- Top priority this week is getting started with the "big rocks" in bugzilla, for RSE 2.0 Planning
- add unit tests for all new or modified API
- document API changes:
- ALL API changes need to have an associate bugzilla item tagged with [api]
- At time of API freeze, we will search all [api] bugs and generate migration docs (manually out of them)
- When making an API change, not only look at the code but also look at ISV docs
- Text search for package names or class names
- Usually javadoc is sufficient - there are rare cases where overview is affected as well
- RSE 2.0 Planning
- Plan not made yet, but looks like everyone is working on proper items already. Martin to finish plan items this week
- Think about limiting the API: Make APIs internal along the way of updating documentation, and making Unit tests, we'll see some API we want "internal".
- DaveD: Is there a tool that looks for cycles in package reference graph?
- Michael: Lattix - shows dependencies as a matrix
- Martin: API Scanner from the WTP project
- Vacations, Holidays etc.
- Michael travelling next 2 weeks
- Kushal busy with IBM until Jan.19
- DaveD going to Chicago end of the month; Florida in February for a week
- Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
- DaveM to meet Martin regarding EclipseCon, will need quite some time
- DaveM to meet DD folks in Toronto
- Last Meeting Action Items
- DaveD - Refactoring UI/Non-UI; Persistence; Bugs & Unit tests; New bug for moving DTD.
- DaveM - Meet Martin re. EclipseCon; Bugs & Unit tests; API for setting timestamp & permissions
