Re: [tools-pmc] Tools PMC discussion items

Reorg'ing the repos is a good thing but do be sensitive to the affects on rebuilding.  for example, i fyou move a mess of stuff around and break the builds for Ganymede maintenance, that is not a good thing.  Some care should be taken.

Thanks Anthony, all great items. Some comments:
1) Yes, even with CDT we have everything in the org.eclipse.cdt folder now and should be able to remove the old cdt-* folders we have there. The only other ones that are trouble are the Cobol and VE projects, which we are taking a close look at the moment anyway.
2) Sure. I'm still not sure what brings all these project together under the Tools PMC anyway. I'd say part of this exercise would figuring that out.
3) Good point. It would help us track issues.
4) Well, the truth is we haven't had that many meetings... But with Bjorn on board, I think we're reinvigorated enough to have them more regularly.
And thanks for your interest in joining the PMC, I'm not sure what are plans are yet but will let you know.

Subject: [tools-pmc] Tools PMC discussion items

Hi Team,

I have a couple of Tools PMC discussion items and it has turned into a couple more. So here we go:

1) CVS cleanup.
We have discussed this in the past, but for Galileo we need to make this happen. The top level /cvsroot/tools is a dogs breakfast of folders. If we look at /cvsroot/modeling, you will see what we need to do. (GEF has an orphan folder in there was well).

2) Tools icon and branding.
Most of the other top level projects have a branding icon that shows up in help + about. I propose we do similar branding. We can also look at improving the tools website.

3) Bugzilla for Tools PMC
I wanted to raise Bugzillas for (1) and (2), but I had no idea how to create the Bugzillas. We do not have a top level tools Bugzilla component.

4) Tools PMC wiki
I knew we had tools PMC meetings, but could not find the minutes, they were on the PMC Dev list. We should post these on the Tools PMC wiki.

Back to the last tools PMC meeting you had on Aug 26, you state in the minutes that you were looking for New PMC membership. I am interested. I am willing to take the lead on all the above four items I am interested in on behalf of the GEF project.
