Next meeting: July 5, 2018.

Main Agenda Items

  • New_Help_for_Old_Friends_X migration guide needs some updates from:
    • wsdl2j update? (Keith)
    • BREE changes in Source Editing (Nitin), taking longer with complications from the repository re-org, expected Saturday
    • others?
  • Tag Repositories for the release
    • Releng repos, too [Nick: On what date should this be done?]
    • Suggested tag name: R3_10 or R3_10_0, project lead's choice (see below) [Nick: Could we move to 3.10 tag and 3.10.x branch, so these values align with BZ versions?]
    • R3_10_maintenance branches may be created, although we expect not to use them (see below) [Nick: Could we use 3.10.x?]
  • New and Noteworthy
    • Send Nitin screenshots and verbage for 3.10's new features. JAX-RS 2.1, advanced source lookup, and Java EE API JavaDoc should be advertised!
  • Releng Lead Nick does not have commit rights to Web Services and Source Editing. Project leads can log into the Portal, select the [view] link for your project, and nominate him after making sure you can find at least 2 other people to vote, or the election will fail. :D

WTP 3.10: Photon

  • Release pages will be streamlined more in keeping with 3.9.5's.
    • New and Noteworthy will be worked into the release page itself, although we might reconsider creating pages per-milestone.
  • It is time to triage any open bugs still targeted for 3.10 to a future release like 3.11.

3.10 Schedule

6/11 3.10 RC4 build RC4 build
6/15 Photon RC4
6/27 3.10 and Photon GA

Reminder 1: PMC approvals are needed for bugfixes in RCx releases.

Reminder 2: If applicable, please add a section to the New Help for Old Friends page.

WTP 3.11: Eclipse SimRel 2018.09

  • We're going to 11!
  • After a year of quarterly service releases that allowed for API additions, the Planning Council is switching the simultaneous release to quarterly "minor" releases, and WTP is going with them, barring any reasoned objections. FAQ
    • API additions can happen in each release
    • API deprecation to removal timeframe will remain 2 calendar years
    • The "simrel" update site URL will remain the same going foward
      • Should we establish an unchanging milestones site URL?
    • It's incumbent on projects to test and make sure their contributions to the simrel repository work.
    • Shortened release intervals and fewer RCs mean higher scrutiny on late changes
  • Bugzilla naming suggestion: Put the simrel into the Version that's reported against, keep the Target Milestone simple as before (3.11, 3.11 M1, etc.) so that bug queries don't get too complicated.

Tentative schedule is for 13 weeks, 4 cycles per year:

  • one week decompress and plan
  • (3) three week milestones
  • one week RC1
  • one week RC2
  • one week quiet and release
    • [Nick] suggest we do one meeting every 3 weeks (one per sprint / milestone) scheduled for 1 week before the +0 release day.
    • M1 candidate on 7/13, devel meeting on 7/05
    • M2 candidate on 8/03, devel meeting on 7/26
    • M3 candidate on 8/24, devel meeting on 8/16
    • RC candidate on 9/14, devel meeting on 9/06

3.11 Builds

3.11 Releng


After Photon is live:

  • Tag projects for 3.10; create maintenance branches
  • Update wtp.releng.* projects for 3.11 builds; set new baseline in parent pom
  • Rename jobs from _R310 suffix to _master since we probably won't need to do maintenance builds for 3.10.x with a new milestone every 3 weeks and a new .Final every quarter.
