Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

Contributor License Agreements (CLA's)

  • MikeM: Going Live next Tuesday (June 17th) with the ability to register a CLA with Eclipse.org
  • Going Live Thursday June 27th with enforcing CLA's (commit hooks on Git / Gerrit)
    • Contribution will be kicked out if the Author doesn't have a CLA on file
    • Docs being written right now - been stable on a staging server
  • Before enforcement goes live: Can ask contributors to provide CLA on Bugzilla
  • DavidW: Who has to fill out a CLA ?
    1. Anybody who's not a committer and wants to give any code to Eclipse.org
    2. Committers who want to contribute to another project
  • Rather than asking the "3 questions" ask for the CLA
  • CLA's have a lifetime of 3 years
  • CLA is drafted as "generic" to work with dual/multi-licensed projects, so committers are not required pointing to contributors to unusual licensing (but it may be courtesy to others of course)
  • When pushing to git (or gerrit), each commit in the push is inspected for CLA on file for the Author, and proper signed-off-by flag.
  • "Belts and Suspenders" : Commit needs both, the Author field and the Signed-off-by flag.

EDP Modifications

  • Some whining from projects how much effort the review docs are
    • Walking through the release review docs, Wayne would love to see "This is what the release is all about" ... like

General Topics

  • Eclipse Infrastructure - git, Gerrit, Maven, Hudson, Bugzilla, ...
    • Wayne: Bugzilla Component for AC
    • Default Assignee is "eclipse.org-architecture-council@eclipse.org"
      • AC members can "watch"
      • Intended behavior is that the mailing list is notified of NEW issues or FIXED issues, but not about every comment ... seems broken
      • AI Wayne check the behavior, and investigate
  • Wayne: Test Instance of CLA request for Testing
  • Updates from the Board or the EMO
    • Desire to simplify the process

Action Items

  • Cleaned up old action items, see Architecture Council/Meetings/February 10 2011 for old stuff
  • (old) Tim write up an initial wiki page with information for people to standardize on the tracing API
  • (old) Martin revise the AC Wiki to make it easier to find the New Member Process. More links on homepage. More usage of categories.
  • (old) Martin bug 315210 Make the AC mailing list open / moderated
