There has been a flurry of activity
to get some projects to meet the minimum requirements for a "release"
(not just Sim. Release, but a regular release).
It is my understanding that (finally)
all are on track for that except for SOA-BPMN2 Modeler. So, BPMN2 Modeler
should be removed from Sim. Release repo.
Another "late breaking" issue
is "WindowBuilder". Apparently they have never been able to "work
with" the Neon release, until just the other day. Well past the RC4
deadline. I asked the project lead to submit an "Exception Request"
if they wanted their new bits to be included in Neon. (And, my own advise
to them was to wait and re-enter in September, after some amount of testing
could be done). Of course, they can also have their own "release"
if they wanted, just not be part of this initial train. And so far I have
not seen that Exception Request. So, it is my proposal to rebuild the
Sim. Release with WindowBuilder and BPMN2 Modeler removed.
[And, BTW, the "linux tools"
team told me they had discovered a "memory leak" they would like
to fix. I said normally not "re-spin worthy" but if we had to
re-spin for other reasons, they could include it].
Unless I hear otherwise at noon today
(Monday, 6/13) I will respin the repository with those two projects removed.
The WindowBuilder removal does impact two EPP packages, which Markus is
aware of, and ok with removing for the EPP final build.
Let me know if anyone has any objections
or concerns with this plan. I would announce on cross-project at about
the same time I start the re-spin.
P.S. There has been some discussion,
mostly on Technology PMC list about how to avoid these sorts of "last
minute surprises" in the future.
