Other business - Long term tracking items

  • The EMO is assembling a "Great Fixes" promotion for Mars which will start shortly after M5.
    • Wayne is joining meeting for details.. Greatfixes promotion details
    • multiple two-week cycles; at the beginning of each cycle, we will pick ~20 bugs, primarily from Platform and Web Tools, and encourage contributors to submit patches/fixes on those bugs over the two week period.
    • We are asking project leads to choose at least 2 "helpwanted" candidates
    • We must be responsive to contributions.(Some work up front - but possibly huge benefit gaining additional contributors).

  • Mars M5 Epp changes - Introduction to the Automated Error Reporting
  • Gerrit adoption
