Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • Face-to-face at EclipseCon Europe ?
    • Michael Scharf to send out a message on mailing list
    • E4/Scripting guys might be very interested too
  • Wayne: Lot of new projects on LocationTech and Polarsys - looking hard for mentors
    • Trying to match new and experienced mentors recently - seems to be working
    • Krum likes the idea (volunteered for GeoMesa)
    • LocationTech and Polarsys folks come from a slightly different background, may need a little bit more mentoring (on little things)
    • Cleaning up
  • Wayne: bug 413169 Call Home Policy - need to have presentation done by Oct 18
    • Ian: The person most interested seems to be Marcel Bruch, he's not on the AC...
    • An "opt-out policy" is off the table, Board would never approve that
    • Wayne is very concerned about looking goofy - can't have 40 dialog boxes
    • Usage Data collection: EMO don't have the bandwidth to do anything useful with the data - no case for collecting data for own purposes
  • New AC Members proposed
  • EclipseCon 2014 CFP is opened
