- Welcome new equinox committers
- John Ross
- Glyn Normington
- Borislav Kapukaranov
- Tobias Oberlies
- Discuss regions
- Virgo update and bug bug 336986
- Import/Export stuff
- Special simple configurator for virgo?
- Virgo is dependent on ordering, not sure this will work with p2
- Discussed a bit about provisioning regions
- Tom raises concerns about using all aspects of p2 for provisioning regions
- Would it be better to use p2 to access repositories and resolve IUs and then have custom code that installs the system based on the results from the resolver?
- Tom is getting code ready to put into equinox under Components
- Need to figure out a release vehicle for region implementation
- Tom is not keen on putting it into Indigo
- May need to do a quick release of equinox that only includes the region bundle for virgo release.
- side effect of creating .lock files is bad, especially for read operations
- don't use .lock file, may use artifacts.* file?
- The lock file can change for compressed and not compressed
- Lots of changes
- Decided to add option to turn locking on, but it is off by default for 3.7
- Pascal integrated the new importexport bundle into the build
- New committer Meng Xin Zhu nominated to do ongoing maintenance and development of the code.
