PMC Conference Call - June 20, 2006
PMC Members Attending: Tim Wagner [TW], Arthur Ryman [AR], David Williams [DW], Raghunathan Srinivasan [RS],

PMC Member Regrets: none

Invited Guests: Neil Hauge (Dali), Bob Goodman (ATF), Kaloyan Raev (SAP representative addressing Java EE 5 extension points)

Others: Lawrence Mandel [LM]

Community Update [LM]

  • Site volunteer call will go out this week.
  • Inactive committer list drafted; next step is to verify with component leads.
  • Tim's interview with Daryl Taft finally happened.
  • Callisto launch page being constructed; working with Wayne Beaton to create a simple launchpad for web application developers. A demo for WTP install/configure/getting started already exists.

Procedural [TW]

  • Introduction of Bob Goodman from the ATF sub project
  • Peter Moogk committership passed
  • Dali and JSF review reminder
  • Bug milestone targeting: need to drive for realistic targeting, versus the "M1 to M2 to M3..." drift.
  • Will revisit "expired" bugs post 1.5.

SAP Request for Extension Points

  • Review of SAP request for extension points (see Kaloyan's writeup in PMC email archives from 6/16/2006).
  • PMC wants to support SAP's request, but needs a concrete proposal for technical review for 1.5.1 or 2.0. SAP to open a bug and attach design for extension points and sample code for evaluation by WTP committers. Patches for 1.5.1 should be the minimum change to enable SAP's product goals; API/extension point changes for Java EE 5 should go into the 2.0 stream.

1.0.3 and 1.5 Status

  • We will archive old release and milestone builds to free up mirror space for Callisto; specific list TBD based on download stats.

JSF Status [RS]

  • Working on RC5; code freeze except for serious issues.
  • Demo on Friday of Sybase visual JSF page designer (11am PDT). This would be targeting WTP 2.0 (i.e., not a 1.5.x item).
  • Raghu on vacation in July; Gerry Kessler will be available for PMC calls.

Dali Status [NH]

  • Last period of bug fixing, scheduled to freeze tomorrow (6/21).
  • Repackaging will occur post 0.5 release
  • Download should be on the WTP site, but does not require build integration. (We will postpone build integration until after the June 30th releases.) Manual touchups of download pages may be required; fallback will be a link to the Dali 0.5 download page.

ATF Status [Bob Goodman]

  • Working on "vnext" milestone planning
  • Driving outreach to other companies/potential participants

Action Items

  • [LM] 1.5 rollout coverage plan
  • [DW/Jeffrey] Old release/milestone archive plan
  • SAP will open bugs for 1.5.1 patches to enable their product release and 2.0 enhancement release for Java EE 5 support
