RE: [tools-pmc] Mylyn 2.1 did not have a Release Review

I find it personally regrettable that the EMO seemingly needs to be the lone policeman in these situations. Neither Bjorn nor I enjoy the role of traffic cop.


The PMC is supposed to have a role to play in ensuring that individual projects are following the development and IP processes.


Would it be unreasonable to ask the Tools PMC that they institute a process whereby all projects in Tools seek PMC approval before posting a M.N release? If you have another proposal, that would be fine. But I hope you get my drift J

Subject: [tools-pmc] Mylyn 2.1 did not have a Release Review


Mik, Eugene, Gail, Ian, Rob, Steffen, (cc/ Tools PMC)
I noticed that the Mylyn web page announces the 2.1 release of Mylyn as of September 27th. However, I do not recall having a Release Review for 2.1 (looking at the list of completed reviews, I don't see it either). All major releases are required to go through a Release Review, where "major" is defined as M.N. Bug fix releases (M.N.P) are exempt assuming that there are no new features in a bug fix release.  The Mylyn N&N implies that there are new features in 2.1, so it's not just a bug fix release, right?

Thus, either:

  • There was a 2.1 Release Review and I am forgetting it (if so, please provide a url), or
  • The 2.1 Release is really a 2.0.1 Release and thus exempt (if so, please explain why the N&N shows new features), or
  • There was no 2.1 Release Review.

In the later case, you need to remedy that error ASAP. Anne will get you on the schedule in the absolutely next available slot. In the meantime, you should also take the 2.1 release off the website and the download and update site until it has had a Release Review and IP clearance.
