Minutes

Security

  • Security has an API request into the PMC for hints
  • No patch in hand yet
  • Unless its something that we never think we will do, we should just do a patch anyways
  • If it doesn't go in now then it will probably be pushed to 3.5 (we don't normally add API in point releases)
  • The request is to add new optional attribute to an extension point in a schema
  • Could consider having an internal attribute on the schema for now to handle our cases
  • Problem is that there are other providers coming down the pipes who will want to use it

Launcher

  • There is a BIDI bug against the launcher
  • File encoding on the Mac didn't agree with the system encoding
  • Andrew has a patch but just needs to test it
  • Also another bug (223467) about not being able to launch in a DBCS folder
  • Also working on identifying the Sun VM on Linux

Translation Problem

  • There is a problem with translations when they are put in the dropins folder
  • Problem is that the registry has already been started before the bundles in the dropins are resolved
  • So first startup only some things will be translated (only things contributed by commands)
  • Problem is described in bug 230421
  • Can we clear the registry cache when we detect a fragment has been added?
  • Are there changes we could do in p2 to fix this?
  • Tom will take initial assignment and pass it on to Oleg after initial investigation

Bugs

  • If bugs have a 3.4 milestone set, then we need to either set a real milestone or remove the target
