Other business?

  • Kiril Mitov voted in as new committer (still in process).
  • Let's document, just to have it documented, when we can give "PMC Approval": (e.g. any member, at any time? only after PMC meeting and discussion?
    We decided the policy would be that we would always discuss at a PMC meeting, often "early" to avoid adding extra time on end of the 1 week waiting period. After that, any of us can enter the actual approval on the Eclipse Portal.
  • Potential resource issues?
    • Refactoring Doc features (and moving to appropriate sub-projects).
    • Refactoring SDK (source and JavaDoc) features/bundles (and moving to appropriate sub-projects)
    • Platform/OS coverage for testing and support?
    No obvious resouce solutions. JSF does generate "manually", and then just includes in the build.
    dw to ask hz if we should have test matrix?
