Re: [ecf-dev] ECF 3.9.1

Hi Wim,

I would like to fix the JmDNS lockup or switch to the latest version of JmDNS.

Are you intending this for 3.9.1 in a couple of weeks? If so that would be great, but there are a number of things to do:

1) The latest JMDNS version that we have a CQ for appears to be 3.2.2-B. See [1] for the ECF IP log, and [2] for the ECF CQ for 3.2.2-B. I'm not sure what version of jmdns you will want to update to, but the good news is that other projects have apparently already gotten CQs for jmdns 3.4.0 [3] and 3.4.1 [4], so a new piggyback CQ must be opened for whichever version is a appropriate.
2) Please also open a new ECF enhancement request, specifically for whatever version of jmdns you identify above (e.g subject: 'update jmdns provider to version 3.4.1').

I think if you get 1 in pretty quickly, and it can be a piggyback CQ, then it probably will be approved quickly at this time of year. We can probably work through 2 pretty quickly as well...i.e. in time for a Nov 17 release of 3.9.1.

Also I would like to switch our build to Tycho. I talked to RedHat and we cannot get in the LTS program without it.


1) This is a much bigger undertaking, and I can't see it as feasible for 3.9.1 release...i.e. this month.
2) Although I'm generally in favor of doing it, it's going to take a fair amount of multi-person effort, as well coordination and assistance...from Markus K (in particular). Someone will need to marshal resources (e.g. new and/or existing committers, or major new contributions)
3) About getting in the LTS program: What good would that do ECF? I've had a direct interaction with the LTS people on this bug [3], and I've come to the sad conclusion that the way LTS is structured/chartered/defined does not provide any value to ECF [3].
