Re: [wtp-pmc] Issues with missing CQ entries...

I can access that page, itself, and I can "see" some subsets of "webtools", like "webtools.incubator" "webtools.releng" (the few I tried), but if I select "webtools" itself in the long list of projects, I am asked to login again. That's what made me think it was related to committer rights. And, I'm guessing it is the "webtools" "container" project that has the interesting long list of oddities.

Any committer should be able to access this page. You should be able to access it.

Please confirm: can you access this page?

I can't "see" that report ... my guess it my committer ID was removed from the "umbrella" group, as well as the more specific groups?

But in researching it, I discovered that we, webtools, have the first 8 CQs ever put in the IPZilla database ... how's that for a dubious honor? :)

While I can't see the report, I see that "webtools area" is defined as

I think in the past we've only focused on "what we release" which would be what's under

So, it wouldn't surprise me if there was stuff up there that we never really 'released' and was put up there before "we" knew what we were doing [such as for the tutorials, tests, build tools, etc.] But, agree with Wayne (Wayne is always right, correct? :) that "anything on downloads" should be IP Clean ... and we've just never scrubed it ourselves, but sounds like Wayne is now.

Without seeing the list, hard to know what to recommend ... if to "get rid" of some of the old stuff (leaving a polite webpage in its place, explaining it was removed due to age) or to push ahead and get CQ clearance (eventually) even though its not stuff we "release".I'd lean toward the former, but ... without seeing the list, I would not follow my advice :/

Naci might know about some of the tutorials/education material and if any of that is still useful/valid?

Hi everyone,

Wayne emailed me earlier today as he was browsing through our IP log submission, and discovered potentially a large amount of
third party libraries that are not tied to CQ's.

If you follow this link:

Along with the large amount of test or sample files that are included in our junits or documentation, we also have many files that may need attention  (axis, ant, commons, derby, jsr*, wsdl,  etc...)

I'm going to send a note today for everyone to take a second look at this particular report.

David - Since most of these "problems" are ancient file references, Is this a case of missing CQ entries?   do we simply need to map them somehow?

Thanks - Chuck
