11.08.2006 Conference Call
Scott Lewis, John Casey, Dennis O'Flynn, Glenn Everitt, Wendell Beckwith, Thomas Hallgren, Paul Styles, Henrick Lindberg, Marcin Okraszewski, Pascal Rapicault, Mitch Sonies
There was a spirited discussion about the meaning of 'project model':
- What kinds of projects are to be considered (software development only and/or others)?
- What kinds of project-related meta-data should be included or excluded (e.g. project team membership, tool-specific data, build/deploy/sw lifecycle processes, testing, team communication processes, etc)?
- How does Kepler include rather than replace existing tools?
- How does the Corona work on general 'context container' fit into the generalized notion of a 'project model'
There was agreement that
- Kepler will be focus on defining and implementing a more general notion of project model
- Kepler will look to provide integration of existing tools rather than replacement
- Kepler will include committers and contributors from other Eclipse projects, including (but not limited to) Buckminster, Corona, ECF, Platform. Not all committers will be expected to make frequent code contributions.
- Once the project has been officially started and provisioned Kepler will have regular online and f2f sessions to make progress toward a generalized project model. These sessions will include all interested parties
