Make plans to attend the WTP BOF Monday night. If there's interest, we'll head to our favorite Santa Clara brewery afterwards, or of course, check out the following web services BOF.  :-)
Check out and tell everyone about the WTP Sessions Track.
Add a slide in your presentation to list other WTP sessions or just add a link to the WTP track.

  • John to open action items in a few weeks against components with the most work to do in bugzilla management.

WTP 1.5.4

  • Proposed Schedule - Tim D
03/22 - I-build released

04/19 - RC1 released. PMC will only approve stop-ship bugs during the last two weeks
05/04 - 1.5.4 declared

WTP 1.5.4 is a service release for critical defects, regressions, and adopter issues only. There should be no translation or UI changes, nor should it affect any API reported through the adopter scanning tools.

All bugs must be approved by the normal PMC Approval Process.
  • If there are no objections by next Thursday, consider the proposed plan approved.

  • Do we need a respin due to comments in 172361
Changes to build reporting - There were errors in a JEE5 plugin which were not caught, the build has been corrected, no respin is necessary as the few teams that require these plugins can pick up this week's M6 I build.
John will add a build note explaining this to the M5 build page.
  • New and Noteworthy port to pheonix - Bob F - Port complete. John to add a link from the build page to the new and noteworthy.
  • Problem with Europa Update Site - The WTP prerequisites aren't specified and you have to manually select EMF, GEF, and DTP from the update site. Is this by design? David W - Yes, there is a bug with the Europa update site where it should be figuring out the prereqs automatically. This should be fixed for M6.
  • Please make sure you have up to date test scenarios published to your component pages which include M5 function.
  • Bug lists
2.0 Invalid Targeted Defects <M6 (~23) Please retarget these appropriately.

  • Build Status? David W?
JPA defect - 176048
  • Component Line Item Review
Information about process for milestone bugzilla line item planning has been added to the WTP Bugs, Workflow, and Conventions document.
Bugzilla Enhancements Targeted for 2.0 M6 (28)
All Remaining 2.0 Targeted Enhancements (46)
JPA is technically a separate subproject so they will have different milestone numbers.
JSF should asjust their target milestones to match WTP proper's.
John to investigate adding a more complicated query to capture the JPA information properly.
  • Prerequisite Rhythm?
Our upstream components, mainly the platform, have asked that we more regularly pick up their I builds to provide them more proactive sanity level testing and feedback. Currently, we only update prereqs haphazardly when anyone wants to. Should we get more in a rhythm?
David W - We do a pretty good job stepping up.
John - We can do better. John to put together minimal predictable schedule for picking up prereqs, noting any component can request the prereqs be updated at any additional time.
