Education: Naci Dai

  • Phase 1, orgainize what we have, done by end January.
  • Phase 2, self guided new materials. some available by EclipseCon.
  • phase 3, shutdown .. scenerios
Notes:
Orgainizing "current" now, should be ready by EclipseCon.
Will be organized better for narrowing selection and sorting.
For now, the "database" will be one XML file, with various attributes/qualities to search and sort on.

Reference

  • As agreed, dw has updated patch process document

Reference

Reference:

ATF

  • ?

Architecture: Tim deBoer

  • Neil asked, and Tim agreed to suppliment current API Policy Doc., on non-API use within WTP. Something to the effect of:

    "Clean API use is encourage, but not critical, since no independent releases are anticipated anytime soon. Where feasible, bugs should be open with "API Requests" just as we expect from others, but there will be no focused effort to make sure that's done, since not a high priority, and since can easily see it when all source is loaded up."

Reference

Requirements: Raghu Srinivasan

Notes:
We may need a mid-year release.
Strategic Advisory Council (Raghu will be going).

Reference

General business?

  • Requirement Project: http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/ormf/
    Notes:
    Raghu's impression was not particular overlap, other than what any other Eclipse project would have (and having interest in a requirements tool).
  • Face-to-face meeting.
    Notes:
    Monday BOF, Tuesday breakfast, Wed. 10-12
  • 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?)
    Notes:
    No one liked "3.5" idea.
  • Potential resource issues?
    • 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.
    Notes:
    • No obvious resouce solutions.
    • Needs some JSF features, at least for build

Action Items

  1. David: Will call for Project Lead vote on WTP Policy on Package Visibility

  3. David: create wiki page for 3rd-party requirements
