Quality Focus Items (Neil)
- Focus Item:
- Untargeted severity "Major" and higher bugs opened before March 1st, 2010 (Current: 30)
- Target to a specific release or "future" if planning to fix but not in the next release
- Adjust severity as appropriate
- Previous Focus Item:
- Untargeted bugs with patches attached opened before March 1st, 2010 (Current: 14)
- Mark invalid patches as obsolete
- Target bugs to a release or "future" if not a current release
- Old Bugs
- Triage to WONTFIX if no further action is planned on this item (or at least mark as "helpwanted" if you don't wish to change the resolution of the bug)
- Set a target of "Future" or a specific release/milestone if you do plan on taking on this item in the future
- Ready to declare latest build?
- Accessibility checklist required by end of M6 (at latest)
- See Category:WTP Accessibility
- In particular, our summary report WTP/Accessibility/Helios/webtools
- As bugs are fixed, please use <del></del> element to "strike out" bug number, so there can be an ongoing record of fixes, especially for "planned" items. Please update individual reports and summary, as you do so.
- No response to mailing list question?
- So, please _do_ search for "old" accessibility bugs and take those into account on reports.
- Reminder: be sure to check "language on page" (e.g. see bug 306105 and bug 306109). It is "new this year". Are our "help" documents compliant?
Remember we need to ramp down!
- M7 04/30
- RC1 05/14 (followed by weekly RCs, if needed)
- Final WTP 3.2 build 06/10
- (06/23 Helios Release)
See "references"  for detailed explanation of what these dates mean.
- We'll soon have new, multiple versions of javax.servlet.jsp in our stack. 2.0 (from Platform) and 2.1 (from us). See mailing list.
- Or ... is this be something that should be "picked up" from servers associated with a project?
- Discuss EDL (vs. EPL). While Board approval is required to use EDL, The Board has given blanket approval for "samples and templates". Any interest? Ability this release?
- "Runtime only" builds should not have any "source code" (including java, xml, html, jsp, etc.). If it does, it may be intended to be used as an example or template specifically intended for users to modify for their use. If so, Eclipse Distribution License (EDL) would be appropriate.
- Hotbug Policy
- Our plan dates are on 'Friday' of the week. But, we produce and test the build on Thursday of the week, and ideally declare on Thursday. The dates in the Google Web Tools group calendar are for 'Thursdays' since that's a calendar for committers. We give ourselves the buffer to Friday, as our "public" date, that others can pick up our build, just in case a regression is found on Thursday and we have to respin and retest. [Technically, some might say, we still have till the following Tuesday or Wednesday for some "Simultaneous Release" due dates ... but it's hard to do much in that window, without disrupting everyone ... so we'll not use that buffer, except for the worst emergencies.]
