Greetings Simultaneous Release Participants!
It's that time of the quarter again.
Please have a look at the participation page
. If I have something wrong, please let me know.
I've made my usual best guesses at what version of each project's software will be included in the 2021-12 simultaneous release. Based on what I see in the simrel repository, though, I think that a few of you need to create release records for your contributions.
If your project is pushing a new version and I have the wrong version selected, please ensure that you have created a release record with the correct version number and date. If that's in place, then please respond to this thread with the correct version information (or just send me a separate note).
If your project is contributing a major or minor release and has not engaged in a progress or release review within one year of the release date, then please engage the EMO ASAP to schedule a review.
Note that even if you do not need to engage in a progress or release review, you are responsible for ensuring that the intellectual property due diligence process has been completed for all of the contents of your release
. If you have open CQs for content that will be included in the release, please reach out to emo-records@xxxxxxxxxxx
to request that they expedite processing.
If you haven't yet, consider trying the Eclipse Dash License Tool
to review the license state of your project's third party content.
Remember that you do not need to submit your IP Log for review if you are not engaging in a progress or release review. If you are uncertain about the status of your project's intellectual property, you can submit the IP Log with a comment requesting that the EMO review your project for conformance (when you submit an IP Log for review, the EMO will assume that you're initiating a release review unless you indicate otherwise).
I've noticed a few things...
Several Eclipse Mylyn features are disabled. Is this a problem? What is the status of this? It feels a little late to be asking this question, but will Eclipse Mylyn be updated in time to be included in the release?
Eclipse EGF dropped out starting with the 2021-09 release. Can/should somebody remove the aggrcon file?
Eclipse XWT and Eclipse Papyrus have been reactivated in the repository. In June
, these projects "decided to opt out of the train for this release". To the best of my knowledge, opting out completely (that is, not contributing even old bits) of a release is unprecedented, so I'm not sure what (if anything) special needs to be done here. AFAICT, nobody from the Planning Council expressed any concerns in response to the declaration from the project teams, so I've added them back in. Please let me know if this is a problem. AFAICT there is no release record for Eclipse XWT that corresponds to this release.
There are some very old components in the simultaneous release. The Eclipse Data Tools features are, AFAICT, more than three years old. Eclipse ACTF is more than four years old. Are these features being tested? Is there anybody on this list representing the interests of these projects?
Thanks for your attention.
