Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Build Workshop 3: planning, scheduling & call for participation

Thanks for organizing this, Nick.  I'd like to suggest that anyone interested in the Common Builder subscribe to the dash-dev mailing list.

I'd like to use that list for some pre-Workshop discussion, as I would like to set the pace before the Workshop begins.

Also, Adrian Skehill recently begun setting up Hudson on the Build Server - .  Adrian, if you can subscribe to the dash-dev mailing list, that would be great.  If you can you make it out to this Workshop, that would be awesome.

... to be continued on dash-dev.

Build Workshop 3: Build Hard With A Purpose [1] is fast approaching!

In order to create the sense of purpose alluded to in this workshop's
title, we need to settle on a schedule.

Earlier, it was suggested that Oct 22 would be a p2 hackathon day, but
rumours abound that when Pascal started asking people to drop by for a
p2-palooza -- to code, not just to talk -- everyone was suddenly busy.
So, instead of it being a fully hands-on day, perhaps we could use the
time to demo some of the new ideas in Eclipse 3.5's version of p2, to
discuss usability concerns, or to flesh out requirements?

Failing that, here's what I propose as a schedule for the time we've alotted.

Oct 22 12pm BW3 begins. Discuss requirements, ideas, plans,
limitations, etc. over lunch.
Oct 22 1 or 1:30pm. Coding begins in earnest.
Oct 22 6 or 7pm. Break for food; perhaps escape to a pub for some
lively build, provisioning, PDE, Eclipse, ... discussion & drinks?
Oct 23 9am. Coding resumes. Evening to be similar to previous, unless
a better idea is suggested. Perhaps the locals know of something
entertaining we can do?
Oct 24 9am. Coding resumes, final day. Day ends around lunch, or 6pm*.

* Because Oct 24-25 is Ontario Linux Fest in Toronto [2], the coding
may be cut short for the day at noon so that people can get back to TO
for the welcome party that night. Otherwise, the last train to Toronto
departs Fallowfield station at 6:30pm.

If you haven't already signed up on the wiki [1] but would like to
attend, please do so ASAP. If you have specific things you'd like to
discuss and/or develop, let us know in the Goals or Agenda sections of
the wiki [1].
