Announcements And Reports

Focus on Requirements Planning (Raghu)

  • Minutes:
Raghu:
willSend out a note to dev list today
have defined the steps, July 24th, similar process, tracking using wiki, simpler, enter bugs for the bugzilla, standard format, using bugzilla as main feature plan

WTP 2.0.3

Schedule

June 27 - M build
July 3rd - RC1 build
July 10th - RC2 - Final build
July 11th - 2.0.3 GA
  • Minutes:


WTP 3.0

WTP 3.0.1

  • Guideline
In general, the minimum requirement is that if you branch a plug-in, you need to branch all the plug-ins in the corresponding map file. This is to make it easier for others to know what to load, to "be current" in a maintenance branch. It is fine to branch everything in a sub-project if you choose to, but still need to correspond to what's in a map file, and the map file should be updated to explain what it's used for. Map files can be re-organized some, if that helps make it easier to organize and understand what teams are working on what.
The names for branches should follow the pattern of 'R3_0_maintenance'. This will be the name for all 3.0.x maintenance work (not just the first, 3.0.1 maintenance work). Note that JSF and JPA code may use R2_0_maintenance, but their map files, will still be branched using R3_0_maintenance.

Performance Focus (Kaloyan)

Kaloyan:

We need to address the problem with a team. Current tests don't run, and can't without significant investment.
How to proceed? Does someone else want to take on the task of running the performance tests?
Should we form a cross-project team (one person from each subproject) and meet, discuss, and decide a course

of action? For example, perhaps our efforts would be better spent starting over, with something simpler in mind?

API Tools/Scans (Kaloyan)

Kaloyan:

Our official 3.0 has adopter breakage report ready.
The report will be run for every 3.x and 3.0.x declared build.
Do you we need the report for the 2.0.x declared builds?
  • Minutes:
DaveC and DavidW: will look into diff reports
No progress to report, yet.

Other business

Project leads: please fix meta-data during July. Especially, see "information about ..." from your subproject web page left nav bar.
Changes coming to IP Log management (more automated, but more for Project Leads to do?): See http://wiki.eclipse.org/Development_Resources/Automatic_IP_Log
In the works: Proposal to adjust bugzilla so bugzilla "products" match our subcomponents (currently have 4, need about 8?)

Release Review Requirements References

IP Log

  • In general, Project leads should review our IP Log for completeness and correctness.
  • non-Committer Contributions
* bugzillas with contributed patches should be marked with contributed keyword
* There are some WTP IP Tools to help explore potential contributions.

Copyrights

  • Make sure copyrights are up-to-date and according to Eclipse Foundation form:
See Default Eclipse Foundation Copyright and License Notice

Check for "license files"

  • Check 'about.html' files exists
  • are valid
  • have correct "layout" in directories
  • References:
In the general eclipse legal section
http://www.eclipse.org/legal/
Is one page that speaks to the about files directly
http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl/about.php
In particular, note there are two that refer to literal HTML only versions, to use as your starting point.
http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl/about.html
http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl/longabout.html
Also, please read
http://www.eclipse.org/legal/guidetolegaldoc.php#Abouts
It goes into detail about the locations, needs for plugins and features, and also mentions that third party content requires a seperate license file.

Focus on Backlog and Quality metrics (Neil)

Current Focus Item
  • Options are
  • Target bug for a release or "future"
  • Mark as Invalid or Wont Fix
Upcoming Focus Item
Past Focus Items
  • Invalid - Enhancement does not fit with the scope of the project or is already implemented.
  • helpwanted keyword - This is a valid request, but due to committer resources and other priorities, outside help will be needed to make this happen.
  • Future - I would use this in conjunction with the helpwanted keyword. I use this for legitimate requests that are important but will not make any planned release, but likely will make a future release.
  • Before July 1st, 2007 - 21
Where did they all go?
  • Minutes:
Neil: will focus on untargeted enhancements again after Release of 3.0
