Issues or Exceptions

  • Any issues? Everyone in? Any exceptions known?
Exceptions for projects not in M4, that still will to join Juno:
Virgo approved during 1/05 meeting (from rt PMC list, will be in M6)
BPEL approved on mailing list (as in M5?)
... code recommenders (in by M5, but not in M4?) Did anyone bring them forward for exception?
Issue Resolved (good to know some people read agenda :) ... but, is process unclear? ... Chris? :)
Code Recommenders approved on mailing list (as late for M4, but in my M5).
  • Anyone "dropping out" that should be removed from aggregation build?
I know there are potential, possible issues with Riena (not being in common repo, as _might_ not "achieve 4.2". Discussions on-going.
Anyone else? How to compare "participating projects" list with "b3aggrcon" files?


  • anything to look at? In particular, plans specifying "planned support for 3.8 workbench"?

Juno+1 Name

  • Kepler (EMO has vetted the name ... thanks Chris!)
Guess I should announce? Or do you want to Chris? On committers list?

Other Business

  • Need discussion and decision on "what is allowed in common info center". Pros? Cons? Alternatives? See bug 369395.
  • Thoughts on "Java Development Tools" category? See bug 369258 [Immediate issue has been resolved, but, not many comments ... so, feel free to comment or open new bugs on "categories"].

Clarification on 01/23/2012: the repositories produced and contributed (for Juno and subsequent releases) must use p2 publishers that use greedy='false' by default. See bug 247099 and the p2 Publisher wiki for some history and details on this issue of greedy vs. non-greedy requirements.

  • Project Priorities: Please review and be prepared to discuss this proposed "policy document" about project priorities.
  • Still comfortable with "4.2 as primary"?
  • Anything else?

Next Meeting

  • March 7, 2012 (our regular "first Wednesday" meeting, at Noon Eastern).
