Process [TW]

  • Discussion of getting CVS permissions cleaned up for incubating sub project leads; Tim opened Bugzilla to track with Sharon Corbett at the EMO. Issues should be raised there for necessary escalation.
  • Tim requesting proposed EULA from Instantiations for WindowsTester use so member companies can investigate its acceptability from a legal perspective.

Requirements and Planning [JK]

  • Internal planning at some member companies may delay us from the original planning timeline; may move out into September. Continued interest in quality, stability, and API definition. Jochen to post updated schedule.
  • SAP has expressed interest in EE 5 enablement; WTP 2.0 will need to enable this, but may have limited end user support for EE 5 depending on resource availability.
  • Deprecation policy discussion: minimum of one major release for APIs, and preference given to similar policy for adopter usage of non-APIs. Usage reports gathered to date indicate some API declarations that are needed as well as some educational opportunities for adopters.
