Given that there is a process that requires a release review that
aren't following (I assume because they aren't aware), I'm really not
how an additional process will help with that. It seems many groups
to make this same mistake at least once and Eclipse has a whole
lot of rules that tend to change rather frequently. It seems the
solution is better education, better mentoring, better information
more rules to deal with rules that aren't being followed is kind of a
circular problem generator. But hey, that's just my opinion...

The PMC is supposed to have a role to play in ensuring that
projects are following the development and IP processes.
Would it be unreasonable to ask the Tools PMC that they institute a

release? If you have another proposal, that would be fine. But I hope

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
September 27th. However, I do not recall having a Release Review for
(looking at the list of completed reviews, I don't see it either).
major releases are required to go through a Release Review, where
is defined as M.N. Bug fix releases (M.N.P) are exempt assuming that
are no new features in a bug fix release. The Mylyn N&N implies that
are new features in 2.1, so it's not just a bug fix release, right?
There was a 2.1 Release Review and I am forgetting it (if so,
provide a url), or
The 2.1 Release is really a 2.0.1 Release and thus exempt
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
the schedule in the absolutely next available slot. In the meantime,
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.
