Announcements and General Business

Discuss API policy revision proposals

We discussed proposing some clarifications to our API policy, and Chuck sent a draft to the mailing list

Last weeks discussion concentrated on setting expectations, and possible including clarifications on review process, but not introducing new API rules or sections to existing doc. Let's discuss further, and ensure we include most PMC members in discussion.

Possible proposal for m2e-wtp incubation project coming...

In last weeks Java EE planning meeting, Max Anderson (JBoss) indicated this project is essentially owned by RedHat now, and they would be interested in bringing to Eclipse. Both Konstantin and I jumped at this possibility, and have offered our help creating a proposal. Max has very limited resources at the moment, but I think we (WTP PMC) should do all we can to encourage a proposal (Help with examples etc..)

Update: Max is planning on discussing the proposal with Sonotype to get their reaction, and initially planning on incubating under m2e project. Based on their reaction, may choose to incubate under WTP. No change or proposal made yet. Will continue to engage Max to help progress.
