Review of Last Meeting
- Architecture Council/Meetings/May 12 2016
- Still open items moved to #Action_Items
- Marcel: Make error reports available to contributors, not only committers, and how
- Jonas: UUID call home issue - involvement of the AC
- Jay: Licensing ? (deferred from May call)
- Being taken care of by Wayne, EF will reach out when they are ready
Marcel: Make error reports available to contributors
- JDT, Andmore and Buildship said that Error Reports (at list the aggregation) should be available to Contributors
- Anonymization: Only eclipse.org stacktraces, no actual error message, no user names, no IP ...
- There might be technical ways to accomplish that, but is it meaningful ?
- Some projects requested it, so can be assumed it's meaningful
- Committers moving reports into bugzilla after review doesn't scale - could Platform or others benefit from active contributors
- Martin: What about going the other way round - adding a privacy statement to the CLA
- (?? Ericsson): Do other projects (like Mozilla, Netbeans) have similar error reports, and are they public ?
- AI Marcel research other projects and talk to EF on legal concerns with allowing contributors access
Jonas: UUID call home
- Dani: Saw the feature only when Tom Watson from RT sent a note on bug 490112 - commented that it should be opt-in but that was ignored
- In RC3, code was added to only talk to eclipse.org servers, Community was only informed at RC4
- Don't know exactly if this was driven by Ian for Marketing only, or more EF
- Marcel requested the announcement (when asked about AERI addition)
- Jonas: Should the AC have been consulted ? If not consulted, is it still relevant ?
- Marcel: Guidelines to Projects are very clear - bug 413169 call home policy discussion
- The EF would need to be consulted before anyone sends data back home
- In this case it was special because Foundation staff themselves requested an opt-out
- Requested change is that EF should reach out to PMCs / AC / cross-project before requesting such a change
- [DONE] AI Martin send message to Ian to that effect, request being informed Neon.1
