Konsta - 113137, no progress due to bug backlog.

Chuck - 114446, made progress but not 100% complete. Still need to remove some unused classes.

Jeff - 122833, have setup a WinXP machine with IBM 1.4.2 JRE to run JUnit tests. Results are uploaded, but not linked from the download pages. Will need to modify the HTML/PHP files to link to the new test results.

David - 127179, making progress, should be done today.

Chuck - 129207, like to call a meeting to discuss and communicate the status and get an idea of what people are expecting. Action is to get that meeting sent out. Target early next week.

2. WTP 1.5 M5 Status

2.1 WTP 1.5 M5 Build Status - David Williams

David - Produced our M5 candidate. We have a few last minute changes. We need everyone to verify this build.

David - There is currently a blocking update manager bug, we will need to respin.

Chuck - We found a couple of blockers. One we have a fix for, the other we are investigating. It concerns classpath variable not being setup correct. Outlook is to supply fixes by eod today.

Der Ping - Will provide test status before end of status meeting.

Kathy - Testing right now, report in an hour or so. Yesterday's driver and the drivers before that are good. Plus, we did not drop anything.

David - Nitin reported that run on server does not work on Linux.

Kathy - Web services smoke test ran fine on Linux. We'll add comment to the bug.

Keith - Still testing. Everything (WSDL, XSD) seems to be OK. Will report shortly.

David - On track for tm, but will need to respin.

David - Make sure to let others know if a fix may affect other teams. Please send a note to the dev list.

2.2 WTP 1.5 M5 Bugzilla Status [1] - Jeffrey Liu

  • Bugs still targetted to M5 [1]
  • P1 bugs [2]
  • Blocker/Critical bugs [3]
  • Unresolved Hot bugs [4]




Jeff - Please take a look at all the M5 targetted bugs, owners should defer these bugs to M6 or later if they are not going to fix it in M5.

Chuck - I request that bug 128658 to be included in M5. The fix is to add an additional content provider. We have a fix in hand.

David - Pretty important and safe fix.

Chuck - I also request bug 129059 to be included in M5. We have a fix. The fix is safe. This is a pretty important issue. EJB does not add to EAR. We feel it's pretty important to get these fix for M5.

David - There is a workaround, but if Chuck has tested the fix and feel comfortable with it, that's fine with me.

David - Does we need to address blocking bug 128996?

Konsta - We think this is a platform issue. We will test it again on the Eclipse M5 build to see if the problem is still there.

Hot bugs

Keith - 95903, patch does not work. Will revisit the patch. Target it for M6.

David - 107311, target for M6

David - 115762, target for M6

Kosta - 115892, don't think this is a hot item. We estimate of a 3 week of work. Will contact originator.

Chuck - 118493, dont think this is a valid request. Will need to discuss it with the originator. We don't go off and try to validate all the projects in the workspace.

John - 118853, enhancement request. Need to investigate.

John - 121153, looks like a trival fix.

David - 123600, not easy reproduce, not sure if it's hot item. Just assigned it to the correct component.

David - 123941, we want to improve this undo experience. We will look at it in M6

David - 123959, we will review the patch. Suspect the patch will not be directly applicable, but will take a look.

Chuck - 125929, there are patches. Need to check with Neeraj, he may have applied them already.

Naci - 126325, not for M5, but I can't reproduce it reliable. Target for M6.

Kosta - 126405, we provided a few workarounds. I think we should move it off the hot list. Will contact originator.

Kosta - 127119, for sure a hot issue. There's a manual workaround. Need to address in M6.

Chuck - 128491, one that I'm working on right now, and we have a patch for it.
