On the topic of "Can new things show up in Sim. Release Service Releases?" ... we have previously agreed "yes". Any discussion?

Juno Release Planning

Juno Dates

Release: June 27, 2012 (fourth Wednesday)
SR1: September 28, 2012 (fourth Friday)
SR2: February 22, 2013 (fourth Friday)

See proposed plan for proposed milestone dates.

Issue: We have a 53 week development year ... 6/22/2011 to 6/27/2012 (due to the way "fourth Wednesdays" fall) ... so what to do with extra week?

  • M7 extra long, 8 weeks instead of 7?
  • M6 longer than usual, 7 weeks instead of 6? <-- my recommendation, so that M6 ends "right before" EclispeCon?

Juno Requirements

4.2 vs. 3.8

We will have 4.2 as primary (hence the one used for EPP Packages) but ask participating projects to have a clear plan item titled, exactly, "Support for Eclipse 3.8 workbench" where possible descriptions might be similar to:

  • Not at all. No support for 3.8 based apps.
  • We will accept bugs against 3.8 based apps, but do not test or compile against it.
  • We will compile against and somewhat test 3.8, though 4.2 is primary.
  • We will support 3.8 as well as 4.2, but the exact functionality may differ.
  • We will support 3.8 and 4.2 equally.

Next Meeting

  • September 7, 2011 (our regular "first Wednesday" meeting, at Noon Eastern).
  • "retrospective" at September meeting.
