Minutes

  1. Overall project, releases, etc.
    • Next builds, releases
      • 5.0 Indigo - PTP 5.0.2 (SR1 release) was Sept 23; 5.0.3 now being built. A few bugs fixed since then. Next release sometime prior to SC11.
      • 6.0 E4.2 Juno status - builds (Greg)
    • Download stats - as of 10/11 Downloads of EPP parallel package are 7679.
      • as of 10/17 (when these minutes were entered), Epp parallel package downloads 9135, indigo update site 1687, ptp update site 980 = total 11,722 (but I believe the update site count is cumulative since Indigo initial release)
      • Download prior to SR1: on 9/19 package downloads 6137, indigo update site 414, ptp update site 821 = total 7372
      • Package download counter on eclipse.org/downloads was zeroed out for SR1 (confirmed with webmaster 10/26/11 by BRT)
      • So total package downloads 6137+9135=15,272 +(update site downloads = 414+821=1235); 15,272+1235= 16,507 grand total
    • Transition to Git (Roland)
      • Reference: CDT git tutorial and docs available at http://wiki.eclipse.org/PTP/environment_setup/git.
      • Bug to track: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=349695.
      • How many repos do we want? Probably 4: 1. PTP core, 2. Photran, 3. docs (non-plugins) and 4. old stuff
      • We should have a live demo meeting to demonstrate git processes to committers etc.
      • Git transition (copy from CVS) preserves branches and tags
      • Wyatt remarked that git doesn't handle binary files well. Roland suggests using wiki for such files.
      • Roland will start on test git repo; will document how to move over.
  2. Status Reports
    • Synchronized Projects (John)
      • Updating wizard, tool for merge conflicts, NFS fixes when deleting project (turns off sync during delete).
      • Sync remotely generated files or now? Now they are syncing back to local project. Long term solution is probably ability to select which files get synced (filter) e.g. in project properties. Preferences setting could specify default behavior... by file extension?? file type??
    • Monitoring - incl. new System Monitoring Perspective (Claudia)
      • working on filtering, tables, support for Cray.
    • ETFw (Wyatt)
      • Wyatt working on remote enabling in HEAD. Testing on shallow app. Can backport to 5.0 branch for use in SC11 PTP tutorial.
    • Photran (Jeff)
      • David Alexander has unit test development for Photran to contribute
      • photran-dev mailing list to be shut down - low traffic. use ptp-dev instead.
      • Greg reported demo'ing Photran on a large customer app, approx 6K Fortran source files, about 16KLOC? Sync worked well. Indexer ran in about 5-10 min (after increased heap space).
    • Docs, Help, Tutorials
    • Other PTP contributions
