TM 2.0M6 Testing

  • AI Martin Prepare statistics on testing and downloads for the next committer meeting
    • Kushal: A couple of students going to help with testing internal and Open Source RSE in April - testing on Vista
    • Another students will be working 4 months starting in May, using openRSE for an internal project

Bugs and open work to be discussed

  • Plan towards M7
    • Priority #1: Open Major Bugs - hanging dstore, Copying issues, NPEs
      • NLS bugs: BIDI, DBCS - Kushal has access to one of the BIDI machines, and can set up a DBCS environment on his Linux box. Priority: 2 rounds of testing: Enablement test - assure that assistence from knowledgeable people is there; assistence test in May. Want Enablement bugs fixed by this or next I-bugs.
      • Enablement Testers may be able to help fixing bugs and submitting patches - point them to the TM_and_RSE_FAQ
    • Priority #2: EFS: Project is closed on workspace re-start
      • Workaround: use local projects with linked resources instead
      • DaveD: CredentialsProvider should not need a shell when credentials are stored
      • AI DaveM Fix ISubSystem.connect(IProgressMonitor, boolean forcePrompt) to take a boolean force; keep old method as a delegate with default forcePrompt=false to avoid unnecessary API breaking change
      • Might come up with a point patch on update site for adding RSEFileStore.copy() and move() methods
    • Priority #3: Remaining API changes for Persistence, Refresh etc.
      • Mostly DaveD and Martin
      • Try to stay API compatible until the EFS and Major Bug fixes are in an I-build
    • Javier: FTP parallel download, allowing to register directory listing parser by extension point
    • Useractions / Importexport: - AI Martin Move packages to "internal"; add to nightly builds; AI DaveD, Kushal persistence with User Actions; Dave working on API prerequisites now; AI DaveM Import/Export
    • Migration Guide
      • Open Source: openRSE 1 -> openRSE 2 can be done by Martin
      • IBM internal RSE7 -> openRSE - a huge change, radically different than openRSE 1 -> openRSE 2, not done with some simple renamings; no hurry doing an RSE7 migration guide before the 2.0 release, people will not be moving before August.
    • Usersguide: - Will not be taken for translations before the 2.0 Golden Master

  • General Guidelines
    • Avoid breaking API changes if possible (keep delegate methods, use deprecation)

Vacation, Away

  • Javier coming back to London tonight
  • DaveM will be here but just about 10% on Open Source this week
  • Kushal out 1/2 day on Tuesday (during meeting time), another 1/2 day on Wed and full day on Thur
  • DaveD out on Friday 20th

Action Items

  • Last Meeting Action Items
  • DaveD: Remaining changes for Persistence (will be required for User Actions)
  • DaveM: Major bugs for dstore, copying; Create ISubSystem.connect(IProgressMonitor, boolean)
  • Kushal: EFS improvements, BIDI bugs
