RE: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] October 11 conference callminutes
Here’s one view of current Eclipse
Bjorn, would it possible to move the
Eclipse AC meetings to either the first or the third Tuesday every month
instead of the second Tuesday? This conflicts with another internal meeting
where I’m selling Eclipse to various Intel product owners – so,
moving this meeting is much appreciated.

October 11 conference callminutes
We discussed two issues and produced one action item.
We adjourned early to allow ourselves 30 minutes to work on the action item.
We discussed what we should be creating for the architecture diagram for the
Roadmap. Is it a summary of the current state? Is it a discussion of the future
and forward looking architecture? Is it useful to the existing projects or is
it just seen as a waste of time providing no benefit to the teams? We concluded
that we needed to have documentation of the existing architecture before we
could do anything more forward looking so we resolved (ok, ok, Bjorn browbeat
everyone into agreeing) to spend a half-hour writing up their current view of
the Eclipse Platform architecture. These emails might provoke discussion
on our mailing list, plus Bjorn is going to merge these all into a discussion
document for our next call.
ACTION ITEM: Spend a half-hour to
write up what you see as the current Eclipse architecture.
The other item we discussed was what to do about plug-ins that require too many
other plug-ins. Kai had a number of examples, but we decided that in order to
have a reasonable discussion, we needed to send the examples/issues around in
advance of the call to allow time for everyone to prepare.
