Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • Feel free to fill in, but not during the meeting :)

Development Funding

  • Wayne: Development Funding
    • Funding stuff that's common and critical for the IDE - So far: p2, Marketplace, ...
    • Umbrella bug 471462 looking for Priorities ... Javascript situation partially inspired the initiative, but not sure if that's P1
    • Looking for Process to do this

EDP Update

  • Wayne: Blocker bug 463857 - please look at the bug and give feedback, are we targeting the right things ?
    • Some runtime work seems unnecessarily hindered by the EDP; simplify project creation, release reviews, continuous integration
    • Would like a complete rewrite - much effort but probably doable
    • Need a final form by mid October
    • Wayne would write the draft, but need direction first and input after the draft (and help writing sections would be appreciated)
    • HOWTO docs are too big currently ... hopefully trimming the EDP will trim the HOWTO as well
  • Max: Would like to encourage (or at least allow) faster release cadence - what's the minimum necessary that needs to be done for release ?

Hackathon Concept

  • Wayne: bug 471463 looking for a list of bugs that could be resolved in 2-3 hours
    • Want to get back to a habit of marking bugs bugday or similar
    • Focus people on what we need them to do ... turn more people into contributors
    • Perhaps there's many bugs that stay unadressed since we feel we'd need to get together in a room
      • For example, have LaunchBar and Docker work totether
      • AC to identify 4 "hard problems" that we'd plan addressing during EclipseCon as a "development experience"
        • Encourage the right set of people to come to the conference and participate
