Friends of Eclipse,
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day! During the month of September, we are asking you to give back to our wonderful open source community. All donations will be used to improve Eclipse technology. Your contribution counts!
We thank you for this gesture, and for giving back to our community.
Not much feedback, on document nor WTP in general. Thirty minutes is a very short time. But, on specific items:
Any thoughts on proposed schedule? Counter proposals?
How to state theme? Pre-PMC Review? "Bug fixes only as reviewed and approved by Project Lead (or delegate)"
We discussed (some) the Dai 2.1 plan. Neil agreed that 2.0.x maintenance would continue for serious bugs if required. He also agreed the 2.1 plan needs a "ramp down" period added. We also need to come up with a build component/process that produces a separate zip (and would have different prereqs, at some point). Neil will open bug to track. REMINDER: Dali 2.1 will require a release review.
We also discussed the general problem of us hitting "Wednesday deliveries". The Simultaneous Release team (Planning Council) wants narrow delivery windows but it does mess up our rhythm).
Planning Process Document has been started.
Eclipse-level dates and requirements have been clarified in a Planning Council message (and elsewhere).
Please review: Resource Page Proposal
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":
Naci updated us today: Publisher would like all articles in one issue (for an issued focused on WTP). Online version would be in English. Print version would be translated to German. They'd like one overview article less than 20,000 words, and 4 shorter, but more focused article on specific areas, each less than 10,000 words
Naci will have some Eductation site/materials ready next week. He'll likely create a new bugzilla component ("Education"? I assume under the main Web Tools "product")
As mentioned last week, we'll publish education materials under Creative Commons -- Attribution Share Alike but still EPL for sample code, examples and snippets.
Back to meeting list.
Please send any additions or corrections to David Williams.
