Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] 2019-12 Participation Page

I've updated the records for both Eclipse CDO and Eclipse EMF Diff/Merge. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Note that changes we made to the EDP in late 2018 change the release review requirements. You only need to engage in a release review for releases that occur more than one year after your last successful release review. For most project teams (i.e., active projects making regular releases), this means that you only need to engage in a release review once every year.

You still need to create a release record, but you do not have to engage with the EMO or your PMC, and you don't need to submit your IP Log. Project leads do need to take care to ensure that the intellectual property included in all releases has been fully vetted by the IP due diligence process (that is, all CQs for content included in a release must be resolved before making the release official). If you're not sure, then you can check with the EMO or EMO IP Team.

Hello Wayne,


EMF Diff/Merge will contribute 0.11.2 to 2019-12 (same as 2019-09), not 0.12.0.

Greetings folks!


I've created the 2019-12 Participation page using the information that I could find. Let me know if anything is incorrect.


By way of reminder, if you are including new bits in this edition of the simultaneous release, you'll need a release record that indicates the version that you are contribution. There's more help in the wiki.


If you have not engaged in a release review in the last year, then you will need to engage in that process ASAP.


Note that, per the IP Policy updates approved by the Eclipse Board of Directors in October 2019, piggyback CQs are no longer required. I owe you all a much longer discussion about these changes (which are more extensive than just not needing piggybacks) which I promise to provide before the end of the year. I've started here.


Note also that, even if you are contributing new bits, but do not require a release review because you've done one in the last year already, the intellectual property contained (and referenced by) your release must be fully vetted by the IP due diligence process. 


The simultaneous release participation rules require that projects consume third party content via Eclipse Orbit, so this shouldn't be a problem for most of you. For those projects that consume third party content from outside of Orbit (e.g., those projects that consume NPM content), or are otherwise unsure of due diligence status of any of their content, you can submit an IP Log and I'll take a look.
