Colour Legend:

    •  : nothing blocking, no stalled gerrit requests, good communication between releng and project committers/lead, ready to be aggregated
    •  : nothing blocking, no stalled gerrit requests, good communication between releng and project committers/lead, some (optional?) work to be done
    •  : some blockers or stalled gerrit requests, delayed/difficult communication between releng and project committers/lead, dependency problems (-Pintegration workaround)
    •  : unstarted work, work blocked by upstream, blockers or stalled gerrit requests, delayed/difficult/no communication between releng and project committers/lead, circular dependencies to the resolved

Gerrit requests

The following requests have been sitting for more than 2 weeks with no response, or have been reviewed but not merged. Help me help you!

These requests are affecting downstream consumers (eg., JBoss Tools):







  • Blocked by above merges/builds
  • TODO:
    • (?) complete merge plan / decouple circular deps; script merge, apply merge
    • verify tests run
    • cleanup sourceTemplate folders




  • Figure out how to collect all the test results into the releng.aggregator job, or a new JUnit collection job
  • Figure out why org.eclipse.wst.server.core is not present in the aggregator builds, but IS present in the servertools CI builds
    • what other missing plugins/features are there?

Jenkins migration

Bug and Feature Highlights

Focus on Quality

  • Improve:
