Jeff - Updates in bugzilla.

2. WTP 1.0.3 Status - David Williams
Update Manager site broken: underscores are in some feature version qualifiers

David - Bug 138825 is fixed. New build available at the download site.

2.1 WTP 1.0.3 Build Status - David Williams

David - We need a better way to update the feature version. When plugin version changes, feature version needs to be manually updated.

David - Will try to get the 1.0.3 builds going by next week.

Tim D. - How is 1.0.3 going to work? Any shut down date?

Arthur - We don't want to shut down when 1.5 is shutting down. Really depends on incoming rates. Any requirements?

Tim W. - We need to treat 1.0.3 in a very controlled manner. Every build produced must be stable. We don't want to test at the shut down cycle. The quality should be kept constant from build to build.

2.2 WTP 1.0.3 approved bugs [1] - Jeffrey Liu


Jeff - Still the same approval process as 1.0.2?

Arthur - No. Bugs need to have 3 + vote, 0 - votes. No timeframe.

Ted - There are more bugs targetted to 1.0.3 than proposed to the dev list.

Arthur - We need people formally ask for approval.

Jeff - Do we need a fix in hand before asking for approval?

Arthur - Yes, we need people to test the fix and evaluate the risk of the fix.

Arthur - Jeff, please create a new column in the above document that shows who has voted for the bug.

Arthur - If developers can provide a patch in the bug, that's another way adopters can grab it without a formal release or an entire build.

Ted - Agree, more.

Nitin - Need patch for PMC review?

David - Yes.

Kosta - Can we do an initial triage before we provide the fix? Don't want to waste the effort of fixing it but not getting approval.

David - We can handle that informally. Send an email to the PMC members, etc.

Arthur - Or send a note to the dev list requesting for PMC comment.

3. WTP 1.5 Status

3.1 WTP 1.5 Build Status - David Williams

David - The build is broken. Looks like the JSF build scripts have broke the build.

Arthur - Dali in the build?

David - No.

Jeff - Can we still smoke test with the latest RC2 build?

David - Yes.

Jeff - Shouldn't we just removed the JSF stuffs since they are added at the last minute?

David - Yes, I was surprise to see it there.

Arthur - So the resolution is to back it out?

David - Yes.

David - Teams should respond with go or no go with the RC2 build.

3.2 WTP 1.5 Hot Bugs [1] - Jeffrey Liu


Jeff - Updates in bugzilla.

3.3 WTP 1.5 Hot Bug Requests [1] - Jeffrey Liu


David - We should try to review all the hot bug request before the Thursday meeting. Then we can review the contiguous ones.

3.4 P1 and P2 Bugs [1] - Jeffrey Liu

3.5 Blocking and Critical Bugs [1] - Jeffrey Liu

Jeff - What bugs are release defining?

David - P1 is release defining. Blocking and critical need justifications on why they are not going to be fixed in the current release.

3.6 Bugs to be Triaged [1] - Jeffrey Liu

Jeff - Same process as before? Component leads need to review and assign it accordingly?

Lawrence - Yes.

Lawrence - Plug-in versioning for 1.5 should adhere to the Eclipse verisoning document.

David - Pass RC2, fixes need to be reviewed and approved by component leads. Add a comment to bugzilla.

Jeff - New about.html templates available from Eclipse legal. I've fixed most of it, waiting for some about.html from Adrian Cho. Just a reminder, when creating new plug-ins in the future, please add an about.html in the plug-in.

4. Compatibility requirements - Jeffrey Liu
