[] Eclipse Photon Participation: The Deadline is Approaching

Note that if you have no idea what I'm talking about, then this message probably isn't for you and I apologise for the noise (I'll only use this channel this one time).

Eclipse Projects that intend to participate in the Photon Simultaneous Release are required to state their intention to do so on the cross-project-issues-dev mailing list. If your project intends to participate in the release and has not already stated that intent, please do so ASAP. The deadline coincides with the M4 build on December 15/2017.

This process has been set up--at least in part--to ensure that participating projects are listening to the communication channel. If your project is participating in Photon, then at least one project committer must monitor communications on the cross-project-issues-dev mailing list.

Project teams that have already declared their intent to participate in the Eclipse Photon Simultaneous Release are listed here:

Note that declaring participation in Photon is separate from having an active aggregator file. You may well have bits being pushed into the aggregate repository today based on your project's participation in the Eclipse Oxygen release, but this does not constitute a declaration of participation. You still need to declare participation in Photon before M4 on December 15/17.

Warning: shortly after M4, we'll start disabling the aggregation files for those projects that have not declared. Things will start breaking shortly thereafter.

Links and more information (including "how to announce your participation") can be found on the Photon wiki page.

Please be sure to create the release record and include it in your note when you declare participation.

If you have questions, connect with your PMC, your PMC's Eclipse Planning Council Representative, EMO, or me.
