  • Top Priorities this week:
    • #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 - 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.
    • #3 - Plan RSE 2.0
  • Looking back on RSE 1.0
    • Download statistics
    • Bug statistics - Bug Process Page
    • User Statistics
    • How do you like our processes? Improvements, Suggestions?
      • Bugzilla: All have their personal queries?
      • 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
      • RSE 1.0 Testing - was the effort right? Especially verification
  • Upcoming Work
    • Start IBM and EMO review process for User Actions and Import/Export (DaveD)
    • Start creating Unit Tests, Testing feature (DaveD, Uwe)
    • Continue bug fixing on HEAD (All)
    • Add ISV Javadoc where it is still missing or incorrect; review, and improve all docs
    • RSE 2.0 Planning - Finalize the 2.0 Project Plan
    • Think about limiting the API:
      • Make APIs internal
      • Along the way of updating documentation, and making Unit tests, we'll see some API we want "internal"
      • We should DOCUMENT these for now and DO it soon after 1.0.1
    • New bugs: REVIEW Assigned to Inbox, Status NEW
  • Communications
    • We should have a longer architecture / planning meeting for upcoming "larger" 2.0 changes soon. Possible Dates?
    • DSDP/TM/Code_Ownership
    • API changes: we'll not introduce any api changes between 1.0 and 1.0.1
      • But prepare for API changes soon after 1.0.1
    • Shall we get rid of unused icons, e.g. rse.ui/icons/full/obj16/system390_obj.gif ?
    • Shall we get rid of commented out source code ?
  • Change Requests
  • Vacations, Holidays etc.
    • Kushal - Business trip Nov 9 and 10
    • US Thanksgiving - End of November
  • Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
