Minutes

  • Very little response to suggestion of p2 gathering, so we won't bother
  • URI integration
    • Everything updated except p2 UI due to branch work going on
    • All tests pass, added some tests for repositories with spaces in paths
  • UI branch integration
    • Going through manual tests today
    • Still waiting on changes in Platform UI Help>About
    • May add a new menu item for exposing new work without disrupting existing Help>About
  • PDE UI support for patching
    • Currently blocked on an NPE that we don't understand the cause of
    • Some complex multi-patch scenarios that cause conflicts that haven't been pinned down
    • Otherwise on track to release for tomorrow's I-build
    • Next looking at p2 for target platform provisioning
  • Jed's patches
    • Pretty busy until M3
    • Some time allotted between now and M3 for submitting some patches
    • After M3 should be in a position to make a more concerted effort to get patches contributed
  • PDE build integration with p2
    • Want to start using Bundle-Shape manifest header
    • Currently we infer bundle shape from whether '.' is on the classpath
    • How do we handle conflicts between Bundle-Shape header and feature attribute
  • Integration of Apache client
    • Those who have installed it have reported success in cases that failed before
    • No reporting so far of it making anything worse
    • Would like to widen user base to validate that this is the way to go
    • Will raise issue with PMC this week
      • There are other potential users of HTTP client in the platform, so need to figure out what feature it lives in
    • ECF looking at new httpcore API
