Regrets

Agenda

  • Ganymede review done - one question about jar signing in zips has already been addressed, so we're good to go
  • Short Ganymede videos - status - thanks for feedback, working on script some more and will try and have something recorded by friday so can edit/massage next week (due by 6/20)
  • Ingres status - want to be in Enablement, will review their contribution this week (already mostly meets the UI/non-UI requirement, but has a few tweaks that will be needed)
  • EPP Usage Data Collector Results (http://www.eclipse.org/epp/usagedata/results.php)
    • SQL Results View, DSE - in the top 100 views used
    • SQL Debugger Perspective, SQL Editor Perspective - in the top 100 perspectives used
  • Open discussion

Minutes

  • Things to consider for next major release (June 2009) - JDK 1.4 end of life, move to JDK 1.5 in next release? Depends on platform support. Something to discuss going forward
  • Wonder if EPP would bring up JDK support - what JDK are users using?
  • If Larry updates schema documentation, it's more than a code change -- have to check in, respin ISV jar, and get into Xiaoying's build
  • Plan for branching - send an e-mail to dtp-dev/dtp-pmc today
    • don't check anything in that's not a PMC approved bug for Ganymede
    • after Ganymede goes out, only check in maintenance bugs until you hear further
    • when we need to deliver new feature work, we will branch
  • add Ingres & JBoss to DTP community page (http://www.eclipse.org/datatools/community.php)

Action Items

  • New dependencies need to be approved, especially those across other projects, orbit, 3rd party, or whatever - need to write up as part of the DTP policies and procedures

Tabled for Later Discussion

  • Discuss after Ganymede release
    • Discuss DTP charter change to simplify addition of a committer to two or more subprojects at the same time without going through separate committer elections
    • Perhaps in the future come up with a Component architecture document that shows DTP dependencies to consumers
    • Schedule a "scrubbing" pass of the bug backlog after 1.6 (over the summer) to close bugs that we won't ever fix (minor tweaks, things that have been obsoleted along the way, etc.) to try and reduce the bug count
