[] T&P Feedback RE: Roadmap Process


As noted earlier this year, the new Project Plan format has tags for linking
to the 2008 Themes and Priorities.

To be blunt, not a lot of updates have been made to the T&P's due to lack of
response.  Only minor tweaks have been made over the last couple of years.
Based on limited feedback and my own personal experiences, I've made a quick
pass through of the T&P for inclusion in the 2008 Road Map:

Given this document serves as the basis of the T&P tag of the Project Plan
XML format, further review by all the councils would be very welcome.

Project Leaders,

As project leaders, I'm sure you're aware that the Eclipse Board of 
Directors requires us to put together a Roadmap each year. The process 
and the deadlines that the Board has set for us are:

  1. By *September 30th, 2008*, all projects will have public project
     plans in the standardized project plan format (see
  2. The PMCs will review these plans during the month of October 2008.
  3. The PMCs will deliver these plans to the Planning Council at the
     end of October and the Planning Council will meet during the month
     of November (either physically or virtually) to write the planning
     section of the Roadmap.
  4. The Planning and Requirements Councils will deliver the complete
     Roadmap document to the Board of Directors at the end of November
     for the Board's consideration and approval during a plenary
     Council+Board meeting in December.

So, the key message here is that you (and I, because I'm a project lead 
too, thus really "we") have to complete our project plans, in the 
specified format, using the project meta-data and everything, by 
September 30th. My calendar shows that we have 67 calendar days and 47 
work-week-days (modulo various holidays) to complete our project plans.
