This is the first OSGi Specification Project call held at Eclipse.

BJ opens the meeting.

Question: what do we do with existing OSGi Compendium R8 specs that are in-flight?

We need to create issues for each of these specs in the project which point to where the work is going on.

Requirements, design and API will be done in a branch on the main osgi/osgi repository. Requirements and design will be done in Markdown or Asciidoc files on this branch. People can file PRs on these and they automatically get rendered by github.

[after meeting edit: diagrams can be included via plant uml embedding in either format, see for an example]

Action for everyone involved in an OSGi R8 compendium spec chapter:

create a pointer issue for your spec in flight
Tom suggests to post an agenda in advance of this meeting going forward.

Meeting finished.

Next meeting: Wednesday October 31st, at 1400 UTC (correct for your own timezone / daylight saving time)
