Main Agenda Items

Release news/planning

  • Follow-on releases no longer called "Service Release" - now indicated by number (Oxygen.1)
    • More flexibility for new features in these releases.
    • WTP has been flexible for new enhancements in SR releases, but announced and PMC voted as appropriate
  • Oxygen release planning

WTP 3.9.0: Oxygen

3.9.0 Schedule

  • RC4 declared. Quiet week. June 28 GA.
  • Components tag R3_9_0 in Git.

3.9.0 Builds

WTP (3.10.0): Photon

  • Once your git repository is tagged for Oxygen, you can start to contribute content for Photon to master
  • Builds for Photon will commence later this summer
  • Releng update (Rob Stryker, Nick Boldt)
  1. common builds as-is
    1. Rob provided a patch to remove dep from common on server. Will need testing
  2. servertools has 3 repos. Rob has a script to merge all 3. But because of deps from servertools tests on jeetools, we need to re-think this. integration profile, etc.
    1. servertools tests (which are really integration) tests can run successfully when resolving against the whole product. servertools itself builds fine in a clean env.
  3. jeetools is next in line, and i only fiddled a bit with the tests. most of which are fixed by changing eclipse-plugin to eclipse-test-plugin.
    1. jeetools needs a patch to respond to those changes in common to break dep on server.
    2. Rob didn't work too much on jeetools, but Rob senses a repo-merge will probably be necessary with ejb and other stuff. This hasn't been investigated much yet.
  4. Nick has updated the wiki pages which list repos, so they're as accurate as possible. This provides all three ways to explore the repos:
    1. (authenticated clone for use with Gerrit)
    2. (anon read-only clone)
    3. (online browsing)
