    Tenatively suggested Monday evening, after awards ceremony.
  • Discussed version increment for next year (Io). Decided "3.1", unless there is major additions or something breaking. [Added after the meeting, should we consider "3.5"? (to match the platform?)
    No one liked "3.5" idea.

    • Product plugin for EPP and welcome screen
    • 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? -- probably suffices to simply record coverage. Perhaps ask for community help.
    • Performance Tests -- Kayolan making some progress.
    • No obvious resouce solutions.
    • Needs some JSF features, at least for build
