Jeff - Updates are in the bugzillas.

2. Community Update - Lawrence Mandel

EclipseCon 2006 update.

Lawrence - EclipseCon 2006 is next week. Information available on the WTP site and via a recommended track on the EclipseCon site.

Lawrence - Yet to received slides from Amy and John.

Chuck - Get you the slides tomorrow.

Lawrence - The WTP EclipseCon project sprint time and place has been confirmed. The sprint will take place on Monday, Mar. 20, from 6:30-8:30pm in room 203 at the conference centre. Presentations from each component will take the first 45 minutes to an hour after which there will be a meet n' greet where the community will have an opportunity to meet the committers/contributors.

Lawrence - Code clinic has low turnout last year. I suggest one time for webtools developers Wed 11:30-13:00. Does not conflict with any events. volunteers?

Jeff, Arthur, Kosta, Lawrence volunteered.

Lawrence - WTP logo has been selected - it should be on the Website shortly. It is available in bug 122593  if you'd like to use it at EclipseCon.

3. Docs for Known issues - Kate Price

I've noticed a few people adding notes to their bugs that they'd like to see some troubleshooting added to the docs for known issues (mainly bugs that we aren't able to resolve yet or unexpected behavior that we can't fix). I've opened a bugzilla ( to deal with all of these requests in one place. Currently we just ask people to search through bugzilla when they encounter an issue  but I'd like to add a doc to the infocenter so that users can easily search for known issues and find a workaround.

Lawrence - These changes require rebuilds. So get them in sooner than later.

Arthur - We should treat them like code, on the same schedule.

Tim - Agreed.

4. WTP 1.0.2 Status

Reminder: tomorrow is the last day to submit 1.0.2 hot bugs.

4.1 WTP 1.0.2 Build Status - David Williams

David - Late getting our M build declared this week.

David - One last JUnit failure. Chuck is 99% sure it's nothing in the code. It's probably related to workbench shutting down or something. Still a good build to declare. Recommandation is to declare that one.

4.2 WTP 1.0.2 Bugzilla Status [1] - Jeffrey Liu


Jeff - Updates are in the bugzillas.

5. WTP 1.5 M5 Status

5.1 WTP 1.5 M5 Build Status - David Williams

David - Build ok, but lots of JUnit failures on the build machine, but not on other machines.

David - Even with the failure, I hope the build is good to smoke tests with and report results by tomorrow.

Chuck - A new build just came out and that one has zero JUnit errors.

Naci - Tried the latest build, and cannot create project. It could be my workspace.

David - I will still ask people to smoke test and report results since all JUnit pass.

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


Jeff - We are out of time. Owners of these hot bugs, please report progress in the bugzilla. Thanks.

6. Committer nomination status

Tim - Voting will be opened till a week of nomination.

Arthur - Kate and Richard were nominated on Tues. Can we plan a meeting to discuss this at EclipseCon. Usual time.

7. Other Business - Open

Arthur - Creation review of the AJAX project. They will be in incubator status, just like JSF.

Arthur - Any update on permission to host their contribution on the server?

Tim - Sent request to Bjorn. Word from EMO, we cannot put them on the Web site or the download server, but we can put them in bugzilla.

Lawrence - We should get Craig to introduce himself in the project sprint.
