Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • Krum bug 397644 How to contribute documentation
    • Follow-up offline on the bug, fine-tuning the guide and finding a place for it - BIG THANKS to Krum for getting things started
  • John / Wayne : Process Diet
    • Postpone to next month, follow up on the mailing list with initial thoughts, to prepare
  • Wayne : Eclipse Data Centre Move
    • Physically moving Servers on Feb 9, expect to be back up on Feb 10; IP addresses will change
  • Wayne : PMI (Project-Management-Interface)
    • Create a snapshot of the current Portal and put it into the Drupal-based PMI by end of the month
    • Pre-populate data with current meta-info from the Portal
    • System already used today on the LocationTech Forge
    • Please try and provide feedback (Create Community/Project Bugzilla or the AC mailing list)
    • Some Portal functionality is not quite ready yet, eg Simrel tracking
    • Voting in place (can be used) but does not send E-Mails yet
    • Tagging / Search is in place
    • Linking up the "Contributing" box against project-specific "How to contribute" as written up by Krum would be a great idea
    • Statistics from project Dash not 100% accurate (eg when moving to a different company, the new company gets all the credit)

General Topics

  • Eclipse Infrastructure - git, Gerrit, Maven, Hudson, Bugzilla, ...
    • Wayne wants a plan by end of this quarter, to move Orbit off CVS (maybe using Maven, ...)
    • To be discussed also at EclipseCon ... any ideas from AC members ? Please let us know on the AC mailing list
  • Updates from the Board or the EMO
    • Most already discussed; Forges eg for LocationTech due to license allowances
