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.
Everyone thinks low attendance is simply current poor business environment. Note, Raghu had good turn out for JSF ... approx. 15 ... despite being in very last slot
scheduled 11/12. Slides to EMO 11/5 ... and to PMC at same time! Note: short maintenance stream, perhaps patch in spring, but then galileo only.
needs quick fix on markers view. See JEE tools plan for blocking bug number
1068 opened, since 3.0 release ~ half resolved
900 opened same period last year ~ similar resolved
steady "bug growth"
comparable with other Top Level Projects
Neil may do more detailed analysis eventually. In particular, it may be important for us to do by 'sub-project' to compare within our own projects, as well as to other top level ones
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.
New Bugzilla component created: "Education".
We will publish education materials under Creative Commons -- Attribution Share Alike but still EPL for sample code, examples and snippets.
Planning Process Document has been started.
Eclipse-level dates and requirements have been clarified in a Planning Council message (and elsewhere).
Raghu's Preliminary Note (to PMC PLs)
As you all know, we need to create the project plan for WTP-Galileo in the standard project plan format provided by the Foundation. We also need to create a plan for each subproject. So I have created the first cut of the plan for most of the active subprojects in WTP.
I need you to update the projectplanurl field for your project from the Eclipse Portal. For help, see the HOWTO/Project_Meta-Data. I don't have the permission to update this for all the subprojects. Once you do that, you can view the plan by going to the standard home for your project, For example, see the one for webtools as a whole, scroll down to the Project Plan section and click on the link that says, "pending standard form".
I would appreciate if you could try this and report your findings at the PMC call tomorrow. I (and David) have had mixed experiences in viewing this file and hence I want you to test it out before I mail this to all the other leads.
Following are the URLs to use for each of the subprojects:
For the community to consume, I am hoping I can aggregate the plans to one plan.
Please keep up with PMC Approvals
