Attending: Joanna, Eugene, Paul, Oliver, Kathy

Any objections to last weeks summary?

  • no

Does anyone need to promote agenda items?

  • Paul has some timing constraints (in the car)
    • Wants to talk to 4.5.2 and 1.4.2 JVM support
  • Eugene is ill and would like a brief meeting :-(

4.5.2 Finalization

  • Paul started a test report before he left office
    • 89% attempt 2-3% fail rates
    • Some tests reporting as not yet run are are monitoring/etc items that should be trimmed from report
    • doctest results needs checkin
      • There was a question (Kathy) about why need to run these again
      • Joanna noted they were not 100% done before and you have to do 100% on final test pass of release anyway
      • In general, can do doc smoke tests on selected milesones though
      • Joanna and Kathy will sync on this
  • There were trace.arm test question for Richard from Eugene
  • Test project has no new issues. Ready to drop there
  • Platform doc smoke tests more or less okay (some old defects and 1 new one that will be fixed in 4.5.3)

We had a formal vote on the following deferrals.

  • Unanimous acceptance

Paul wanted to mention special kudos for rampdon on 4.5.2

  • Unanimous acceptance

1.4 JVM support

Paul notes that in 4.5.3, 1.4.2 breaks because of how Galileo works

  • Could build with old EMF and run with old or new EMF
  • Another component has this issue now (BIRT). Are verifying right now that can build on old and run on new
  • There seem to be issues with this approach
    • RE would need to build for us that does Eclipse 3.5 with old BIRT, etc.
    • No guarantee that it will work even if they do it.
      • If project is backward compatible as it should be it will work.
      • If does not work then will go back to BIRT and ask for backward compatibility
      • We don't have too many dependences on BIRT so it would be a shame to lose 1.4.2 over this

Do not have a solid answer back from IBM stakeholders about whether 1.4 support is really needed? Kathy working on it.

  • Two different questions
    • Do data collectors need to support 1.4 VM
    • Separate question from whether 1.4 is needed on workbench for the views
  • Models running on AC and models running on workbench have to be consistent
  • planning council said that release train does not require any specific JVMs
  • Need to understand in the 4.5.3 timeframe. Any more discussion on 1.4 JVM

Build Servers

IBM mentioned that some new Eclipse policies about source bundling for builds (P2 repositories) makes it desirable to consolodate builds to one location.

  • Wonders if Intel is interested in consolodating
  • Chris mentioned that Intel had thought thru this a while back for solving some ofthe networking problems
    • Intel might be able to find some Itanium systems to donate to the cause
  • Action item to Chris to follow up in Intel and close on whether this is feasible
  • Would like to roll it out over next few milestones.
    • If possible would like to get done for M6 (sometime in march)
    • By then should at least have a plan

4.5.3 planning in general

Joanna put together 4.5.3 approximate schedule Our task now is to define P1 defects

  • Cathy suggests moving all P1s targeted to Future to P2 then we can cleanly look at P1s targeted to our release
    • Targeted ones should be seriously triaged

Oliver would like to be conservative

  • Test project was quite conservative before too. We need to be careful as we have new defects identified during process.
    • Paul notes he went in with 70% of time committed for 4.5.2 (30% flex for new stuff).
    • Oliver suggests maybe even as low as 50% for 4.5.3

UI and API changes needed by Mar 6 deadline

  • Cathy (IBM), Chris (Intel), Eugene (Community) to probe their teams for P1 4.5.3 defect areas
  • Need "need list" from consumers
  • Map resources to create "can do" list
  • Iterate with consumers to create P1 list.
    • Next week we hope to debate about what P1s can get done.



  • Oliver said that room reserved
  • Chris to borrow a projector.
  • Intel to follow up on final attendees
