Date, Time and Location
- Confirmed: Tuesday 18-Nov 19:00 dinner together at hotel nestor.
- It will be an informal meeting in the sense that we won't make any decisions since not enough members will be available.
- We will, however, have an agenda and chat about a few things relevant to the AC.
- Mentorship: Talk about the rationale, process and advantages of mentorship. Result of the session should be an actual Wiki page about mentorship (somebody to bring a Laptop to edit it?).
- AC Web Appearance: Improve the AC Wiki to have important information better highlighted (e.g. how to report an AC bug, how to ask for a mentor) and make the visual appearance more pleasant. Also, improving and clarifying the self-description of what the AC is.
- Threats of unmanageably large number of dependencies - RT, SMILA and consumed non-Eclipse libraries (Georg Schmidt)
- Reducing Bloat - How to improve re-use of functionality across all of Eclipse
- Interfacing with (L)GPL'd libs - what we can or can't do, and how to approach the Board
- Chat with Bjorn about the "new" vs. the "old" AC
- Improving our Architecture Council/Links Collection
