Review of Last Meeting
- Architecture Council/Meetings/May 16 2013
- Still open items moved to #Action_Items
Contributor License Agreements (CLA's)
- MikeM: Going Live next Tuesday (June 17th) with the ability to register a CLA with Eclipse.org
- Going Live Thursday June 27th with enforcing CLA's (commit hooks on Git / Gerrit)
- Contribution will be kicked out if the Author doesn't have a CLA on file
- Docs being written right now - been stable on a staging server
- Before enforcement goes live: Can ask contributors to provide CLA on Bugzilla
- DavidW: Who has to fill out a CLA ?
- Anybody who's not a committer and wants to give any code to Eclipse.org
- Committers who want to contribute to another project
- Rather than asking the "3 questions" ask for the CLA
- CLA's have a lifetime of 3 years
- CLA is drafted as "generic" to work with dual/multi-licensed projects, so committers are not required pointing to contributors to unusual licensing (but it may be courtesy to others of course)
- When pushing to git (or gerrit), each commit in the push is inspected for CLA on file for the Author, and proper signed-off-by flag.
- "Belts and Suspenders" : Commit needs both, the Author field and the Signed-off-by flag.
- DLTK: Late ripple ... should PC have been stricter ?
- Some whining from projects how much effort the review docs are
- Walking through the release review docs, Wayne would love to see "This is what the release is all about" ... like
- Eclipse Infrastructure - git, Gerrit, Maven, Hudson, Bugzilla, ...
- Wayne: Bugzilla Component for AC
- Default Assignee is "email@example.com"
- AC members can "watch"
- Intended behavior is that the mailing list is notified of NEW issues or FIXED issues, but not about every comment ... seems broken
- AI Wayne check the behavior, and investigate
- Wayne: Test Instance of CLA request for Testing
- Updates from the Board or the EMO
- Desire to simplify the process
- Cleaned up old action items, see Architecture Council/Meetings/February 10 2011 for old stuff
- (old) Tim write up an initial wiki page with information for people to standardize on the tracing API
- (old) Martin revise the AC Wiki to make it easier to find the New Member Process. More links on homepage. More usage of categories.
- (old) Martin bug 315210 Make the AC mailing list open / moderated
