[wtp-pmc] Plan for moving to M3 based builds?

I think Jeffrey reminded us we didn't even have a plan for when to move to M3 (Eclipse 3.2) based builds,
(And in fact, Tim might have tried too last week, but I'm not sure we let him finish. :)

And, I think we have in fact had such a plan, just not very public, and not very crisp. So, let's chrunch on following, and see
if it tastes right.

From previous Note from Tim W.:

11/4/2005       M3      +1      +2      WTP/TPTP/BIRT join train

Which means we, WTP, would "join the train" on 11/18.

Funny, but our WTP M9 is 11/18 :)  I'd like to recommend we begin M3-based
builds on 11/21, thus having our first M3 based I-build
on Friday, 11/25 (allowing the usual 1 week of warm up, even though there's
two day's of holidays for us here in U.S.).

While we will be VERY busy with the final stages of Release 1,
I think that'd give us some time and some hope to fix any easy and obvious bugs with base M3 by the
time we release 1.0 (for 3.1.1.) on 12/15.

12/16 is the time base M4 comes out, so that should also make our adoption
of M4 less painful, and would be nice to have some statement "that only moderatly
tested, but our 1.0" works on M3".

Of course, none of this official "join-the-train-via-builds" rules out individual
developers or community taking an "early" look, pulling our code into
an M2 based environment, and fixing things or making changes so that
things are compatible for both 3.1.1 and 3.2 stream -- but, so far, know of
no need to produce a build prior to 11/25. Guess that would be our
"Thanksgiving milestone" ... if that's not too "American" :)

Any thoughts? I'm assuming this is still plan for Eclipse Train.
