Announcements and General Business

  • Release key dates have been set.

    Need to start docuware soon

  • PMC Reviews
  • PAVE review scheduled, June 2.

    See eclipse.pave newsgroup

  • ATF Termination Review: Interesting Developments. There will be a call. We are scheduled for 5/20, 11 PM Eastern.

    Lots of good discussion. In particular on difference between 'Tools' and 'WTP'. We'll want to ask, get precise reasons, perhaps invite those interested to PMC meeting to discuss.

  • Ongoing: Logo and Icon contest announced on newsgroup and mailing list and opened bug 273272
  • 3.0.6 maintenance?

    Not much interest, but Raghu to report back 5/19.

    Conclusion: no interest. Patches only for post 3.0.5 fixes.

  • Our PMC-recommended "Provider name"?

    Previously was always "Eclipse.org" for everyone. PC recommends a bit more specific. Possibilities include "Eclipse Web Tools Platform", or "Eclipse <sub project>". I recommend the former.

    NOTE: No need for any "mass changes" at this point. Only new plugins, or "main" feature for about box.

    Conclusion: "Eclipse Web Tools Platform"
