RE: [eclipse.org-planning-council] RE: [cross-project-issues-dev]EclipseCon and Ganymede M5
+1 for hopping on Integration builds early in order to
avoid M5eh this year.
We discussed it several times and
everyone was in favor of it, so let's
do it! I'm getting the Platform I-build
now and setting up our unit tests
to run against it.
If I'm not mistaken, the problem that led to M5eh last year
was a Platform
issue that would only be discovered once integration tests
were run with
lots of other stuff on top of the Platform. So let's do it
and throw our stuff
on it early - it will be for the good of all of us
regardless of making the
stick or not.
-1 for relying on any kind of local mirror for late
updates. I tried installing
Europa from the EclipseCon mirrors last
year, and it was nothing but
PAINFUL. Given that we'll have P2 with
Ganymede, it also does not
help to do any stress testing of the old
Update Manager under problematic
network or bandwidth conditions.
+1 for JDKs on the stick if the room is there and the
can be clarified in
-1 for Win64 since it is not an officially supported
Platform as per the
Eclipse Project Plan. Of course win32,
linux-gtk32 and Mac should
be there; I'm not even sure about
linux-gtk64, how many people
would have a Laptop that can ONLY run
linux64 and NOT linux32??
BTW, - depending on what packages should actually go on the
did anybody think about how Ganymede would actually be
from the stick? Looks like people would need
1.) Install JDK
2.) Install Platform or one of the EPP
Packages, then run it
3.) Help > SW Updates > Find and
Install... > New Local Site...
(i.e. NOT use
the Ganymede Discovery Site)
IF Ganymede goes on the stick, a printed paper with such
should be distributed with the stick. Or can anybody come
up with an
even simpler installation story?
Also note that any issues that still keep people from
all of Ganymede and doing "install" need to be fixed by

To mitigate the risk of a rogue
post-milestone build, I would encourage all teams to download our latest
integration build and give it a try. Run your JUnits against it.
Use for it for every day development. If you see any issues,
don't delay, open a bug today...
Next week, I would encourage teams to try
out out one of builds toward M5 which will be running on the following
