Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Documentation and signing requirements for Mars

BTW, the new launch bar feature isn’t signed yet. I’ll work on that today.

Many of the entries on the "unsigned" report [1] are features.

Features must also be signed.

Please check if your features are on the list. Note that the report doesn't include a path or make any particular distinction for features. I chased a plug-in for a solid hour yesterday before I noticed that there was a feature with exactly the same id (but with a different version number).

David, perhaps some future version of the tool can include more of the file path or some indication of feature vs. plug-in.

It looks like a few features aren't implementing the rules of participation [1]. If your project does not conform to the rules, it will fail the release review. If it does not make sense for your project to conform to the documentation and signing requirements, I will expect this to be documented in the release review materials and explicitly approved by your PMC.

Frankly, I'm primarily concerned with making sure that the legal documentation requirements are met and that the user experience has the fewest number of surprises.

To that end, please look at these reports. Focus on the "Bundles missing required files", "Unsigned JARs", "Feature Copyrights", and "Consistent, current licenses (SUA) in features" links. Resolve these first and then look at the rest of entries to make sure that you're getting them right as well.

I feel very strongly that every feature should have a description that's better than "My feature". Describe the feature with one or two sentences.

David, feel free to add your concerns to this list.

I've got some bugs open on some SUA problems. If I've opened a bug against your project, please deal with it ASAP.

Upcoming dates reminder:

May 22/2015 - IP Log submission deadline
May 29/2015 - Review materials due
June 12/2015 - Release Review
