Agenda

Current Work

  • Skype Call Quality
    • Excellent for everyone today (7 participants)
  • Code and Branching
    • continue working on HEAD; Martin can merge fixes to maintenance branch
    • If a fix is a candidate for M-builds, please attach the patch on bugzilla and let Martin know
    • Releasing into the M-builds is not painful for Martin but may be painful if not done before; Instructions are on Bug 205297 comment 11
    • N-builds good for now, no need for I-builds
  • Committer Calls frequency
    • keep 2 weeks
  • Planning - AI Martin to write up what we discussed in Toronto
    • Project Plan tbd; Xuan won't send notes because stuff is on the "Future Planning" page anyways.
  • Bug Fixing - Remember our 2-fix-per-week / 3 unittests-per-milestone plan
    • DaveD is positive to hit the fix rate, hopefully more
    • Deadline today at IBM for non-opensource stuff, should be better afterwards
    • DaveM will merge some dstore specific stuff
    • Migration going forward without too much help from core openRSE team
  • Reminder: BugDay next Friday (October 26)
  • DaveD: - vacation - bug 202630 new meaning of "default private system profile"?
    • taken some time to check Terminal on the Mac
    • compile error in HEAD! Cannot compile on the Mac! protected VirtualCanvas.getBackgroundColor() does not override private Control.getBackgroundColor()
  • DaveM: - bug 187739 exists() method in the SystemViewElementAdapter
  • Kevin: -
  • Xuan: - any stuff involving NLS need to be finished by M6 (end of march); docs freeze is June 27
    • Platform re-releasing 3.3.1 -- Martin: If Europa is updated, TM will also have updates there from the M-branch.
  • Javier: - n/a today (will look at bug 199773 FTP upload as binary)
  • Martin:
    • Mostly been working on Terminal / M-builds
    • bug 202416 Question for DaveD: NPE when loading profile: made it more robust, but how could it come that RSE profile data is wiped with zeros? What happens when an IOException occurs while saving a profile, can it become corrupted or is there a safeguard?
      • DaveD: Never seen an exception - exceptions are logged but profile save fails silently; there is no recovery
      • Martin: Potentially inform the user about exceptions during save; workspace on NFS drive is not recommended; perhaps fall back to different file name
      • Profile save is below UI layer - would need new API allow catching exceptions!
      • --> Filed new bug 206640 - could perhaps register with the Manager
    • Was at ESE2007 - good attendance at TM talk;
      • SAP (link to slides) making Memory Analyzer available for free now, a great fast tool for analyzing heap dumps
      • Xuan was not sure how to send a "stop" signal to a remote server process (Martin: do ps, then kill -QUIT process_id)
  • Uwe: - working on commercial product
  • Rupen: - bug 204307 Should listFolders(IRemoteFile parent, String fileNameFilter, IProgressMonitor monitor) passing a null FileNameFilter parameter, be dealt with in the same way as listFiles and listFoldersAndFiles. This would require that all folders are returned by assigning a '*' to the fileNameFilter as oppose to leaving it null which is causing a NPE whenever listFolders(IRemoteFile parent, IProgressMonitor monitor) is called. This will require a javadoc change as well.
    • DaveM: should be treated the same, accepting patch
  • Michael: - n/a
  • Questions

Vacation, Away
