Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Are project dependencies required to participate in Luna?

Can I clarify ... or, ask for clarification ...

Your (BPMN2 Modeler) plan is to use "as is" the "incubation release" from
https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/modeling.mdt.bpmn2/releases/0.7.0
which as made in 6/23/2010 [1],  
and you have confirmed it meets all the "must do" requirements, which is what allows you to use it "as is".
If all that's true, that's fine .... but ...

Given that the one and only release was 3 years ago, that sort of sounds like there is not a lot of activity on that project, but haven't looked in code repo or anything.
 
[I was not able to find who (if anyone) is a current committer or project lead, but assume they are aware of this plan and agree its ok ... ]

Just makes me wonder if it (the current subproject of MDT) should "move" to be a proper part of BPMN2 Modeler project?

You could still basically use "as is" if it suits your needs, but ... would give more opportunity to correct errors if any found ... and I am pretty sure there are some ... as the latest "repo report" [2] shows you both are missing some "about.html" files (I'm assuming "both" just going by version numbers of bundles).

Missing about.html in file: org.eclipse.bpmn2.edit_0.7.0.201308220617.jar
Missing about.html in file: org.eclipse.bpmn2.editor_0.7.0.201308220617.jar
Missing about.html in file: org.eclipse.bpmn2.modeler.help_1.0.2.201312131338.jar
Missing about.html in file: org.eclipse.bpmn2.modeler.wsil_1.0.2.201312131338.jar
Missing about.html in file: org.eclipse.bpmn2_0.7.0.201308220617.jar


Plus, given that BPMN2 Modeler has "graduated" from incubation, I think it gives you a chance to drive the "mdt" piece to graduation, give it a "1.0" version, so you do not have to "contaminate" any names/labels by putting "incubating" back in. Naturally, this means you really would/could maintain it, etc.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks

Yes, with some restrictions.

This captured in the FAQ.

Hi Wayne,

The BPMN2 Modeler project will be participating in the Luna release. This project depends on the MDT BPMN2 project which is currently not part of any release train. My question: is MDT BPMN2 also required to be part of Luna, and does it need to be included in the simrel aggregator?
