1. Deep Dives om technical areas (some suggestions but not inclusive) - Identify common workflows - Security issues - Mobile - Browser compatibility - Language Tools - Server implementations - Integration
2. Orion Project Proposal - John Arthorne - What is the project scope, what is out of bounds, interested parties
The goal of this meeting is to produce a project proposal to start a separate project for Orion at eclipse.org. The project proposal will determine the initial committers of the project.
We are also very happy Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer will be able to present to the group on what they have learned and what they would like to see in a modern Web tool platform. Ben and Dion have a ton of experience in this area so we are glad to have their participation.
We can circulate draft versions of the project proposal on the mailing list beforehand. We would like to use the meeting to socialize and get to know each other, form a consensus around scope and direction for Orion, and dive into some initial technical discussions around the various work areas.
The concrete agenda is TBD based on the work areas and the participants who show up for the meeting.
In no particular order. Please add new work areas you'd be willing to work on as appropriate.
