|[cross-project-issues-dev] Requirements to participate in the Oxygen (2017) Release repository|
Every year, the Planning Council specifies that M4 is the
deadline for the council to have the official, final version of
Release Requirements. This year is no exception (though,
sorry, I am sending this note a bit late in the day).
The requirements are the same as previous years, except we did
add one new item. Its purpose is to help us all focus on the
direction Eclipse needs to go with "continuous updates". At this
point, though, the requirement is for projects to "document" such
support and technically it is possible for a project to document
"we do not support it". See the following section for the new
requirement (and, please, read the whole document if you are new
to the Sim. Release and, even if you are not new, I recommend at
least skim reading it yearly! :)
As mentioned there I have also opened bug 509237 to have an ongoing discussion of what issues prevent "continuous updates".

Off topic: This is not related to requirements, but does not
deserve its own note ...
I have started a "trouble shooting" section in the Simultaneous
Release FAQ called Common
errors and what to do about them. Please contribute to it,
if anyone has seen other common problems that I have forgotten

Thanks as always!
