Re: [eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - Oct 1, 2008

Another discussion topic

Performance tests in the 3.5 stream. The new performance machines have identical hardware configurations. Two machines are currently installed with Windows XP,  and two with RHEL 5.  Thus the performance configurations from 3.4.x don't make sense (slow versus fast machines).   Frédéric has suggested that we configure two machines with Windows XP jdk 1.6 and and two with Linux RHEL5 jdk 1.6 to help improve the reliability of results.
