PMC (and Strategic) Reps
Any issues or news about SR2?
Criteria and Process
Made current. Added SR dates (exactly one day early that Galileo's to keep Monday to Friday patterns).
Notes: some suggestions made, such as to emphasize the repeating pattern of dates (fourth Wednesday of June, forth Fridays of September and February). Decided to pull 'participating projects' table into its own page.
Was approved, by the 'hearing no objection' method.
Removed 'maturity' requirement. Tweaked capabilities requirement. Added Accessibility requirement per advice of Cross Project Team. General cleanup.
Notes: Some general comments made, but unanimously approved by roll-call vote. (As promised, Ed did follow up with email, and he even approved! :) Oisin and Cedric had to leave call early, before the vote, but I will follow up on mailing list.
One comment was that we might need some "summary" of the requirements, such as a one page checklist. It is believed the eventual "reporting app" will provide this sort of view, but if not we can write a summary later.
Another comment was that Helios itself should have a Retention Policy explicitly stated. Tom will followup with proposed wording.
Another comment was that there is no 'helios' field for projects to mark in Portal. Request was made this morning, and Karl has updated, and it should be on 12/3, after the next Portal update code rolls out.
Proposed (initial) Cross-Project Teams
- John Arthorne (Platform)
- Thomas Hallgren (Buckminster)
Their advice was incorporated into requirements document.
Their work is done. Much thanks to Tammy, Kentarou, Neil, and Kaloyan.
- Tim deBoer (IBM/WTP)
- Oleg Besedin (Platform)
Have decided not needed ... improvement is possible (with work) but not enough interest.
Structure of Common Discovery Site
- users vs. extenders (minimum runtimes vs. SDKs)
- runtime targets vs. tools
- hierarchical categories (are more levels required?)
How to track
- Web App (form based). Need concrete proposal for sizing.
- create (and update) helios container plan (Wayne (re) volunteered)
- coordinate community input for next year's name (Oliver says last year this was started "shortly before EclipseCon" ... so, no rush).
- January 6, Wednesday, Noon Eastern Time.
