    We in WTP plan to post some educational materials that will be licensed under the Creative Common license. Specifically, that flavor of "Attribution-Share Alike" for "non-code" sources such as presentations, images, and/or documents, either

    but still EPL for sample code, examples and snippets. Everyone we've talked to thinks this is a good idea.

  • Board Presentation: 17th ... implies sent to Board on 10th ... implies PMC Review on 9th (next PMC call)!

Naci was approached (and countered) with some proposed articles for Eclipse (online) magazine [need link. only one I found last published in 2007?] Naci will invite authors for a series of articles for "WTP Uncovered":

  1. web developer tools (xml, xsl, html, css)
  2. web applications with Java (jsf, jsp, server)
  3. enterprise application (jpa/ejb)

Quality: Neil Hauge

Notes:
Neil investigating "close old bugs" policy.
Neil has estimated approximately 800 bugs (of 2000 untargeted bugs) could be considered "old bugs". He'll prepare a table and note to send to project with encouragement to PLs to handle ... something like either triage individually and assign a target, or mark with 'helpwanted' or mark in mass with a kind comment to re-open if still an issue (with reason for the mass update, etc.).
