[dsdp-tm-dev] Moving forward towards TM 2.0RC3 and RELEASE
here's again a reminder and policy for how I think we
should be going forward towards TM 2.0RC3 and our release.
1. Bugzilla Cleanup.
DaveM and Kushal, you still have some bugs assigned to
2.0RC2 milestone. Please review these and assign a proper
target milestone in line with the guidelines outlined
Test and Use TM / RSE ourselves. The quality focus of this
release should be that TM / RSE is usable for day-to-day
work without any major glitches like hanging the IDE,
duplicate or stale data after refresh, actions (rename,
delete, ..) not performed on the remote as expected.
Please focus on remote file operations, editing and the
EFS integration as well as using RSE in your commercial
products -- that's what most people will be using.
Focus on documenting and prioritizing the problems we
find. We will only perform hi-priority, safe fixes but
doing so means that we need to look at the issues we
find and prioritize them.
Documentation also means writing API Docs for the current
state of our APIs where behavior of methods is unclear.
Document the current state rather than changing it.
According to our ramp down plan, all bug fixes need to
be "reviewed for appropriateness and risk". We need to
focus on fixing the hi-priority / major bugs first. Once
these are resolved, I'm also ok with fixing less major
problems, provided that the bugfix is simple and safe.
Javier and DaveD don't currently have any hi-priority bugs
assigned, so I'd appreciate if you could also have a look
at the hi-priority things and check if there is anything
you can help out with.
If not, you can work on lower-priority bugs and prepare
patches, but don't forget that writing documentation is
also important. We still have many Javadoc Compiler warnings
that should be resolved, and I'd like that all API classes
and interfaces include a note whether instantiation and
subclassing by clients are supported -- see
FYI, here is the release checklist that the Platform team uses:
we're on pretty good track with most points but there is still
work to do.
Let's go for it!
If you have any questions, please let me know.
