  3. i12 planning
  4. P2/SDD runtime alignment
  5. Other items


  1. i11 status - nothing new.
    • We will be moving some of our i11 ERs to i12.
    • If you have ERs that you intend to add to i12, let Jason know or update the i12 page.
    • Use case review scheduled for tomorrow, 18JUN08.
  2. Action items
    • Eric reports that removal of Tuscany from tooling code is on target (i13).
    • Josh to move ERs for rules to i13.
    • Eric got word this morning that Change Analyzer has been approved by Eclipse Legal finally! He will push later this week.
    • Design doc done for now. Jeff to update wiki so that it reflects the latest.
    • Mark M. working on changing zip extractor packages.
    • Paul and Jason had tasks to create installation documentation, that needs to be reconciled.
  3. P2 meeting occurred just before this call today.
    • Summary:
      • Walked Pascal (P2 team lead) & Philipe through our design doc.
      • P2 looks like it could provide the underpinnings to what we have outlined in our design.
      • They currently have a "Director" which used to be called "Orchastrator" that is very similar to ours.
      • They also have something called a "Zip Extractor".
      • I believe they have a Resource Handler interface or something very similar to it.
      • P2 uses an in memory object model that they call their "IU".
      • We share common goals, but SDD includes more than the P2 team was targeting.
      • Pascal was interested in the Query Handler interface, P2 does not do any querying of the system. He was not so much interested in the Registration Handler interface.
      • The COSMOS/SDD folks need to pull down the P2 code and just see what it does, and what can be reused. We need to see if we can make P2 process an SDD and install something.
      • Charlie to research and/or talk to Mark W. about how to do cross-project work in Eclipse.
      • Jason will send out summary of P2 discussion to dev mailing list.
  4. Discussions starting about OVF/SDD alignment. Need to have similar discussions about CML/SML. Julia on the SML working group and will report back in a couple of weeks.
