Review action items from last call

IP Log info

DJ to give an update on Orbit IP Log info web page generation. (student project)

  • Where should the file be generated?
  • Needs to be copied somewhere on the web site to a static URL so it can be referenced.
  • GMF creates it dynamically - see what they do
  • Action: DJ to put a link off the downloads page for now.


Is there anymore work to be done here or are we done for now?

  • done for now

Build Promotion

When are we "done"?

  • does orbit have a "release"?
  • consumers want a stable build that doesn't go away
  • should we change the prefix to be R?
  • "release" has special meaning so might want to use something else (recommended, reproducible)
  • are we enforcing that everyone in Europa is using the same build? - unfortunately it is a "should" and not a "must"
  • how do we handle rebuilds from down-stream components? - re-build until ready
  • Action: David to change the build to R. (don't call release though).


Are we ready for Europa? What is left to do?

  • excluding JARs from being packed - bug 191868
  • Action: David following this bug to ensure closure before Orbit build promotion.
  • the old JCraft can't be consumed since it was signed but then an about.html was added
  • Action: DJ to remove jcraft 0.1.28 from Orbit (and send note to mailing list).
  • encourage people to include abouts in signed JARs and if they don't have them, then we will have to add them and re-sign the JARs
  • Action: DJ to create a checklist for pre-built bundles in Orbit.
  • Action: DJ to send note to cross-project-dev and orbit-dev lists telling them to verify build contents before promotion.
  • abouts have been updated - check your bundles in the latest build
  • have checking done by Wednesday noon EST, and then build will be promoted
