  • Project Leader Notes

  • Release Engineer Notes (Todd)
    • Having trouble adding the new bundles for BIRT to the build.
    • Also had trouble with BVN lab – lost connection to our build machine for 24 hours.
    • Suggestion for now: put together a manual build today and continue with manual builds until the automated build can be fixed.
    • Another option was posed that we separate the reporting server build on the side and keep regular build running, however, it was decided by the group to start manual builds now so test can get going.
