Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • Welcome Denis
  • Ian - Reminder EclipseCon 2014 Deadline on Monday - would like to see some more Eclipse Core Technology talks (tools, ALF, Modeling, ...)
  • Wayne - 3 projects in need of Mentors (LocationTech) - need to get this Forge up to speed

General Topics

  • Eclipse Infrastructure - git, Gerrit, Maven, Hudson, Bugzilla, ...
    • Hudson Instance per Project (HIPP) working really well
      • These are not VM's , just a Java process running under a different user ID
      • Working on final touches to allow committers start/stop/restart processes via a Web UI
      • Windows or Mac slaves only on Shared Instance
        • Platform and p2 are doing both HIPP and master right now for that reason
        • Repeating CI builds on HIPP plus testing on Master - master become more stable as more jobs have moved to HIPP
      • Gerrit Verify job, and publishing direclty to Downloads are the two big wins
  • Updates from the Board or the EMO
    • Wayne presented on bug 413169 Calling Home Policy to the Board at ECE
      • Scoped down now to "uploading usage data" specifically
