  • Project Leader Notes:
    • Aperi webinar
      • Our July 11 webcast has been posted to EclipseLive
      • It is currently the first one under the ‘Most Recent’ category. It should remain in that category for a week or so until it gets bumped by more recent postings. After that, you can find it here: This will give us exposure to a much larger audience and Eclipse Live automatically counts the number of views. The Aperi home page as been changed to direct people to the Eclipse Live page
      • 75 views as of 08/06/07 8:45 am
    • SAN Simulator contribution
      • With the imminent loading of the SAN Simulator code into our cvs libraries, we need to start thinking about the items we need to do to contribute and manage a new component as well as tracking this new component in our status meeting.
      • Brainstorming of the items we need to do:
        • SAN Simulator team has renamed packages and copyright statements
        • Craig has volunteered to load the code into cvs – location an issue?
          • Where will the code be located?
        • Build, configuration and install
        • Testing
        • Download page - new section
        • Documentation review – installation and user documentation
        • Enhancements – planned by contributors as well as identified by Aperi team and users
        • Need to create a new Bugzilla component
        • Hold a design and architecture review/code review
        • Provide a product overview & demo
        • Discussed the idea of an Aperi super project with SAN Simulator and SRM components/bundles
          • Look at other projects and how they handle this
      • Restructure a section in the meeting to track all of these items – integrate into our schedule
    • Third Party Contribution Questionnaires
      • None this week
    • Process reviews
      • We have not been following one of our processes. We had agreed that our committer community would vote on our code contributions. We have not been doing this. We need to get back to this for components and milestone releases.

Aperi Forum Tom 7/19/07 Suggested by Javier. Investigate setting up forums for Aperi communication. Looked into Basic function was there, but the administration was complex and general use did not seem intuitive. Looked into Friendly, easy to use, familiar to more forum users.
