[oaw-wg] Milestone planning for Xpand and MWE

Hi all,

(I'm sending this to the oAW working group, because you might not yet be subscribed to the EMFT-dev and M2T-dev mailing lists. Please subscribe yourself to these developer mailing lists, if you're not already subscribed there.)

I think you all agree with that there has been too little process for the MWE and Xpand components during the last years. So it's time to introduce some process. For that I'ld like to hold so called milestone meetings. We have such meetings for Xtext and found it very helpful. The main purpose is to review the last milestone and identify bugzillas for the upcoming milestone (as described here . For Xtext we hold it face-to-face, it lasts a whole day, and we always have very deep going discussions. I don't think we can and need to do that with Xpand and MWE, as the teams are not located at the same place and these components are relatively mature. So it would basically be a matter of going through the list of bugzillas and discussing the priority of them via phone.

Between the milestones then everybody can see the TODOs and if you're able to fix a bug or add a feature, all you need to do is assign the bug to you, fix it, and close it.

Of course it is possible to change the target milestone property between milestones. For instance when new bugs come in, which need to be fixed ASAP. It will usually be vetoed by other committers if there's a problem with that.

Any objections?
