Agenda / Notes

  • Mikael: Status on migrating Platform SWT Windows build to Foundation servers ?
    • Dani: Not yet ready for broader discussion, there's license compliance issues and more.
  • Martin: Infrastructure issues with Eclipse Asterisk unstable
    • Eclipse PMC had been hit by this recently, others currently not affected
  • Maximilian: Eclipse p2 target platform resolution unstable
    • For his teams, target platform resolution still often fails due to servers unavailable
    • Seems no problem in North America, but hitting people in Europe
      • Currently considering a local mirror of "everything" and redirecting p2 to that, perhaps via artifactory
      • But the team is very distributed, so would prefer a mirroring service over that - still researching;
      • Do others see this issue? Workarounds?
    • Torkild: Also seeing this problem all the time!
      • Solution: Bash script creates a target_platform ZIP file that they use; updating only a couple times per year
    • Doug: Updating the Target Platform every night, and resolving locally - still seeing mirroring failures sometimes
    • ACTION Maximilian to create bugzilla for broader discussion of solution ideas / workarounds
