Announcements and General Business

  • Any comments/suggestions on this draft of Termination Review?

    I've asked Philippe for feedback within a week. After that time, about 4/21, I'd like to send to Eclipse Foundation for distribution, but schedule the actual review about a month out, approximately 5/21, so there will be sufficient time for counter proposals if anyone is interested

    Comment from Raghu was to add more detail when it's available, such as "number of commits", "number of posts", and who exactly is interested, etc. I don't think this is strictly required, but I agreed to add some, as time permits. Note: some of the existing examples may have had more detail since it was, basically, the Eclipse Foundation asking for the termination, not the project leadership itself.

  • Naci mentioned we already have a new tutorial contribution to Education section, from Open University. He'll had news items. (And, I should subscribe to Education component!)
  • Naci is teaching a class until mid-May so we'll only be available the first 15 minutes of each PMC call.
  • Naci agreed to look into "welcome screen" contribution, since it would (mostly) just point back to our Education section.
  • We discussed idea of having a new contest for a new logo. We need so we can have improved icons for "about box" in Galileo release.

    Some thought it was too late to start, not enough time for this release. Others thought there might be enough time, and it wouldn't hurt to try ... if no clear "winner" we could just keep going for next release. We'd want to spell out the different formats required, one for web page (both large and small) and icon formats and ... anything else?

  • Spent some time discussing policy vs. practice of moving up pre-reqs (e.g. platform, emf, etc.).

    The main conclusion was we (or, I) don't have the resource to do automatically each week, though that's probably desirable (ideally after someone sanity checks it, but maybe that's not practical). So, bottom line for now is "upon request" (to wtp-releng) or until I think about it, which ever comes first) :).
