Reminders for extra testing
- Use 4.1 as base, of our Indigo deliverables known incompatibilities
- It's a good time to update tutorials, and in general all website content needs updating - Are you pointing to project overview? Is it up to date?, Highlighted new features in release?
- Coming to a city near you! - Try to attend Eclipse Indigo Demo Camps
- Should we, WTP, have more direct connection to Mylyn reporting ability?
- See bug 347261 - "Report Bug or Enhancements ... " is missing products
- 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.]
