In the Modeling Project, we're all about Agile development, so the intent is to make the overhead as lightweight as possible. Consistency while supporting variety.

Galileo Flag

Here's how to identify bugs in your plan.xml using the galileo flag:

  • Committed Items: mark with galileo+, and assign to a reusable milestone, eg. "M1", "M2", ... "M7" or "RC"
  • Proposed Items: mark with galileo+, and assign to either the "---" target milestone, or the actual release version, eg., for EMF, 2.5; for OCL, 1.3.
  • Deferred Items: mark with galileo-

Planned vs. Unplanned

To differentiate things planned up front vs. great ideas added along the way, it's suggested you use the plan keyword.

Group By Theme

To group your plan items by theme, it's suggested that you use the Status Whiteboard. To do so, query for two or more bugs, then scroll to the bottom of the list.

Click the Change Several Bugs at Once link, select the bugs you want to change, and set a Status Whiteboard value for those bugs:

Embedded Queries

Finally, you need to embed queries in your plan.xml. Here's an example.

Gotchas

If your query works in a browser but returns nothing when viewed through the project plan renderer, it maybe be because the renderer is stripping parts of your query. See bug 248672 or this workaround.
