Agenda

  • Short introduction (I would like to get to know new people a little -- Boris)
  • Reduce noise in bugzilla by closing obsolete bugs. There seems to be a lot of them, making it hard to know where contributions would be most helpful --Matthew Hall
  • Priorities for 3.4 (Boris' suggestion)
    • Improve documentation
    • Sheperd existing (and new) contributions into the codebase, hopefully resulting in new committers
    • Add sought-after features such as
      • convenience API for creating bindings
      • more reusable validators and converters
      • cell editing support and nested attributes in tables
      • support for trees?
  • Cross-observable (i.e., mutually dependent) validation constraints (mentioned in bug 197807 --Matt Carter; working code will be posted soon). e.g.
    • One or more observables in a set must have a value assigned.
    • Value required for one observable if another observable has a value assigned.
    • Values required for all observables in a set if any one observable in the set has a value assigned.
    • Value not allowed for one observable if an any observable in another set has a value assigned.
  • List of open bugs we want to tackle for M4, and 3.4 in general (Need this to focus my scarce time on the important issues -- Boris)
