DSDP/TM/Face-to-face Meeting Toronto 17-Sep-2007
The meeting is primarily planned as a hands-on coding camp for contributors, with in-depth discussions about current and future TM/RSE architecture and hard problems, also involving looking right at the code.
We'd also discuss planning issues, additions of new components to the TM offering and the TM strategy moving forward (perhaps revising our Use Cases). See the #Agenda below for details about things to be discussed.

For each of the topics mentioned below, one presenter will be asked to prepare and look for possible architecture for the future of RSE. During the meeting, we will explore these prosals right with the code. Naturally, the topics are related to the TM Future Planning page. Attendees can request to add topics to the agenda until Friday Sep-7th.
- Come up with a consistent story around EFS vs. RSync vs. RSE (MartinO) - may be related to RemoteSystemsTempFiles
- How to improve the RemoteTempFiles cache (DaveM): Put it outside the workspace (158770), do not share between connections (193858), allow characters only valid on the remote (160103), support remote names differing only in case also on Windows (160100)
- RSE Logging - what to log and where (196317) (DaveD)
- Architecture and changes for deferred plugin loading in RSE (DaveD, MartinO)
- Hard problems with splitting RSE UI/Non-UI/RCP
- At the time of the F2F meeting, important steps for UI/Non-UI/RCP splitting should have been made in RSE 3.0 HEAD already
- Architecture / Future of SubSystemConfiguration componentization
- We had an idea to split SubSystemConfiguration into static and dynamic parts
- Architecture / Future of Connection Groups and Multicore / Multi-System support
- Architecture / Future of RSE User Actions (Dave D)
- Architecture / Future of RSE Profiles and Team Support (Dave D)
- Architecture / Future of the RSE Details View (Tableview): non-homogeneous contents, table headings, property descriptors
- Architecture / Future of RSE Wizard UI (bug 176490)
- Unify Remote Monitor and Tableview? (DaveM)
In addition to our own project specific agenda, we may be asked to give a presentation to the attendees of the Members and Marketing Symposium, which may be a great opportunity for Community Building.
More agenda items may spring off the
