[wtp-pmc] WTP release cadence and test impact


My team and I took over the IBM Liberty Developer Tools plugin this year and I wanted to clarify a couple of things regarding WTP. Is there a particular schedule regarding the release of WTP for testing? It seems to be uploaded many days after the GA release of Eclipse - for example right now we have Milestones 1 to 3a, RC1 and R versions of Eclipse available for but for WTP we only have the M3 build as the latest available to us on the mirror sites.

We aim to release our plugin at the end of the same month as the Eclipse GA release which does leave us on quite a tight schedule. I wanted to understand how this might affect our testing - is it likely if we were to run our tests using the M3 build of WTP we would be able to suitably predict any breaking changes? Is WTP only released if changes are made - in which case the M3 build would correspond to the R release? Or perhaps we should delay our releases such that we are able to fully test against the R version of WTP in each case. Thank you in advance for your help.
