  • New Member: Dani Megert is now the Eclipse PMC representative to the Planning Council. Thanks to John for years of service. Thanks Dani for volunteering to take his place.

Luna Planning

  • Is there confusion/contradictions about "unreleased components in Sim. Rel. repo"? See bug 411977.
  • Are we "too lax" in versioning requirements? Especially for "maintenance"? See cross-project list posting. [To be honest, I do not recall what specific situation this is about?]
  • I have started scheduling Luna milestones. I think first 4 or 5 will be similar to previous years.
* Appears that timing of EclipseCon in 2014 may effect how M6 is scheduled. It comes "the last week" of what would

normally be M6, instead of M6 finishing first.

* See Luna/Simultaneous_Release_Plan.
  • Can/should Planning Council say projects "should" contribute source to common repo? Or continue to "leave it up to projects" to decide?
See thread around
Possibly bug 414262
[Remember, we should make this decision based on principle, not the one request for an "Ultimate Package" (bug 414025), since a) we should always work on principles!, and b) this package may or may not come to fruition.]
  • Discuss more frequent "(un?) coordinated releases" or updates to common repo or updates to EPP packages. (Doug, Ian).
See Ian's summary at
For some fun reading, I looked up the original bug on how we got to "SR1/SR2" .. bug 227767
  • Doug also wants to discuss him taking over the "releng role" and do aggregation builds using Maven/Tycho.
The focus is still on projects providing OSGi bundles in p2 repos, right? No matter what technology they used to get there?
What type of "input" is required?
What type of "testing" is done that all is well formed and can be installed together and is repeatable?
In particular, how are "IDE" vs "runtime only" components treated separately?
What are concrete advantages?

Progress on Action Items

  • Editing of "Requirements Document"? (Dani and Neil)
  • GSoC project for "Development Channel"? (Wayne)
  • Improved "aggregator examples/doc". (dw -- no progress).
But, about to send out "aggregator builds and streams ready" message ... depending on outcome of other items.
  • [Orbit plan. (dw -- no progress)]

Kepler Retrospective

  • Propose to start in August (if any extra time), finish in September.

Next Meeting

  • September 4, 2013 - Regular First Wednesday Meeting
