There's been several last minute problems
found with M3 and the testing, plans, and opinions are still being gathered
and discussed ... mostly on epp-dev list and some in bugs such as
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=421801 (and the bugs it refers to).
My intuition is we will still make available
what we have ... with several warnings and caveats ... but want to allow
time for others to "weigh in" on impacts of the problems, especially
on bug 421801, and on epp-dev list -- and to complicate things I am mostly
unavailable from around 10 to around 1 so easy to allow that time for committers
to weigh in, rather than rush a decision right before I'm off-line for
a few hours.
Sorry for the delay, but want to make
sure we know what warnings and caveats to give, and not "break"
too many people. Luckily, we are at only M3, where these types of problems
are more likely and good we are finding them now instead of M7 ... but
a few hours delay I think will be prudent, so we better understand the
extent of the issues.
