Proposed Agenda

Members are welcome to edit this Wiki page and add to the agenda before the meeting. Changes (removals) should be discussed on the mailing list.


Review of the Agenda

(anyone have some last minute Agenda items)

Craig: Wants to present idea for WG road map consideration


Review of MIWG Materials

Notes:

    • Working Groups are more focused on collaboration on a strategy level, unlike traditional "projects" which are focused on producing Code.
    • Eclipse provides a defined process how organizations join and collaborate openly
    • 2 Levels of participation: Steering Committee and Members
    • All proceedings are open to the general public



  • Craig Setera (Ideas on long term MADK development) New Agenda Item
    • Current Pain point for Mobile Application developers: Device "Fragmentation"
    • e.g. MIDP, doesnt standardize things like "soft key" key codes.

Developers would benefit from e.g. a centralized device property database There is 2 other projects,

      • Wurfel: a XML DB with questionable licensing, data somewhat outdated
      • J2ME Polish: Data better Licensing questionable
    • This forum could be a good starting point for a new, open, industry wide DB
      • Will start a Email thread to start discussion, get interest & feedback from members


Dino : Charter includes currently 4 areas:

    • MADK (product: base development platform)
    • Roadmap
    • Best Practices: goal to unify e.g. documentation (what/how to document), this could include Craig's proposed fragmentation Database
    • Promotion: Marketing, etc.
    • (Note: Do we need to reflect those areas on the Wiki? create subfolders?)



  • Wiki Overview


Note: (Christian) Clarification of communication medium: for now keep converstaions on Email List, if needed and desired we can explore Bugzilla for "focussed" discussion of an item. Since most people on this list are not working day-to-day with bugzilla, this may be a overhead?? opinions anyone?
