- Do we need a feature patch in webtools/helios/repository for bug 321602. Is it a blocker? (in effect) Is it a regression? (since which release?)
- Is a regression since Galileo ... just not noticed in Helios initial release. Starts to effect performance with as few as 3 or so projects. Will investigate.
- [No action yet]
- Final? status of archived repo: I did separate code and tests repositories, zipped repos now distinct.
- p2 infused builds, taking info account "history" of previous builds is nearing completion. See WTP/Build/Accounting_for_history_during_builds.
- committer-to-committer question on XML Schema Content Model API?
