* (''old'') '''Michael''' to flesh out the Patterns idea and remind the EAC -- started [[Architecture Council/Top Ten Recommendations#Design Patterns]], backed by EclipseCon tutorial proposals
 
** While these show how well-known GoF patterns are applied in Eclipse, Michael's idea was more to find and describe new patterns which are specific to Eclipse

Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • EclipseCon - any architecture related talks planned?
    • Martin wants to do an API Tutorial, anybody want to join?
    • AC Panel - AI Martin send invitation to ac mailing list
  • Kim: Platform Builds and Tests at Eclipse.org - anybody got a Mac they could donate? See bug 329830
    • Test parallelization on multiple machines all done by Hudson... test-job for each target arch kicked off as soon as the main build is done
    • AI Wayne to bring mac mini to Denis
  • Maven and Group ID
    • Wayne: Slingshot - something like the Helios repository but optional to join, exposed as p2 and Maven repository
    • Do we need Eclipse.org code on Maven Central, or is it sufficient to host a repo at Eclipse.org? Don't want to have another IT burden at Eclipse.org
    • Jeff: Don't care what the solution is, but there should be consensus or we'll mess up our consumers. AC should be involved,
      • We had a conclusion, but looks like didn't get the word out.
      • AI Wayne commenting on the Thread
  • Hudson reliability
    • Better than last year but not perfect yet ... still a slave needs rebooting couple times a week, but issue does seem to get sufficient attention
  • bug 324125 architecture diagrams - 2006 version - relationship to e4 ?
    • not yet - AI Wayne extract arch slide onto AC Wiki
  • Build systems requirements - Antoine, Dave C
    • PDE Build, Tycho, Athena, Buckminster, b3 ... ?
    • Still some confusion... there was a Build Symposion by Nick, Henrik and others at ESE...
    • Google Doc spreadsheet around, updated recently (missing info for Maven, but got info for Tycho)
    • AI Martin get in touch with Nick / Henrik
  • IP Logs - Martin and Wayne
    • Martin sent E-Mail to Wayne with consumer requirements for IP Logs ... Wayne's Woolsey project likely going to meet these (auto-gen logs)
    • AI Wayne to follow up and create bug reports against Woolsey
  • News from the Board, EMO and Councils
    • Board meeting happened at ESE, but no public notes yet

e4 - current state of affairs

  • PC / Release Train Relationship to Eclipse 4.0
    • Martin: TM/RSE runs on Eclipse 4.1m3 ... encourage using 4.1 as development env and have nightly builds run against Indigo/3.7
    • Very easy to set up, ensures source compatibility against 4.x
    • Just download the [Eclipse 4.1 SDK], then Install additional dependencies via p2, then open your existing workspace
      • Or physically copy your workspace to a new location for the 4.x host and open it there
      • Over all a very positive experience
      • AI Martin to blog this
      • What will be the recommendation when we release 3.7 and 4.1 in parallel ?
      • Dave W: 4.1 will not be a beta but kinda "secondary" e.g. no EPP packages directly for 4.1, but allow easy update from 3.7 EPP to 4.1
      • Projects to report on their plans for 4.1 (test on it / compile against it / exploit it in any way)
    • No official data about what works / doesn't work on 4.1 (eg Mylyn is known as one of the more problematic); some NLS issues (BIDI support? unsure about the amount of support).

Action Items

  • Martin revise the AC Wiki to make it easier to find the New Member Process. More links on homepage. More usage of categories.
  • Martin bug 315210 Make the AC mailing list open / moderated
  • Antoine / Dave C bug 316642 Requirements Wiki for build systems
  • others, see as AI above
