Agenda

  • Equinox in other places.
    • Are we missing opportunities to make Equinox cool
      • Equinox on Android, in the cloud etc.
      • What can we do to make the community attractive.
      • What about e4?
      • Can we create incubator projects for things like Android?
  • Equinox SDK features
    • The p2 feature includes p2.tools (is this dead code)
      • Tom to open bug to remove this.
    • What can be done in PDE to provision to targets. It complains about missing package expected from the VM bug 272750
      • We are using the slicer, Pascal describes transitive closures and strict dependencies at build time. The slicer uses strict include mode. This explains why we don't have the jre IU in the sliced repos.
      • PDE could use the permissive slicer or create a profile (they picked the profile approach)
  • Equinox Executable feature lists all fragments by version
    • Should we make the executable feature use more loose versions (0.0.0)? May introduce some incompatibility because it would be possible to build with the old exe and a newer library.
    • Discussed the topic of updating the exe on Windows. Need to do a move of the exe first.
