Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Callisto staging Update Site ready fortesting ... sort of

Even though I clearly understand the goal of callisto, making all the things available for download from one update site simply augment the belief that callisto is about integration. I think this is because the term"simultaneous release" does not capture the motivation behind callisto (which I believe is to ease the reconsumption of the eclipse stack for tool vendors).
So there is two possibilities:
- don't make one update site and let people hunt down the required jars
- go ahead with one update site, fix the obvious integration problem and get beaten by the reviews for poor integration so we can do better the next time.

Even though it will hurt, I'm in favor of the second option as otherwise we will never improve cross project integration and communication.

Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Callisto staging Update Site        ready        fortesting ... sort of

Well, I guess the users are going to be disappointed because I just don't see this (one update site for maintenance as well) happening for Callisto. We'll talk about this at our next planning phone call.

But I do want to clarify: "Callisto" is the "Callisto Simultaneous Release". There is no promise of "work together in a seamless experience". We have been very careful not to promise that as we do not believe that to be possible in the Callisto time frame. This is about the "simultaneous release of the ten projects" and we will work hard to make them work together, but there is no guarantee that that will happen.

The user expectation is that there will be one true update site for Callisto. All Callisto projects are supposed to work together in a seamless experience. You can't guarantee that if you allow multiple update sites.
