Regrets

Agenda

Themes and Priorities for Next Release

  • Further stabilize the foundation of DTP by resolving as many bugs as possible.
  • If appropriate, promote select DTP 1.6 provisional APIs to platform status.
  • Enhance user tools to make DTP a compelling choice for developing data centric applications in Eclipse by providing additional exemplary tools in a variety of areas, including creation of database objects such as catalogs, schemas, tables, columns, constraints, and so on.
  • Enhance DTP to work better in headless and RCP applications.
  • Accurately prioritize and address bugs, especially those having a severity of major or higher.
  • Grow the DTP community through direct contributions and external projects using DTP components.
  • Make DTP easier to understand and leverage, from both the extender and user perspectives.
  • Meet milestone dates in tight synchronization with Galileo plans.

Minutes

Action Items

  • New dependencies need to be approved, especially those across other projects, orbit, 3rd party, or whatever - need to write up as part of the DTP policies and procedures
  • Need to add some policy regarding extension point documentation. Declare that if new extension points are added, they must have documentation by the mid-point milestone.

Tabled for Later Discussion

  • Discuss after Ganymede release
    • Discuss DTP charter change to simplify addition of a committer to two or more subprojects at the same time without going through separate committer elections
    • Perhaps in the future come up with a Component architecture document that shows DTP dependencies to consumers
    • Things to consider for next major release (June 2009) - JDK 1.4 end of life, move to JDK 1.5 in next release? Depends on platform support. Something to discuss going forward
