Minutes

  • Some major changes in engine, would like people to use the latest N-build to sniff test it before the integration build
  • Will p2 support installing old platform versions? How many versions back will we support? Should we have an N-2 policy like PDE?
    • Hard to say right now because there are on compatibility issues yet
    • Problem should be somewhat easier than PDE experience, since we now have metadata to describe the contents of the different configuration files in each version
  • PDE removing p2-specific feature and bundle, merging into main pde bundles
  • Need to review SDK features to ensure dependencies on p2 are non-optional where necessary
  • A reminder that next week is M3 week. Likely a warm-up build on the weekend prior
  • If all is going well next week, we'll plan to have a test day on Wednesday next week, devoted to writing new automated tests and increasing test coverage
