Current Work

  • Asterisk Conferencing
    • Quality too bad 5 people with DaveM calling from home

  • DSDP/TM/Face-to-face Meeting Toronto 17-Sep-2007: Participants? Agenda Items? - Martin needs confirmation to book his flight.
    • DaveD: Extreme travel restrictions at IBM -- asking till Friday 20th whether the Dave's can come
  • 2.0.1 Ramp Down Plan: Questions? Thoughts?
    • End of August cutoff for 2.0.1 is OK -- may not be able to do all assigned 2.0.1 ones
    • Deferring not a problem, currently it's more of a "what's possible assignment"
  • Unit Tests / TPTP AGR
    • Xuan spent some time on Unittests, created a test for create/copy/rename of archives, want to create some more
    • Created some stuff, will check in once promoted to committer
    • Just calling the APIs -- did not find a similar testcase to re-use; local host for now, dstore as next step.

  • Deadlock: Everybody please read the text on synchronized at bug 196919 comment 2
    • Uwe: Is RSE thread aware? - We are using Jobs; some parts are well protected (RSEPersistenceProvider: single-threaded); model objects not so sure; old IBM RSE was mostly dispatch thread, added jobs later, tried to be careful.
  • 193329 First Column in Table View
    • Martin: PropertyDescriptor quirks -- filling PropertyView differently than Tableview -- AI Martin to look at it

  • Bugzilla: Severity Major, hi-priority
    • DaveM: 193858 RSE folder tree problem -- 195285 mountPathMappers enhancement needs API change, so have to defer to the Future; Workaround is using different forms of the IP address for the same host.
    • DaveM: 196662 Refresh on Dispatch thread could be tricky since already in the event handler -- getObject() is there since the adapter has no exists() method
      • Martin - perhaps solve it with Callbacks as temporary solution, add an exists() method in the future (we just re-get the existing object)
    • Martin: 192610 EFS to be attacked next thing
    • Xuan: 191374 SSH Performance on large directory -- fix the dependent bugs, then re-try again

  • Javadoc Reviews: @since tag for new API, missing @param tags, ... can be fixed now for RSE since we are rebuilding just about every RSE plugin for 2.0.1 (except discovery, terminal, remotecdt, tests right now)

Vacation, Away

  • Xuan -public holidays beginning of August (Aug 3rd, Aug 6th) in Toronto
  • DaveD working on and off
  • DaveM, DaveD taking a couple weeks in August
  • Javier ooo last two weeks in August
