Today is the M2 date for the simultaneous release. I'll be assembling the project participation information shortly.
If you are planning to contribute new bits to the 2020-03 simultaneous release, and have not already done so, please create a release record as soon as possible. It'll be much easier for everybody (especially me) if you can get this done before I start assembling the participation list (if the information is there, then it will be far more likely that I get it right the first time and we can avoid the back-and-forth of fixing things after the fact). There is help in the handbook
Please make sure that your content has the latest SUA and that, if your project is currently using the EPL-1.0, you update to the EPL-2.0. If you need help with this, please let me know (there's a lot of useful information for this on Bug 530393
You need only engage in a release review if you have not done so with one year of your release date. If you do need to engage in a release review, please engage in the workflow at your earliest convenience. The IP Log submission deadline is February 28/2020 (M3).
Note that, whether or not you engage in a release review, you are required to implement the IP Policy at all times. Further, it is a simultaneous release requirement that all third party content be consumed through Eclipse Orbit.
The IP Policy was updated in the fall. In practical terms for simultaneous release participants, this means that you no longer need to create piggyback CQs. There's more background in a Reviewing Third Party Content blog post
. More information regarding how our processes are being updated will be coming shortly.
You have likely heard that the Eclipse Planning Council was removed from the Bylaws of the Eclipse Foundation. This does not mean that the Planning Council no longer exists, only that it is no longer governed directly by the bylaws. The Planning Council is still very much the primary authority with regard to oversight of the simultaneous release.
