Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Simultaneous Release Dates

According to the process, we need to have approval from the Eclipse Planning Council to add the project after the M4 opt-in deadline. We're far enough away from that deadline, that I'd like to get council approval to include the project. I don't anticipate that this will be problematic.

I'll present this to the Eclipse Planning Council on behalf of the Eclipse Technology PMC.

I'm pretty sure that ACTF is not included in any packages, so the bitness of the contributions shouldn't be an issue. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

AFAICT, we haven't removed Eclipse ACTF from the build. The aggregation file will have to updated to pull in the most recent builds. Sooner is better than later.

Hi all,

Excuse me for this last-minute notice, but if possible ACTF would like to
contribute 1.6.0 to Photon (Offset +3).

Currently, ACTF only supports 32 bit version. We will continue support for
it based on this 1.6.0 release, and will switch to 64 bit version.

For those project teams that are participating in the Photon Simultaneous
Release, please pay attention to these dates.

December 15/2017 - Opt-in deadline
January 22/2018 - Non participating projects will be disabled from the
February 16/2018 - CQ Submission deadline (specify that the CQ is required
for Photon)
May 25/2018 - IP Log submission deadline
June 06/2018 - Review materials due
June 13/2018 - First round of release reviews (aim for this date if you
June 20/2018 - Second (final?) round of release reviews
June 27/2018 - Eclipse Photon GA

Note the January 22/2018 date to remove non participating projects from
the build. If any of the projects that have not opted-in are on your
critical path, you need to speak up. The list of projects that are now
considered to have dropped from the release are in the "Overview" block on
the right side of the Photon release page.

I'm concerned that Subversive in on that list. My sense is that Subversive
dropping out of the simultaneous release will have a significant negative
impact on our user community. If you have cycles to dedicate to
shepherding Subversive through the simultaneous release, please let me
know ASAP. Or, you could weigh in (or possibly volunteer) on my crazy idea
to consolidate some of our mature but understaffed projects into
consolidated project.

I do realize that the IP Log review date may seem a little early. The fact
is that it does take considerable time for me to confirm that the content
being delivered matches the CQ record.

Note that an IP Log is a record of intellectual property for an entire
project. The purpose of the IP Log review is to confirm that the project
team understands the Eclipse IP Policy and is implementing the supporting
processes. An IP Log is not intended to reflect the intellectual property
included with any particular release.

So, yes, you can continue to accept contributions after submitting the IP
Log for review. No, you don't need to resubmit the IP Log for re-review if
you accept a contribution.

If you do make significant changes to your third-party content or are
otherwise concerned that the intellectual property for the project
integrity may have been compromised after you've already submitted the
log, let me know and we'll sort it out.
