Top Priorities this week

  • Convert Downloaders to Contributors.
  • #1 - Being responsive - on Newsgroup, Mailinglist and bug reports. We'll probably get lots of new users as we have RSE 1.0. Let's nurture our user community and encourage them to become contributors in case they have requests. Make sure that E-Mail notifications are turned on for bugzilla (and probably also the Wiki FAQ etc.)
  • #2 - Plan RSE 1.0.1 and 2.0
  • #3 - Continue fixing bugs and improving documentation - Let's make sure that users who have problems with 1.0 can get a subsequent I-build as patch soon after. Let's make sure users get missing documentation wherever needed. Instead of answering a question by E-Mail, let's fix the corresponding documentation or FAQ and point the users to it.
    • Build Schedule: Will do an I-build on thursday at 8am Ottawa every week. Should we call it M-build?

Upcoming Work

  • Triage your assigned Bugs - Bug Process Page
    • Status NEW --> ASSIGNED (if you are confident)
    • Assign Target Milestones: 1.0.1 or 2.0 to indicate committed fixes; --- for yet unknown
    • Better be conservative assigning target milestones -- it should be a firm commitment
    • Bugzilla: When fixing a bug, please add a short note where it was fixed, e.g. "Fixed in DStoreRemoteFile". This helps tremendously to find and understand the fix, in case it should be needed again later
  • Start IBM and EMO review process for Montavista SSH Processes, User Actions and Import/Export (DaveD)
  • Start creating Unit Tests, Testing feature (DaveD, Uwe)
  • RSE 2.0 Planning - Finalize the 2.0 Project Plan
  • DSDP/TM/Code Ownership


  • Upcoming Milestones:
    • RSE 1.0.1 -- December 15, 2006 (4 weeks from now!)
    • RSE 2.0M4 (with Europa M4) -- January 4, 2007 (3 weeks later)
      • Build system needs to be switched from 3.2.1 based build to Europa build after Dec.15 -- Ted?
    • For more Europa dates, see the Europa Simultaneous Release page
  • API changes: we'll not introduce any api changes between 1.0 and 1.0.1; instead, DOCUMENT the APIs, along the way we'll see what needs to be improved. Prepare for API changes soon after 1.0.1
  • Change Requests
    • Meet 1hr later next week
  • Vacations, Holidays etc.
    • US Thanksgiving - End of November
  • Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
