Re: [eclipse.org-planning-council] Who's +3 again?
a) EPP is supposed to be building as part of Ganymatic. If not today, then sooner or later. Bjorn's AFK for a while so I don't know the update on this or how often he'll be mail-checking.
b) What I'd wanted when suggesting the need for +3 and +4 was a way for the long-stack builds like GMF (8 dependencies) and UML2 Tools (9 dependencies) to have more time to get everything in place and to test. Having everyone +2-or-more trying to release on the same day meant that the +5, +8, +9 components sometimes were delayed and thus ended up being late. To avoid this I wanted to introduce more levels of granularity than just Platform, the handful of +1s, and the 'everyone else' bucket.
So, that said... here's a question. Should +2 still mean "only two deps" or should it mean "2-5 deps" and +3 be the tier for "5+ deps"? In other words, should people be able to decide which date they want, the +2 or the +3 date?
Or have we just decided on Platform, handful of +1s, all the +2s, and everyone else == +3-or-more?
I put this question to the projects/components with the longer stacks: if you depend on more than Eclipse + EMF, are you a +2 or a +3? And where does the line blur?
I'm a litte verklempt. Discuss. ;-)
