Re: [] RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] EclipseCon and Ganymede M5

I am all for Ganymede on a stick, but as an +2 project it is a bit troublesome to be asked to move our end date up with short notice.

In TPTP we are doing a requested concurrent maintenance release as we close down on M5 and everyone is more than fully challenged to deliver both. We just had a PMC call and are continuing to commit to the 18th date but sooner is questionable.

I would like to ask the same questions as Nick:

Can the stick dates be set a bit later to align closer with the previously committed plans?

Exactly what components are going to go on the stick, and for what hardware/OS platforms?

Thanks for your time.

Re: [] RE: [cross-project-issues-dev]        EclipseCon and Ganymede M5

Platform's scheduled M5 release is Friday Feb 8. Our M5 is due the
next day on Monday (+1 == Feb 11). History says Ed (or someone
Ed-like) finds a problem with M5 within the first few days of use,
prompting M5eh to be rolled out by week's end. This is why there's a
week lag between +1 and +2, so accomodate the slippage. But as Ed's on
vacation through the 9th, we may not find the 'eh' in time.

If we condense the schedule so that +2 is done on Feb 13, +3 on Feb
14, and EPP on Feb 15, that still leaves two days -- Feb 11 & 12 --
for M5 testing & platform respins, and Feb 18 for public releases and
copying to memory sticks. It's tight, but if there's no 'eh' this
year, it may be doable.

Of course the other approach might be extend the memory stick
deadline... is that possible?

Incidentally, which package(s) will be on the stick?
