It has come to my attention that we
must enter CQ's for all dependencies on third party software that we reference,
including operating systems and JRE's . I had previously thought that
exempt pre-reqs didn't require a CQ. Furthermore, the policy says:
"These discussions and decisions
must occur transparently either via email on the public PMC mailing list,
or in the minutes of meetings distributed to the public PMC mailing list."
I am writing this email to satisfy the
above requirement. I would like to declare an "exempt pre-req"
dependency for the Eclipse project on the following:
Windows (CE, XP, Vista, or 7)
Linux Kernel 2.6
Mac OS X 10.5 or greater
Sun Solaris 10 or greater
HPUX 11i v2 or greater
IBM AIX 5.3 or greater
Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 or greater
Since the CQ deadline for Helios is
Feb. 5th, I'd like to submit a CQ for these as soon as possible. Please
respond here with any comments, concerns, additions, or corrections. If
I hear no objections or corrections before February 1st, I will assume
all is well and I will enter the CQ.
