Re: [technology-pmc] Request for Exception : include m2e-wtp to Kepler M5 aggregator builds - XWT

Some observations.

XWT has a build that they're calling 1.0

The two bundles that I checked in their update site does not have about.html files.

The Feature contains an old SUA (2005). Also references update sites, and the Ganymede update site in particular.
secondaryUpdateSiteName=Ganymede Discovery Site
There is no license in the feature.

AFAICT XWT uses a Buckminster-based build. They do not do appear to be signing anything or using pack200.

There is no apparent download site, and no information on the website indicating how to obtain builds. There is virtually nothing (other than information that I've provided) on the project page.

I think that it was last year that we (okay, I) decided that any project participating in the train had to have done at least one release review prior to the uber release review. There is no evidence that they intend to do this. In fact, there is little evidence that they have done any due diligence to understand what is required of release train participation.

IMHO, they are nowhere near close enough to ready to join Kepler.

Before I formally do this request Yves, can you point me towards the project page and any older releases?

I see that the portal metadata is a bit out of date for the project:

I understand that it used to ship as part of e4, correct?

Also, is the Marketplace entry out of date?

I have sent an email for XWT before yesterday.  



Since we have started the migration from e4 in technology August last year,  we just complete now. The build is accessible via this URL now. We’d like to join the Kepler Simultaneous Release. On behalf of project lead, I ask you kindly to lobby the Planning Council.


Please feel free to contact me if you need further information.



Please request the Planning Council Exception Process[1] to authorize XWT be integrated to the M5 build as well.


Best regards

unfortunately, I was one hour too late when I was granted permission to add m2e-wtp to the Kepler M4 aggregation build back in december.

All my apologies for that.


Now I'd like the Technology PMC to request the Planning Council Exception Process[1] to authorize m2e-wtp be integrated to the M5 build.


m2e-wtp being pretty popular[2], I believe it would serve the user community as well as 3rd party adopters 

to make it part of the JavaEE distribution[3].
