  • Top Priorities from the previous week:
    • #1 - Bookkeeping: Copyright Checks
    • #2 - Hi-priority bugfixing
  • Upcoming Work
    • New bugs: REVIEW Assigned to Inbox, Status NEW
      • Open bugs: P1, P2 bugs, API bugs, Open with Patch,
      • DaveD: 150128 harder than expected, would like to defer: bugfix to persist each of 3 persist-jobs in a row is easier than adding the API for persist on demand
      • DaveM: 153652 copy&paste - drag&drop works always, copy&paste fails from remote FS to windows explorer.
        • Dave & Kushal could not reproduce problems with Drag&Drop files when folders worked
        • --> Martin to re-test once Commons_Net builds ok
    • Communications
      • We need a RSE 2.0 Project Plan! - Work on the RSE 2.0 Planning page (not discussed)
        • Martin to create an empty Milestone Plan in a hidden area of the webserver; DaveD to fill in features for dates
    • Source Code Style & Cleanness (not discussed)
      • Missing / Incomplete Copyrights - fixes look good, please use UTF-8 as character set for projects
      • Compiler Warnings: See Committer Howto
      • Code Ownership - DSDP/TM/Code Ownership - DaveD to edit (for self).
        • Propose FTP to be transferred from Martin to Javier (OK)
        • Propose CDT Launcer to be transferred from Martin to Ewa (OK with committers, DaveD to clear with Ewa)
    • Change Requests
      • SystemRegistry.getTheSystemRegistry() vs. RSEUIPlugin.getSystemRegistry()
      • Default colors for command view - white background, black or dark blue foreground
      • Remove rseConfigDefaults extension point - Kushal
      • Remove passwordPersistence extension point - Kushal
      • Deprecated getRemoteProperty() --> Document property namespaces, reserve "org.eclipse.rse" namespace
    • Features: Jakarta-commons/Net, JUnit-framework, Discovery, EFS-Experimental, WR-Terminal (bug 152826)
    • Refactorings: DaveM did most important stuff; consider "finished" for now, continue with hi-pri bugs
      • SystemRegistry.getTheSystemRegistry() vs. RSEUIPlugin.getSystemRegistry() -- need to keep this for now
      • Kushal IConnectorService --> if we can afford after addressing hi-pri bugs
    • API Things
      • Service Error Reporting - bug 149472 - DaveD - API ok so far, final resolution? --> Create new different bug id for that one.
      • Parallel Services - bug 142478 all queries in background - DaveM
      • SystemRegistry.createHost for Javier
        • bug 150168 dont commit immediately - DaveD
          • Javier: not important at the moment; DaveD: probably fixed already (Still under investigation)
        • bug 150265 allow specifying subsystem types - DaveM
          • Example: 1 Host providing shell and FTP (different categories)
          • Problem: createHost() only creates a host with 1 service -- See video for service discovery, DaveM to take a look at it
          • Need createHost() with a list of services
          • Can wait until hi-pri bugs are fixed.
      • Making stuff internal - ssh, ftp: Martin; Core: List of candidates from DaveD?
    • Cleanup: API Doc (duplicates in interface and implementation!), JUnit tests, Context help, Test Plans, RSE-7-migration-docs, Copyrights, licenses
  • Other items
    • Tutorial: Update at the end of the release process, change instructions (re-use example code: We dont want to teach PDE)
    • Manual test plans - in work by Martin
  • Vacations, Holidays etc.
    • Martin - 2 weeks once the baby is here (October 1st!)
    • Javier taking Oct 12-13.
    • DaveD taking Oct.12-13 off, 20 as well
  • Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
    • EclipseCon 2007 coming in March. Call for Papers has been issued. Martin (and perhaps DaveM) will submit proposal for 2 hour tutorial.
