[eclipse.org-committers] Ganymede Provisioning Workshop -- Call for        Participation

Announcing the Ganymede Provisioning Workshop

April 10th and 11th, 2007
Montebello, Quebec

Please take a moment now to look over the call for participation.  
This event is in the style of the Europa Build Workshop which is  
agreed to be a worthwhile event.  We would very much like to have  
broad participation from Eclipse projects. We appreciate your prompt

Note: Ganymede is another moon of Jupiter and will be the release  
train that follows Europa.

Eclipse has long had Update Manager as its provisioning mechanism.  
Now over five years old, Update Manager comes from the era that  
predates OSGi, where Eclipse was a static tooling platform, Eclipse  
as a Rich Client Platform had not evolved, and where we could get  
away with assuming considerable computer skills in our users.

This workshop brings together committers from interested parties to  
evaluate current provisioning initiatives, project shared ongoing  
needs, and sketch an efficient and practical roadmap that leads to  
quality enabling solutions to provisioning problems.

-------- from planning council minutes ---------

Committer-Centric Workshop Ideas

The Planning Council declares that a workshop around the update  
manager would be a good thing. The build workshop was successful  
because the problem required a cross-project solution. The update  
manager isn't quite the same because it doesn't require a cross-
project solution, but it is needed by all the projects thus many are  
eager to help.

This workshop will be for people who are intending to become  
committers on the update component. This will not be a requirements  
gathering event - this is an event for doers: people committed to  
being committers.
