Announcements and General Business

  • Any news on OSGi EE Tools Proposal?

    Forum Discussion

  • Discuss proposed Vex move

    We discussed pros and cons. Actually had a hard time thinking of any "cons". Only ones mentioned that came close was that the move could result in less then ideal integration with xml/sse fromwork. It might lesson the need or viability of an "xml project" thats been discussed at times ... by setting an example of xml going where its used, instead of a central technology point. Might inhibit Vex from expanding out into new areas where a visual xml editor would be useful (and instead focus on only the documentation use cases). But none of those seemed very large or likely, at least not to out weigh the advantages that were anticipated: closer to like-minded developers and end-users. Especially since there were no other dependencies on it within WTP or (as far as we know) adopters of WTP [after all, it has been incubating] so any new uses/dependencies, etc., could be worked out as well in one project vs. the other. In other words, move request approved. Compliments to Dave and others for thinking of it and taking a constructive, proactive, positive approach to improving Eclipse.

  • JAXRS Tooling?

    Neil mentioned an unanswered newsgroup/forum/mailing list post. We agreed it was fine for a PMC member to send email to project leads, pointing out an item of interest that they might be interested in responding to. [DONE]

Future Agenda items

  • Retrospect Helios quick maintenance release. Does it mean we weren't ready to release? Any way to improve timing in future?
  • Disuss our model and assignments of "PMC Roles". Do they still make sense?
