Minutes

  • Discussion of supporting source repo information in bundles
    • Leaning towards putting information in manifest
    • Header would work like version header, developer must have entry with special value for PDE build to generate
    • bug 243582
  • Build.properties work coming along
    • Finishing up compiler/source location synch
    • Moving on to encoding settings
  • Target work has some progress
    • Available in the "target_api_changes" branch of pde ui and core.
    • Current code supports metadata generation for locations, new api. UI and tests have not been updated.
  • Discussion about having a global (external to workspace) p2 data area
    • Would give performance benefits to users who switch between multiple workspaces, saves bandwidth
    • Safest place for now would be somewhere relative to the running Eclipse's p2 data area (sibling, child?) or relative to the configuration directory
    • Could allow it to be user configurable, but changing areas dynamically could cause problems, avoid doing this for now.
    • bug 295896
  • API Tooling continuing to seek out performance enhancements
    • Looking to take advantage of State persistence/caching
