WTP 3.2

  • Planning (initial plans due on or before first Milestone)
See http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/wtp-dev/msg07100.html
For general directions, you can use the 3.1 Project Plans reference.

Schedule

Need to re-consider schedule to be based on "+2" dates, these are just "end dates" for the Helios Milestones, we'd be a few days earlier. Which would mess up our Friday rhythm :(

Also, need to put 3.2 and 3.1.1 on same calendar, and see what kind of trouble that causes.


The intent is to "line up" with first four milestones of Helios Release. Our 3.2 work will also be input to any Helios builds.
M1 8/21
M2 10/2
Initial standard-format plans due 10/2 -- for WTP 3.3!
M3 11/13 Start 3.2 Rampdown and PMC Review
M4/Release 12/18

Other business

  • It was asked if bugs have been open for all retrospective action items yet (answer: no) as there is still concern about builds taking so long (there are bugs to improve builds).
  • There will be a new "Community Forums" front end to newsgroups. It will be even more important to make sure descriptions for our WTP groups are clear, even for the "casual user".

To improve descriptions associated with newsgroups via Eclipse Portal: Use the Portal > Eclipse Projects > [view] > [maintain] Project Info Metadata > newsgroup Mail has been sent to webmaster asking how to handle subprojects which re-use 'eclipse.webtools' (i.e. do we need to repeat description? Provide a different one?)
