Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Tomorrow's Ganymede Review Call and IP Clearance

Just in case you're wondering where and when the call is...
As you'll see here <>, the Ganymede Simultaneous Release review call is scheduled for *Wednesday, June 4, at 8am PT*. All project leads are expected to attend the call.

The big Ganymedian review call is tomorrow. Here's what you need to know:

   1. Please download the slides
      <> ahead of time and
      familiarize yourself with the layout. Where are your quick
      slides (what slide numbers)? Where are your detailed slides
      (what slide numbers)?
   2. Please be prepared to talk about your project's conformance with
      the Ganymede Must Do <>
      items. Please be prepared to justify why you project chose not
      to do any of the must dos that you did not implement.
   3. There will be too many people on the phone call - please use
      your mute button aggressively or else there will just be too
      much noise.
   4. The review will be based on questions from the attendees only.
      If there are questions, the appropriate project team will answer
      those questions referring to their slide deck (see item 1). Once
      there are no further questions, the call will end.
         1. There will not be any traditional presentations of the
            slides, not even the mini-deck. The assumption is that
            people will have read the material in advance and will
            have questions that they want answered.

The big stick:

   1. Projects that are not IP cleared by the Eclipse Foundation by
      June 19th will not be in the Ganymede release. Their bits will
      be removed from the update sites, download sites, EPP packages,
      etc. The Foundation has no option or wiggle room here: none,
      zero. No clearance = no release.
         1. Note that the underlying Platform is one of the "not yet
            cleared" projects (see Janet's latest email). The
            Platforms failure to be IP approved would basically kill
            the entire June 25th Ganymede release date.
   2. Projects that failed to implemented Must Do items without a good
      reason will be removed from the Ganymede release. The Ganymede
      team will make these decisions.
