Review action items from last call
IP Log info
DJ to give an update on Orbit IP Log info web page generation. (student project)
- no more progress
- make sure we have a generic tool - use with Equinox Bundles and others for instance
- people are gathering information for their own release reviews
- is this required for Europa? not a stop ship
David to give an update of where we are with splitting up the Xerces APIs bundle.
- have to be careful about releasing a bundle name and changing it later
- if they are combined, then we shouldn't name it something that we might want to split it out into later because that would cause problems for people who require bundle
- what about putting the API jars into Xerces and shipping it as one jar for now?
- David to talk to other Europa teams to ensure this won't break people
- do we really need to break the APIs into 3 bundles? (javax.xml, dom, sax)
Summary of source bundle events the past 2 weeks.
- Doc for submitted a source bundle - Orbit Source Bundles
- Ant script is there which does most of the conversion work
- Pascal created doc for adding to your build - Orbit Source Bundles In Your Build
- Problems when you import source bundles as source
- Shape of source bundles is fixed because of the way source look-up works
- Christian to update a new version of the script to the wiki
Jeff to summarize legal info discussions with the Foundation.
- Summary of discussions:
- if projects want to use something in orbit, they put in a CQ in orbit and one in their project.
- the one in orbit is the master (legal approval for the library).
- then any other project wanting to use that project, must enter a CQ.
- ip log info maintained in orbit
- tools-pmc responsible for review releasing the bundles
- delegated to projects using those bundles
- add to ip log which projects are using the bundle and its CQ
- about files to be attached to the Orbit CQ for the bundle and then foundation can sign off on them
- Still need to create a doc and flush out details.
Other Discussion Topics
- create source bundles
