        • DaveD prefer to have standard NLS strings only

    • AI All file 'backport' bugs for 2.0.3 until end of this week
  • Planning - AI Martin to write up what we discussed in Toronto
    • Think about assigning bugs to target milestones. What goes into 3.0 and what not?
  • Eugene new committer
  • Can we commit to support Java 6 (just runtime)?

    • Kevin: Discussions fine so far, not touched the code yet?
    • Martin: Would like to get more dynamic information onto the homepage in an automated manner e.g. automated release notes with milestones. Avoid merging errors if starting work end this week.
  • Bug Fixing - Remember our 2-fix-per-week / 3 unittests-per-milestone plan

  • DaveD's lazy init done. bug 217556 ServiceSubSystem

    • Existing code that checks whether something has a service needs to be changed: AI DaveD Find references to IServiceSubSystem
    • bug 217894 Subsystem Configuration Families - subsystem category would be orthogonal to subsystem family -- family would be related to connector service -- AI All comment on the bug
    • Import/export connections rather than profiles - extend the persistence provider for import/export. Use a profile that only contains those things relevant to the exported elements, and merge it on import (or instantiate + copy).
      • Uwe: Contributors may have their own format for import/export already
      • This is maybe related to bug 160403 Filters should be connection-private by default
