Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Kepler's final staging repository is complete


CDO is too important a project to not fix this, so I vote for the (partial) respin.

Maybe next year we can have a bit more reviewing, approving and testing.

I'm not involved in the actual process that makes the various builds happen, however I would like to vote for a rebuild to happen to give him a chance to get his changes in.

If we can't do changes, then why don't we release now?

Eike, as much as I like to be accommodating, this doesn't sound like a
respin everything candidate. Is there a way to make this available as
a feature patch from your own project repo, so your users could get it immediately upon 6/26 release?
I have no clue how to deal with feature patches. The only viable alternative to a respin would be to offer a maintenance build immediately after the build. But you know how many users just rely on what's in the train...

Does this impact any/many EPP packages?
I think that only the Modeling package would be affected. I've cc'ed Markus.

If so, which ones, and what are "effects". How many users (use-cases)
would be  effected?
Unfortunately all CDO users would be affected. The effect is that whenever a CDOSession to a server is closed (usually at application exit time, but sometimes more often before that) and one of the frequent server notifications arrives, it causes a delay of 10 seconds. This is arguably not an all-data-is-lost kind of bug but certainly very annoying.

In addition not even the original bug is fixed now and that can (and did, as reported late by users) cause an application (i.e., it's CDOSession to hang from beginning if the server messaging load is high).

These two aspects together made me realize that I absolutely don't want to ship CDO in this state.

   From my quick skim read of the bug, it sounds like a performance regression that would not impact too many users ...
but, I'm willing to listen to other arguments for why it should be
considered "blocking" and why it might justify repining everything.
Please see above.

I'm not sure whether it's about the extra effort (I'll offer beer at next EclipseCon!) or about not fostering bad precedence - if there's the least bit of a chance, please be soft on me ;-)



Thanks for bringing it to our attention, in either case.

Hi All,

It's totally embarrassing but a user's have just reported that I made
a fatal typo in a last minute fix. I fear we can't ship with this typo in place. Is there any chance to get a contribution into Kepler with a fix to this fix?

The bug that was found late and that I fixed two days ago is:

410409: CDOClientIndications can arrive before session is fully active

Instead of checking for LifecycleState.ACTIVATING I wrote DEACTIVATING in a moment of pressure and unconciousness:

      if (session.getLifecycleState() == LifecycleState.ACTIVATING)
        LifecycleUtil.waitForActive(session, 10000L);

That not only doesn't fix the (timing-related, hard to test) original
problem, worse, it tends to add 10 second delays in other situations.
I already wondered why our tests took so much longer than usual, but I
blamed the build server load during the last contribution
opportunities ;-(

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience that I might cause!!!!!!!!

Here we are, at (near) the end of RC4 already! EPP packages will be  complete in a day or two.
Everyone, and especially anyone who pushed changes late in the day,
should confirm the staging repo contains what you expect it to.

The final repo-reports are available at the usual place:

For those of you with "missing legal files" ... it is between  you
and the EMO if they will grant an exception for the release.
I know of only one project that as requested it (bug 401273).

As for other things, such as unsigned jars, technically you should
work with your PMC and planning representative to ask  for exceptions,
but suspect if you have not done so by now, it's simply a matter that
you don't care. But, if you do, the reference is
ing_Council_Exception_Process  Beyond that, I'll leave it up to the
rest of the Planning Council  to raise objections if they think any
violations are  so egregious it deserves discussing whether or not to included in  the common repo.

Remember that as we enter "quiet week" we do NOT promote  the builds
to their usual place,  since to do so is basically making the release available early.
The purpose of "quiet week" is partially to allow adopters  to do
final acceptance testing, but to also serve as a buffer in case a
build is required -- but, rebuilds are very risky, and rare,  so has to be an especially bad bug (such as one which prevents install or update from working, or perhaps where one  project prevents another project from working).
Otherwise, the extra time is for projects to prepare "hot fix"
feature patches to be available from their own project repositories.

If you like to read wordy, but possibly educational, documents, don't
forget about

Thanks everyone. Good luck with your final testing and wrap-up.
