Re: [tools-pmc] GEF 3.9.0 Release Review

Hi Dave,

I am using the new automated release review materials that was created by the Eclipse team.

I was under the impression that we are were supposed to move to this, but perhaps not, as some projects are still using the "old" way of sending around pdf files and whatever else they want.

The information I provided is exactly the same as what other projects have provided. Some projects have more than GEF in their automated review materials perhaps, some releasing projects have plenty less if not nothing in their release reports.

Anyway, the GEF project cannot possibly be dead as we did the busy-work (as you call it) to produce a release.

I certainly don't object to GEF releasing, and maybe I need to adjust to this new streamlined process, but the release review materials makes it look like a dead project.
No bugzilla reports ... no mention of of mailing lists or other community activity ... I am also surprised the difference between GEF, Draw2d and Zest components are not described; just to name a few.
So, don't mean to sound judgmental, I know we all want to minimize busy-work, but I'll abstain until I see a few more reports and get a better understanding of what's expected.
