schedule release review.
  • PMC members must evaluate release worthiness in advance of release review.

Dali Status [NH]

  • Build integration ongoing
  • Release review schedule needed.
