Announcements and General Business

WTP 3.2.5 winding down

WTP 3.2.5 pmc review bug list

Discuss API policy recommendations / guidelines

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. Raghu suggested tracking our recent decisions on api policy, and when exceptions were made. I started a wiki page here, with a query on "api" bugs. Let's discuss further, and ensure we include most PMC members in discussion.

Discuss Smoketest expectations

We had a discussion several weeks ago regarding expectations for projects smoke testing each weekly declared build, and in the case of WTP 3.2.5 allowed teams to skip if they didn't contribute to the release. Last week several teams chose to skip smoke testing one or more releases (3.4 or 3.3.2).

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

Update: I checked in with Max, and he is still waiting on a response from Sonotype, Will continue to engage Max to help progress.

Other Business ... ?
