Review of Last Meeting

New Topics

  • Nominate new members (Wayne)
    • Proposed candidates approved on the phone conf. Ask candidates whether they're willing, then initiate E-Mail vote
  • Updates from the Board
    • e4 performance has been discussed: improve feedback channels from the Community
    • Martin: Moving in the right direction - needs time to look at issues individually
    • Martin: "Report a bug" to Eclipse, including logs (maybe also improvement ideas)
    • Mike working behind the scenes to get more contributors. Need projects to take the input.
  • CBI/Platform Build
    • Platform can build now on CBI - wohoo !
  • infrastructure
    • Working well at the moment
  • Processes Simplifications
    • Do away with the "3 questions" and use the git "signed-off-by" instead
    • Reduce paperwork for committers : Click-through agreements
    • New Portal going slower than hoped - rolling out today for LocationTech Working Group (separate Forge with all infrastructure), if that goes well roll out to the projects
      • Polarsys working group also on separate forge - main motivation of separate Forge is different licensing needs, as well as branding
      • Different URL's but similar processes
      • AI Wayne invite Andrew Ross for next call talk about LocationTech

Git Migration

  • Move to git needs to happen - 70 days left - remind your mentored projects !
  • Migration is mostly automatic, though there's a chance improving structures as part of the migration
  • Getting the get repo granularity right is the biggest challenge
  • SVN being deprecated too (new projects discouraged from git)
    • Following renames (works today, there's a Preference setting for egit)
  • Website migration is smooth
