|[eclipse.org-planning-council] StAC Teleconference and Meeting at EclipseCon|
First, some good news. The 2009 program plan allocates a budget for the EMO to use towards the theme of “ensuring a great release train” based on advice and prioritization of the StAC (i.e., the three councils ). Based on the StAC’s feedback and suggestions, we can fund efforts to help with Galileo, or if timing does not support priorities we can start looking to the 2010 release train. Purely hypothetical examples to show the things we could do include fund a usability study, work on cross project testing, etc.
To start this process, I would like to schedule an initial call immediately after the Architecture Council call this Thursday January 15th, on the same bridge. Time would be 9am Pacific, noon eastern, 1700 UTC.
I realize this is short notice – but I hope that the timing after the Architecture Call will help. The agenda for the 15th is to outline some of the constraints and decide how aggressive we want to be on helping Galileo versus the next release train. We will also schedule a follow up the week of January 26th where I hope we will be able to firm a proposal of recommended priorities.
On the wiki you can find details of a SWOT analysis of the release train that may help guide our decision making: http://wiki.eclipse.org/StAC_081028_Minutes
Finally, I would like to propose we plan a meeting at EclipseCon from 3pm-5pm on Sunday, March 22nd. The purpose of this meeting will be related to decisions made for the StAC budget.
