Minutes

  • Translations
    • Still slow to view installed software
    • Could turn off for 1.0 if unacceptable speed
    • Need to check behaviour when disconnected
  • Mirror application
    • Work in progress, hope to have something by Wednesday
    • Need to decide if it should be added to the SDK
  • Delta pack
    • Can we get p2 to manage the delta pack for people using it in their target?
    • Delta pack contains bundles that are not applicable to the profile, so they are ignored by the planner
    • Could create an IU that unzips the delta pack using native touchpoint, but doesn't install bundles
    • This is no worse than previous release, but a bit late to improve in 3.4.
