[] Fwd: [cross-project-issues-dev] Trivia #47: How many years has there been a Simultaneous Release on the fourth Wednesday of June?


Please see details below on how plans for the Helios coordinated release are starting to take shape. In particular, please ensure that the information about participating projects is correct (e.g. is UML2 Tools really going to be on the train) and make sure you are aware of this year's list of requirements.

Ha, trick question! Only 2. Prior to Ganymede, they were on the fourth _Friday_ of June.

But, we are well on our way to our third (or ... fifth), Helios, scheduled for release on June 23, 2010.

The Planning Council has published their detailed Plan for Helios,

Which includes the ever popular "requirements document",

There are some tweaks still required, a few reference links to improve, but the substance is accurate.

I have copied the previous "participating projects" page from last year, to serve as a starting point,

And, sorry, but with the editing tools I had, I could not "move rows" in the wiki, and preserve the hyperlinks that people had so painstakingly put there. In fact, I'd hold off making too many fancy edits to this page ... it may undergo other large "reorganizations" in the month ahead.

But, its a start!

So, what's new this year? Well, those are mostly marked with "[new this year]" and there's not many. But the "requirements" have been written to try and better explain why something is required. (In fact, I wrote so much, some have already asked for a summary. :)

There is also a new emphasis on streamlining the release reviews, by having more data "rolled up" as much as possible, so be sure to check with your Top Level Project on how your projects will address this.

There will be information about "build" improvements and a "reporting web application" in the month or two ahead, but other than that, if anyone has any immediate questions, feel free to ask.

Anyone "new" this year interested in joining in?
