WTP 3.2.x ?

From previous meeting ...

  • As we ramp down for 3.2.3, some WTP (sub)projects are considering having subsequent, longer term maintenance releases for 3.2 stream. Enough subprojects so that we will refer to it collectively as "WTP 3.2.4" (and maybe even "WTP 3.2.5"?) even though it may not literally be all subprojects that participate or have changes.
  • Too early to plan dates or details, but would need to be done in a way that doesn't interfere with Indigo or its maintenance releases ... which implies months like May? August?
  • Being mentioned now, to be sure all committers that want to participate (or not) know what is being discussed. I'd say it would be fair to create bugzilla targets of, say, "3.2.4" -- if that helps bug triage -- and if turns out we do not have subsequent maintenance releases those bugs could be re-triaged to more appropriate targets. Perhaps the triage itself will help decide who, if, or when to participate. But please don't triage blindly ... only use targets for bugs that highly desired to be or relatively sure to be in that target.
  • Stay tuned. I'd estimate these plans to become more concrete over next few months.

WTP 3.3.0

Planning

  • Standard Plans are done (right?)
  • I did (just today) change section in overall WTP plan about 4.1 support.
Was:
Certify compatibility with e4
WTP should certify its features on the e4 platform using the e4 compatibility layer.
Changed to:
Eclipse Platform 4.1 Support
WTP will support 4.1 as a secondary platform (while 3.7 will be primary platform). This means we will occasionally compile against it, or use API Tools, to make sure we are in API compliance with the 4.x compatibility layer. Committers and community will occasionally, but informally test with it. It will not be a fully tested platform. If the bug occurs only with 4.1, we will accept bugs as valid and prioritize along with bugs against 3.7 based builds. but will request submitters to try and reproduce on 3.7 first. We will not exploit anything specific to the Eclipse 4.1 Platform.
  • Any anticipated IP requests that do not yet have a CQ Open? (Deadline is coming up ... February 11?).
  • Be sure to plan for possible Ant 1.8.2 adoption in M6. See bug 335494.

Other business

  • Nitin reminded our release engineering team to get 4.1 builds working again. They said "soon". :)

References

  1. Hotbug Policy
  2. 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.]
