Re: [cdt-dev] CDT Call Wednesday

Hello folks,

Thanks for coming to the call today. Great to have new people coming and sharing their use of Eclipse CDT

Here are the minutes - feel free to make edits if anything was missed.

Actions from last meeting details

  • Anton and long paths. Action carried forward to January


  • Erik introduces background to bug 577263

    • The final output of the tool is not executable but a zip
    • There is a list option on the tool that has regressed due to bug 564257 - the change in bug 564257 was done for CDT 10.0 major release and advertised in the N&N
    • This means the command generator is not run anymore due to libs not being in the list
    • Various options have been discussed on how to solve
    • Action (John) Review gerrit to share opinion
    • Action (Torbjörn) put comments in bug on “getLibs”
  • Long paths

    • Torbjörn looking at JNA options that may solve long paths
    • Some bad news is that doing JNA cannot do forks of JVM.
    • Some problems with JustJ - it includes long paths with maven coordinates
    • There is public domain code in 7-zip to convert long paths to UNC
    • Action (Jonah) Share bug about JNA with UTF-8 problems
  • OpenJDK discussion

  • 2021-12

    • Release today!
  • Moving org.eclipse.remote

    • The org.eclipse.remote code is moving to CDT. Goal is to get it in in time for M1 (early January)
    • See Bug 577097
  • Moving GitHub

    • CDT will be moving at some point - no date yet, this is just the monthly reminder.

Next Meeting
