Thanks Marc-André for that update! A lot of exciting pieces that I am sure the community will appreciate.

I am not able to attend the meetings but thought I would give a small update since I have been quiet for a while.

I am currently working pretty aggressively towards being able to use CDT on internal projects, which right now means generating CDT projects and Eclipse workspaces given the high number of projects and manual configuration I have to deal with. Aside from this not really shareable work, I have been sitting on several commits of varying completeness (missing tests, etc):
- Minor preprocessor and parser improvements 
- Some indexing bugs
- Compilation database (Managed one) improvements: wait until workspace refresh is done, delay indexer setup after CDB, parse active config CDB only, detect changes on refresh (F5)
- Some indexing performance improvements 
- VC Error parser fixes
- Build output parser (Windows) fixes
- Multiple index databases support. Resurrected but my new projects exposed shortcomings.

I am looking forward to upstreaming these soon.

Hello folks,

Thank you all for coming. Here are the minutes - feel free to correct any of them if needed.


  • Discussed/announced release schedule and changes such as to macOS and Windows signing.
    • See Simrel plan for schedule.
    • Last day to get anything in to CDT 10.3.0 (other than critical fixes) is 31 May for RC1 build.
    • See Bug 572875 and linked bugs for details on signing
  • Regression caused bug enhancement in Bug 572880 is a blocker for 10.3.0
    • John has some hardware at the moment that he can test on to make sure regression is fixed.
    • Hopefully Marc @ Intel (who provided the enhancement) can provide a fix.
  • Sam would like to improve/fix macOS debugging support
    • Sam outlined what issues he was seeing, this had lots of discussion of possible issues and way forward
    • Sam is going to work on, in the first instance, getting native debugging to work with homebrew(?) provided GDB.
    • The community offered him support and encouraged to ask questions on cdt-dev
  • Actions from the meeting:
