No objections from the PMC. I checked
Platform Ant, Platform Debug and PDE, and they are all good to go.
To close this, we should still get an
official go from Platform UI in bug
427530, especially since there
probably won't be an RC4 build. Eric, can you please take care of this,
given Paul is away? Thanks.
I would also like to improve the process
around the sign-offs: David, you nicely summarize in the bug report which
sign-offs are missing. I suggest you send a note with the missing sign-offs
to platform-releng-dev (and probably corresponding Equinox list) already
on Thursday EOD. While I do follow the lists frequently, I often lag behind
when it comes to bugzilla, hence a reminder on the mailing list would help
me to be informed about the current state of the sign-offs

Notice: Plan to promote RC3 without complete, official
According to previous procedural discussions, I should have sent this at
noon today (2/7).
My apologies for sending this so late in the day ... as I suspect many
of you won't see until after the deed is done. But ...
Our Kepler SR2 RC3 was supposed to be declared today (2/7), but a couple
of component leads have not signed off ... Bug
427530 - Declare Eclipse 4.3.2 (Kepler)
Platform UI, Debug, Ant
I'm guessing between vacations, illnesses, and plain being busy, some forgot
Most have made no changes since last week .... except for Platform UI.
And, we did do a respin for them, based on a bug found in RC3 testing.
My plan, unless I hear an objection, is to go ahead and officially declare
on Saturday (approximately noon) ... even if not everyone has signed off.
I think low risk, and don't want to hold up others in release train that
are depending on building or testing with our RC3 version.
Let me know if any objections, or have a better suggestion.
I'll also send note to cross project list, documenting our status, and
say that the bits in M20140206-1000
is nearly certain to be our
