My original sending of this note eventually
"bounced" due to wrong address ... so I think Naci has already
hinted at some of the answers :)
but thought I'd resend as a reminder.
= = = = = = = = = =
Well ... we've (barely) made it past the Eclipse base M5 initial upgrade,
and in a good position for the
final upgrade when its available this Friday ... this is a reminder of
how tight the timing is.
So ... please no more "routine" API breaking changes! no more
untested feature/map file changes!
Plus, Naci ... can you confirm if you will be able to update build to final
M5 and baby-sit build machine
on (your) Saturday? Sunday? The Eclipse infrastrcuture is planning changes
this weekend, so not sure it will be that
dependable. [I'm not really asking you to work the weekend :) ... just
to let us all know what the plan is,
since final M5 Eclipse is scheduled "for Friday", I'd assume
it'll be after your end-of-day on Friday.]
Also, Naci, can you remind us (or post on web) what the exact build schedule
is for builds next
week. (I think you recall you have a specific proposal for a build every
other day, but dont recall,
and don't know where to find details). This might effect when teams focus
on testing, and when they
focus on submitting fixes for serious bugs.
Also, I'd advise no changes to the version of pre-reqs (GEF, EMF, etc.)
unless a component knows
of a specific need or bug fix that would require an update. (just for simplicity
Reminder of remaining deadlines:
2/16 - TODAY!
2/18 - Friday, Final Test Plans and new mini-tutorials for new function
Milestone, from each component team (please
update previous tutorials where
changed, include some regression testing on
but focus on new function just added -- and
remember, no need to wait until this
final deadline if you can provide earlier!).
2/18 - Friday - Final Eclipse M5 due
2/19 - Saturday, move up to final M5 and pre-reqs (can build team can work
if so, I suggest one person from each component
team be available on weekend to
keep them company, and sanity test the results,
to be sure there's
no serious issues that would prevent further
final testing during the week)
