Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Today is M2


Are you suggesting that SUA 2.0 is a new participation requirement?  It seems to me merely a very-nice-to-have.  At this point I would just be happy if there were no corrupted variants of SUA 1.0 and SUA 1.1:

The odds that the 20 features using SUA 1.0 and the 365 features using SUA 1.1 will all migrate to SUA 2.0 before the 2020-03 release, without introducing new errors, seem beyond remote to me.


Note that not only were the two license problems above not fixed for M2, the signing problems were also not fixed:

On the plus side, although the Eclipse Eierlegende Wollmilchsau remains a horrible beast:

At least it launches successfully again:

Of course this is only the case after waiting some minutes for the workspace dialog prompt, hoping my computer doesn't catch on fire in the process, and then waiting another minute for the IDE actually rear its ugly head. 

At this point, the Error Log is very well populated:"">

Most interesting is that clicking an error log entry will always create a new one:

  org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException: No property tester contributes a property org.eclipse.tcf.te.launch.ui.model.canDelete to type class org.eclipse.ui.internal.views.log.LogEntry

Hey folks!

Today is the M2 date for the simultaneous release. I'll be assembling the  project participation information shortly.

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.
