Announcements and General Business

  • Q: PMC approval of changes to provisional API?
    A: Yes (best to document same way).

    TODO: udpate approval doc. API Doc already mentions.

  • EclipseCon feedback?

    Web tools Tutorial well attended. 3 hours too short for content. (3 major topics too much. 2 topics would be ok).


    Some 25 minute talks didn't fit well. Perhaps ok for "grouped" or related content. Some of them could have been "lightening" talks. Speakers will have to adjust better, too, if used in future.

    Liked having tutorials each day.

    Since Neil is long winded, next year, put Raghu's talk before Neils :)

  • PMC Review and approval of 3.1.2 Patch (for public update site).

    See bug 305306.

  • Is M7 in trouble?
    • Review Accessibility checklist (summary)

      WPE and Faces Config editor are only "large" functions not accessible. Need to check if enough of Faces Config fixed to count as "accessible". WPE won't be for release. Raghu says maybe in maintenance release.

    • We need to rampdown.


      Everyone understood and agreed. These are some big areas that were known to be "coming in late" but almost done. Neil had a few from Dali yet to put in rampdown plan.

    • Java EE 6 annotation-based wizards

      Deadline? Point of no return? We decided 4/15 was hard cutoff.

    • Dali and EclipseLink

      new function coming? cross-packaging needed?

    • JSF

      Many defects deferred from M6 to M7, "at last minute"?

      feature restructuring desired

      Accessibility bugs outstanding since last year?
