- Karsten: Is the platform strictly necessary to get started? - Consensus was yes for operations, but we could get started in terms of testing.
- Karsten: Who has signed so far?
- Each representative shared their status: SAP == Signed, CA Technologies == Signed, IBM == Coming any day, Inoopract == Coming any day, Oracle == Coming any day
- Bosch has provided a P.O. to invoice against for LTS.
- A company to be named has offered to donate significant money to support CBI & LTS. (More on this soon)
- Red Hat has no plans to sign as an LTS member but has contributed heavily via. code contributions to the CBI efforts.
- Andrew shared there is an additional handful of organizations lining up. Also, from the EMO's perspective, the strong handful we have is enough to get started. Agree with the team that September is a much better time to formally launch & PR.
- Karsten: Which projects are LTS ready
- Andrew: Please see: http://wiki.eclipse.org/LTS/Projects
- Karsten: When can we get started with the infrastructure
- Andrew: Juno SR2 - Feb. 22, 2013 is the planned go-live date. We'd welcome testers any time. cbi-dev is perhaps the best list for them to join and reach out on.
- Andrew shared that similar to Polarsys, LocationTech (Strategic) members receive LTS premium at no additional charge. A handful of additional companies will likely participate based on this.
