Chuck to run Thursday status meetings
Time to revamp "quality focus" (make sure patches addressed quickly, etc.)?
Neil agreed we could use some focus on triaging bugs/patches. He'll look into php queries.
Models of sharing releng work:
Unexpectedly lively discussion. Some unordered points:
Approved. Kaloyan to send note to PC list
Here's the proposed request to present to Planning Council:
The Libra project would like to join the Indigo Simultaneous Release. Libra will deliver two features for Indigo: WAR Products and OSGi Bundle Facet. The IP process for both of them is completed: CQ 4837  and CQ 4844 .
The WAR Products tooling has been originally developed to make the deployment of RAP applications easier. However, the tooling itself is not RAP specific and can be used for deploying any Server-Side Equinox applications. Since the RAP project is part of the Indigo Release, it really makes sense to have the WAR Products tooling in Indigo too. It will also benefit all developers of Server-Side Equinox applications. More details about WAR Products are available on the latest blog of Holger Staudacher . Installation and usage instructions are available on the wiki page .
The OSGi Bundle Facet feature links together the PDE and WTP tooling. It enable the WTP project wizards to create OSGi bundles projects, like Web Application Bundles and Persistence Bundles. It's the very first step towards providing OSGi tooling for enterprise applications. This feature will be a great complement to the PDE and WTP project that are in the Simultaneous Release since the very beginning. This feature is very well demonstrated in a short screencast . We are also in the process of writing a Getting Started guide .
Libra is still an incubating project. We think that including it in the Indigo Release will keep up the momentum and participation in the project to have this concrete goal to aim for. It will also increase community awareness and participation, if it can be in the common Indigo repository. We are confident that we can fulfill the requirements for the Simultaneous Release train. The limited scope of the first release (the above two features) enable us to quickly do all required changes. Our efforts are tracked in bug 338060 .
This request has been reviewed and approved by the WTP PMC at the 3/1 meeting.

CQ 4830 EJB Timer Waiting for Kaloyan.
Kaloyan will attend to this week.
Do we have agreement (or a plan?) on what to do with Graphiti? 'include' or 'require'?
Should be "requires" unless reason not to. Neil will discuss with Tran to a) see if reasons b) see if work is feasible for M6.
Neil will discuss with Tran to see what needs to be changed, if anything
Who, when, how much?
Chuck will initiate phone calls/discussions. Seemed to be desire (and people) to contribute ... but post Indigo
Back to meeting list.
