Greetings Simultaneous Release 2019-06
By way of reminder, the process requires
project teams signal their participation by making a
change to their aggrcon file in the simrel repository. For
project teams that intend to drop out of the simultaneous
release, the process requires that you inform the group
and then remove your aggrcon file.
For projects that did
participate in the previous simultaneous release, the
project team's representative must touch the project's
aggrcon file by the milestone 2 (M2) date of the release
to indicate that the project wishes to continue
participating and that they project team is paying
AFAICT, 49 project teams have changed their aggrcon
file since the start of this release cycle. I have
captured my best guess at the version that each project is
participating with. Please have a look and let me know
what I've gotten wrong.
Note that if you are adding a new version of your
content (major, minor, or service), you need to create a
release record. Make sure that your release record has
"2019-06-19" as the release date (I did notice that least
one existing release record showed 2019-06-20 as the
release date; please have a look and fix your record if
this is you).
Please create the release record (or ensure that it has
been created) before you tell me that I've listed the
Version names must include some form of a semantic
version. You can prefix or suffix version names as you'd
like. The convention appears to be to not prefix or
suffix, or to include the simultaneous release name as a
Note that the PMI doesn't handle numbers appearing
before the semantic version very well, but I have a fix in
the queue that should sort this out in time for the
I intend to do a pass over the simrel repository again
on Friday, May 10 (M2) to bring the participation list up
to date and will start the public shaming of those who
have not followed the rules sometime thereafter.
Per the December 2018 update to the EDP, project teams
are not required to engage in a release review if they've
engaged in one in the year leading up to their release
date. No review is required. No PMC approval is required.
No IP log review is required. Remember that whether or
not you engage in a review, project teams are required
to follow the Eclipse IP Due Diligence Process. Your
releases must only include IP that has been either
"license certified" or "approved" by the IP Team. I
will initiate a scan of the repository tonight to ensure
that unvetted IP has not been inadvertently added.
Thanks for your attention.
