[wtp-pmc] FW: [] Eclipse project reviews

Just when you thought it was safe…time to get the “external” release review slidedeck ready. We should deliver these to Anne this Wednesday (June 14th). They are just a slightly extended version of what you prepared for the internal reviews plus a few boilerplate slides.


Here’s the format I would suggest (each bullet point is one slide) based on previous reviews and community Q&A. Feel free to modify – my one piece of advice is not to spend a lot of time making it longer, as these reviews can be rather perfunctory. If you have questions about the format or content, let me know. There may also be some suggestions for Dali coming out of Monday’s review. We can also discuss at the PMC call Tuesday morning, and in addition to sending the decks to Anne, you should also submit them to the PMC for review prior to the public call – minor edits between the deck you give Anne and the final version are ok.
