Architecture Council/Meetings/March 25 2010 Breakfast

At EclipseCon 2010 a bunch of Architecture Council members met during breakfast on Thursday the 25th of March. Our discussion covered the following topics:

API Tooling

  • good stuff
  • more projects should use it
  • difficult to get data for entire release train?


  • new projects need at least some code
  • simple getting started page for projects (steps, etc.)
  • mentors checking back on projects; no response => archive them
  • bugs as new project "checklist"
  • EDP could be more well-publicized
  • short entry point / portal for EDP
  • Wayne wants help with simplifying EDP
    • lots of projects in violation at the moment
    • new version brings many violating projects into conformance
  • review documentation is important
  • extend project plan to be useful during development
    • extend plan schema in general
  • creation review is low-hanging fruit
    • proposal could become creation document
  • navigate between projects via "About this project" siebar

Project Websites

  • Nova template good / too complicated
  • drive new project websites from the portal
  • automate project websites from the portal


  • easier, used more
  • tool to make it easy to get started

Oisin Money Quotes

  • "build fairy"
  • "muffin top of lard"


Other topics

  • lots of confusion about modelling projects
    • response: "people are confused in general"
  • licensing of contributions via bugzilla (attachments) => EPL by default or not?
  • some people would like to see an OpenGrok instance at (see bug 307021)
