Item Owner Target Status
Obtain two mentors Tom 8/15/07 Per new development process rules, we need to obtain two project mentors. Tom has started a list of [http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Mentors potential mentor names. Harm Sluiman has agreed to be out mentor. Tom talked to Harm a few weeks ago. Tom is searching for additional candidate.
Web Meetings Tom 7/17/07 Suggested by Javier. Investigate using web meetings for Aperi. Looked into dimdim.com. Fully functional web meeting tool. Looks pretty, but difficult to install and get running. Had numerous errors, had to restart it several times and the experience was not intuitive. Woud need extensive instructions just to get past the install. Suggest we use IBM webmeetings in the mean time.
Aperi Forum Tom 7/19/07 Suggested by Javier. Investigate setting up forums for Aperi communication. Looked into ibpfree.com. Basic function was there, but the administration was complex and general use did not seem intuitive. Looked into freepowerboards.com Friendly, easy to use, familiar to more forum users. Also includes a chat tool. Set up a sample forum http://www.freepowerboards.com/dhiwa/ Take a look and provide feedback. Would like to set up an Aperi forum there.
Document Control Tom 7/31/07 Write up text for Aperi document control.
Lessons Learned Follow-up Tom 8/03/07 Put results of Lessons Learned meeting for R0.3 into a table on the wiki with corresponding action items
cvs download statistics Tom 7/31/07 Investigate if we can get any numbers for our source code downloads.
