- New "releng tests"
- Let's do pseudo-translation tests? This coming week?
- Note from eclipse-dev list:
The answer to the discussion topic is that pseudo-translations of the Eclipse SDK are produced every night by the babel project builds. They are available from the babel project downloads page. Simply unzip the pseudo-translation pack into your dropins folder and startup as normal. 1) Go to http://www.eclipse.org/babel/downloads.php 2) Select "Developer and Nightly Builds" at the bottom 3) Select "babel_language_packs" 4) Pick a recent nightly build 5) Pick "Helios", or if you don't see it pick "Galileo" [See NOTE] 6) Scroll to the bottom to find the "Pseudo Translation" section 7) Select the BabelLanguagePack-eclipse-en_AA_*.zip file NOTE: As of today (April 14, 2010), the Galileo stream of the babel build was referring to our map files in HEAD. I have fixed this, so hopefully in the next build you will see a "Helios" build show up. Until then, since the "Galileo" build is referring to our HEAD stream it should work for you.
- Hotbug Policy
- Our plan dates are on 'Friday' of the week. But, we produce and test the build on Thursday of the week, and ideally declare on Thursday. The dates in the Google Web Tools group calendar are for 'Thursdays' since that's a calendar for committers. We give ourselves the buffer to Friday, as our "public" date, that others can pick up our build, just in case a regression is found on Thursday and we have to respin and retest. [Technically, some might say, we still have till the following Tuesday or Wednesday for some "Simultaneous Release" due dates ... but it's hard to do much in that window, without disrupting everyone ... so we'll not use that buffer, except for the worst emergencies.]
