Announcements And Special Reports

retention policy

Dave Carver mentioned that Arch. Council will be publishing some new recommended bug-triage process. He'll post details to wtp-dev. The idea is that projects have a consistent approach so that the community of bug reporters understand the different states and processes. Hopefully it won't be anything too out of line with our current process.

Schedule

Our initial schedule was based on Platform's proposed schedule.

The official "must do" schedule is the +2 category in the Galileo Simultaneous Release.

Normally, our milestone are one week after the Platform's delivery. Exceptions noted below.

3.0.1 Early Maintenance Release Aug 15
M1 -> Aug 22 (extra week added so not to overlap maintenance release)
3.0.2 Coordinated Maintenance Release Sep 24
M2 -> Sept 26 (extra week added so not to overlap maintenance release) (updated)
M3 -> Nov 7 (short milestone, since "making up" for added week above)
3.0.3 Early Maintenance Release Nov 14
M4 -> Dec 19
M5 -> Feb 6
3.0.4 Coordinated Maintenance Release Feb 25
M6 -> Wednesday, March 18 Feature Complete, API Freeze, UI Freeze, NLS, Accessibility
(EclipseCon March 23-27)
M7 -> Tuesday, May 5 Performance tuning, documentation, bug fixing
RC1 -> Tuesday, May 19 Serious bugs only, focus on stability.
RC2 -> Tuesday, May 26 WTP may not participate in an RC2 (based on based on previous years, RC2 comes too soon, needed more fixing effort, less testing)
RC3 -> Tuesday, June 2 Very serious bugs only.
RC4 -> Tuesday, June 9 Very very serious bugs only.
RC5 -> Tuesday, June 16 Hopefully no changes from RC4. Prepare web pages, update sites, etc.
GA -> Wednesday, June 24

Other business

Bob Fraser and Nova the look and feel: (see bug 261721)

Good progress on getting ready/moving to Nova and simplifying. We should re-look at our "people pages" and see if we can use something that is more built-in to Eclipse. (I heard at one point, Eclipse Foundation was working on something similar).
