Minutes

  • Susan working on major UI refactoring
  • Pulling out reusable code and creating basic operation API
  • Currently UI in broken state, working through service configuration problems
  • Private builds: https://build.eclipse.org/hudson/job/equinox_R3_6_api_cleanup/
  • Susan is going to release current work to p2 api cleanup branch and continue working on it from there
  • New UI bundle - reload project sets
  • Multi-agent support available in branch
    • Some parts of p2 still refer to global services but core parts are multi-agent aware
    • Ready for PDE and others to give it a try
  • Queries
    • Should we support notion of visitors on IQueryable?
      • No. If we want to visit results that could be done via the collector
    • Repository could implement collector in a way that lazily returns results to avoid having everything in memory
    • Should we move to a predicate language to describe queries 'over the wire'
    • Concern is that current query API is too flexible and impossible to implement on a remote repository
