Hi guys,


FYI.  This is bad news for DSDP and the IP review process.  Please get your IP requests in ASAP so you’re at least in the queue.

Eclipse Project and PMC Leads,
As you know by the longer days (here in the north; you Australians are having shorter days), the end of June is rapidly approaching and the end of June is the big Callisto Simultaneous Release. Not only are the "Callisto Ten" planning a simultaneous release, but many other projects are also interested in releasing at, or very very near, the same time (see

The Callisto projects are having one giant Release Review on Friday, May 26th (see for the list of all scheduled reviews). Other projects, of course, must also have Release Reviews. Release Reviews must be scheduled in advance (send email to emo@xxxxxxxxxxx) and must include Eclipse Legal clearance of all third-party content, the IP Logs, etc. (see

Janet and her staff are working very hard to get through all the code and legal reviews as fast as they can - however they can only guarantee to get the Callisto work done in time for the end of June. The rest of the reviews will be first come, first served, and it is highly unlikely that all such reviews will get done in time for all the projects to release alongside Callisto. In the interim, please respect the Eclipse IP Policy, and the processes which have been mandated by the Eclipse Board of Directors, and wait for both approval by Eclipse Legal and a successful Release Review prior to any (non-milestone) releases.

We look forward to processing your requests and scheduling your reviews as expediently as we can, and we request your understanding of the increased workload. Thank you.
