WTP Development Status Meeting

Other business

  • Reminder that we (or, many of us?) will be moving to daylight saving time soon, on 3/13.
  • Assuming/proposing there be no status meeting, in two weeks, 3/24, due to EclipseCon, but that we will still have declared builds as usual.
  • Build releng changes:
- Changed wtp4x (Eclipse 4.1) builds to run only once per day (if changes to source code). Since, it is essentially a "test".
- Hope to soon run unit tests with Eclipse 4.1 as well. Initial, local builds showed no new problems.
- turned off custom access rule handling in batch build bug 325066. This doubles number of access warnings, from 60K to 120K warnings. Either amount is unmanageable. Turning off saves a little time during build (20-30 minutes?). Feel free to discuss/dissent in {bug|325066}}.
- added a "fast fail" check, if serious errors detected in log, such as a problem doing a cvs checkout, or similar. One problem is that if there are no serious errors, it results in a lot of red "Result: 1" messages in build log notices. Will need to write our own ant task to overcome that (and other Ant limitations). Issues documented in bug 339166
  • 1.2G cbi-wtp-wst.jsdt still shows up in "disk usage report" ... was a bug ever opened, for webmasters to remove that workspace from 'master'?
  • Other ?
