  • Top Priorities this week:

      • Suggestion: Weekly release candidates each Friday, release as soon as we have a "go" from all committers
      • Shooting for Oct.27
      • Exit criteria: all P1/P2 bugs fixed; defer bugs to a service release?
      • Discuss pros and cons of an early release
  • Upcoming Work
  • Communications
    • Missing / Incomplete Copyrights - fixes look good, please use UTF-8 as character set for projects
    • Code Ownership - DSDP/TM/Code Ownership - DaveD to edit (for self).
    • Questions from ESE RSE Demo:
      • File locking? No locking mechanism yet. May include synchronize perspective in future releases. RSE will detect remote file changes, though.
      • How do you write agents?
      • Is there any tools support for writing agents? Not yet. TPTP?
      • Any standardization of agents between projects? Not to our knowledge. TPTP?
      • Can I share a connection with a debugger? Yes, but you will need to build some smarts in to support this.
      • If the connection to the target system is lost, can I continue editing, reconnect, and then synchronize?
  • Change Requests
    • "Remote Shell" -> "RSE Shell" ? Implications for other views?
  • Vacations, Holidays etc.
    • Martin - 1 more week until Oct.23; public holidays Oct 26, Nov 1-2
