|[wtp-pmc] Fwd: Deadlock bug in Eclipse Webtools 3.8.2 (latest release in Neon.3) - affects JBoss Tools 4.4.4, Devstudio 10.4, Fedora 25+, and RHSCL 2.4|
Dear PMC Members,
As Bug #511793 (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=511793) is a blocker issue affecting the m2e-wtp and Fuse Tools projects, RedHat would request 3.8.x maintenance continuation or making a patch release in order to backport the fix [that is available as a patch] into 3.8.x (Neon) stream and provide the working solution for Neon users.
Thanks in advance,
-------- Forwarded Message --------
Recently discovered a nasty deadlock bug in Eclipse Webtools 3.8.2 . 3.8.2 was planned to be the final release in the Neon.x stream - Neon.3 dropped last month as the final simultaneous release.
We've already moved Fedora 25/26/rawhide, RHSCL 2.4, JBoss Tools 4.4.4.AM2 and devstudio 10.4.0.AM2 to include these latest Neon.3 updates, so all 4 products/projects are affected.
This deadlock bug impacts most of JBoss Tools/devstudio, including m2e-wtp and Fuse Tools, so we're hoping we can get Webtools PMC to approve a 3.8.3 maintenance or patch release.
@Victor, can you escalate this problem to the rest of the WTP PMC to get this moving?
@Joe/@Kerri/@Honza/@Vaclav, what's the latest we can push a fix into the RHSCL 2.4 Beta/CR bits before it goes GA on April 26?
@Tim/@Martha/@Jeff, the latest we can update the JBT/devstudio target platform in preparation for the 4.4.4.Final/10.4.0.GA builds is May 9, but a few days before that is ideal so more testing/verification can occur. Alternatively we could provide a patch feature in Red Hat Central, or patch webtools ourselves and provide that in our target platform. Upstream is preferred, of course.

https://issues.jboss.org/browse/FUSETOOLS-2355 (Fuse Tools bug caused by upstream)
Note also that Fedora 26 has a Beta Freeze on May 2, so getting this in there beforehand would be ideal.
