Item Owner Target Status
Obtain two mentors Tom 7/24/07 Per new development process rules, we need to obtain two project mentors. Tom has started a list of [ potential mentor names. Harm Sluiman has agreed to be out mentor. *** Tom is searching for additional candidate. Tom talked to Harm two weeks ago – details below ***

  • Open Forum:
  • Other:
    • Discussion with our mentor, Harm Sluiman:
      • Discussed expectations, logistics, guidance, getting out of incubation, etc.
      • Provided a quick project overview to him. He would like some more detail. Tom will set up a call.
      • He wanted to see our processes for how we define requirements and then create a plan from that and then deliver on it.
      • The main discussion was centered around exiting incubation, which he called “Graduation.” During the review, the Eclipse Review Board is going to look for:
        • an active, thriving, multi company community
        • committers from multiple companies making contributions
        • people exploiting us and building on top of us
        • open communications
      • We need to look for a top level project to join. COSMOS (system management) could be a candidate, but we are ahead of them at this point in time. We do not need to decide today, but we do need to consider where our final resting project should be?
      • Some comments on our home page: We need to have easily findable links to our roadmap, current plan, and release status. Look at the TPTP page for an example.
      • Harm is subscribed to aperi-news. If we want him to see anything, put it there. His userid is
