What do we want to achieve by explicit code ownership?
- Integrity of the Design: The owner is responsible for a solid extensible design.
- People other than the owner can make bug fixes, but please let the owner know.
- Don't make design-breaking changes without letting the owner know.
- Typically, there is a single owner for each functionality. Multiple "two-in-a-box" owners are only possible if they work very closely together.
- There may be a backup person for an owner, in case the owner is out-of-office.
- Timely Bug Triage: The owner is responsible for reviewing (and probably reassigning) bugs of his area in a timely fashion.
- Helps dispatching new bugs to component owners first.
- Ownership can be for functionality that spans multiple packages (if functionality is seen by user as a single entity).
- Credit for Quality through Visibility.
- Owners of a component should be publicly visible, so they can get the credit for good work.
- Ownership of Copyright and Intellectual Property (IP) issues.
- Component owners are responsible for keeping the IP of their component clean.
Clarification of Ambiguities
- RSE Team Support (Team View, Profiles, Docs, Persistence wrt team support) -- rse.ui.view.team belongs to dmcknigh
- Teamview (better called Profiles View) is its own beast - DaveD to handle this (team is different than the rest) - to be improved by 2.0
- Drag&Drop, Copy&Paste -- closely tied to the views, using view-dependent Eclipse Framework --> DaveM
- Rse.core.filters --> DaveD (Filter creation, UI, change notification etc); filterreferences / view adapters --> DaveM
- EFS - not yet assigned --> Kushal, Backup DaveM
