Agenda / Notes

Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • Krum bug 397644 How to contribute documentation
    • Follow-up offline on the bug, fine-tuning the guide and finding a place for it - BIG THANKS to Krum for getting things started
  • John / Wayne : Process Diet
    • Postpone to next month, follow up on the mailing list with initial thoughts, to prepare
  • Wayne : Eclipse Data Centre Move
    • Physically moving Servers on Feb 9, expect to be back up on Feb 10; IP addresses will change
  • Wayne : PMI (Project-Management-Interface)
    • Create a snapshot of the current Portal and put it into the Drupal-based PMI by end of the month
    • Pre-populate data with current meta-info from the Portal
    • System already used today on the LocationTech Forge
    • Please try and provide feedback (Create Community/Project Bugzilla or the AC mailing list)
    • Some Portal functionality is not quite ready yet, eg Simrel tracking
    • Voting in place (can be used) but does not send E-Mails yet
    • Tagging / Search is in place
    • Linking up the "Contributing" box against project-specific "How to contribute" as written up by Krum would be a great idea
    • Statistics from project Dash not 100% accurate (eg when moving to a different company, the new company gets all the credit)
  • Ian Bull: bug 397237 CVS read-only access
    • Committers cannot connect anonymously to read-only CVS, some people are affected in their builds
    • Martin: Using an old workspace with CVS projects (maybe just for browsing), re-importing from git is quite some effort .. this affects consumers
    • Wayne: Not much compassion ... projects knew long enough ... something has to go away eventually, when do we turn the switch ? In 6 months or when ?
    • Why not simply keep running read-only, why shutting down ? - continue discussion on the bug. Would need a really compelling argument to keep an obsolete service running.
      • Michael S: Servers and services are also changing... the world is changing. Can't keep everything alive forever.
    • If we do see references to CVS that are bogus, please fix them !
  • Eike Stepper: Any plans to change the client side of the git story ?
    • Martin: Was discussed on the Eclipse/PMC/Minutes_2012 on Dec 19
    • Want to replace the classic "Eclipse SDK" which comes from the Platform team by an EPP Package
    • Markus: bug 397896 is open for making this happen in EPP.
  • Martin: EclipseCon 2013 AC Meeting
    • A room is reserved for combined PC/AC meeting on Sunday (PC 2-4, combined PC+AC 4-5)
    • Martin cannot attend this year, so will need somebody to head the meeting

General Topics

  • Eclipse Infrastructure - git, Gerrit, Maven, Hudson, Bugzilla, ...
    • Wayne wants a plan by end of this quarter, to move Orbit off CVS (maybe using Maven, ...)
    • To be discussed also at EclipseCon ... any ideas from AC members ? Please let us know on the AC mailing list

Action Items

  • Cleaned up old action items, see Architecture Council/Meetings/February 10 2011 for old stuff
