Community

  • Eclipse Members Meeting in Chicago, Sep 19-21
  • Pieter Humprey is going

Process

  • WTP plan to lower barriers to contributions
  • Refactoring WTP
    • Bugzilla entry. Vote passed.
    • Complicated now by bug 198541. It would appear now easier to refactor some cvs directories for easier unix admin ... would NOT change package names, etc. But would change map files. Everyone would have to re-checkout those projects.
    • Need to update website. Bob will do basics, but Project Leads will need to take ownership of their own pages. See bug 201331
  • Eclipse Membership on two JCP groups ( JSR-220 and JSR-314)

    IP board meeting Wednesday, PMC leads and Oracle contributors invited.

    Meeting was held as scheduled, but we're waiting on a public statement from the IP board.

Quality

  • Neil to address progress in Thursday Status meetings.

Release Progress

  • 3.0
    • M2 October 5
  • 2.0.1
    • RC1 will require 1 PMC vote, RC2 will require 2
  • 1.5.5
    • GA on August 31

Discussions of PHP Project in Tools Project

  • Question of Charter, but otherwise there would be no objections, and some advantages seen, since they do build on top of WTP, and depend fairly heavily on it.
