As a Planning Council member I'd say if webmasters, simrel, and EPP people can contain the change, then a respin is acceptable.If not, then I would publish a Known Defect / New & Noteworthy doc somewhere (linked from the simrel release announcement page(s)) which tells people how to get the repaired version of Corrosion from its nightly/snapshot/CI site. That way the effort for the fix is on the Corrosion team, not the webmasters/simrel/EPP folks.OTOH, since this is the first simrel release after Photon... does it set a bad precedent / create bad PR if the simrel & EPP packages are not 100% awesome on GA day? If so, then maybe the respin is better than a KD/N&N doc.Adding PC to cc: for discussion & action.NickOn Fri, Sep 14, 2018 at 6:29 AM Mickael Istria <mistria@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hi PMC,_______________________________________________Corrosion suffers from a blocking issue: https://github.com/eclipse/corrosion/issues/131 which was included in the build that's in SimRel.It seems like we'd be able to fix it promptly.So if it's easy and not controversial, we'd appreciate if a respin can happen.But if it's too hard,Corrosion is a low popularity plugin, I expect that most installation come from marketplace (Where we can publish a newer version including the patch whenever we want) or by downloading the zip (which represents 0.5% of all downloads). Also, I believe Corrosion is not business-critical to us as maintainers.The impact of this bug will be bad, for sure, but maybe not bad enough...Affected people will be mostly those who have already an EPP package installed and run an upgrade against newer SimRel. However, IIRC, this process is disabled by default.Should we trigger a respin request process, or just live with a broken Corrosion in SimRel or ... ?
