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.
We discussed and decided the following points:
Kolyan gave update on Trademark issue: it has been established no one can use "OSGi <anything>". They are now looking at something like "Enterprise Tools for OSGi Platform". Note the project's "short name" will be "Libra" and package namespace will be "org.eclipse.libra".
Neil gave "heads up" that they want to "include" (or depend on) some Eclipselink bunles that do JPQL parsing in Dali features (for validation, and code completion). The PMC did want to make sure we are sensitive to adopters and not give any appearance to an end-user of "depending on EclipseLink runtime" but Neil said no, just a few bundles that would not surface in any end-user UI ... they would not see "eclipselink runtime" installed, or anything similar. We'll work out how to "reship" those bundles similar to how we would Orbit bundles, so we don't have to instruct users to "go and install the EclipseLink runtime". If those bundles are not singletons, would be especially easy. If they are singletons, will need to use extra care to make sure same version is used by WTP and EclipseLink.
Back to meeting list.
