Time Plan and Deadlines toward M7

  • Plan towards M7 - goals and deadlines for I-builds
    • I20070503 -- Minor API changes - Final Feature Additions - Feature Freeze (Terminal integration; FTP Parser)
    • I20070510 -- Stabilization, start TM 2.0 M7 Testing on May 14th
    • I20070516 -- TM 2.0M7 (17th is a public holiday in Austria!)
    • Reminder: TM 2.0 Ramp down Plan for Europa

Bugs and open work to be discussed

  • Current Priorities
    • Priority #1: Finish API Changes
      • Javier: FTP parallel download, allowing to register directory listing parser by extension point
        • Javier will move extension point from the service to the subsystem
    • Priority #2: Import/Export and User Actions
        • User Actions is really more of a framework than a concrete implementation. Extenders would need to write UI etc. for handling their own user actions.
        • It's too late for such a framework if we cannot come up with a good default implementation. Better drop the User Actions plan item. Having it as a committed plan item was due to the misunderstanding that this would ONLY be a concrete implementation of shortcuts for Shell rather than a framework.
    • Priority #3: Bugs
      • Bugzilla: Severity Major, hi-priority
      • Encoding Issues: Kushal single encoding control for all subsystems? 179939 What about binary vs. ASCII file transfer?
        • All transfer is now done in binary for dstore and ssh; but some protocols like FTP may make a difference, so keep the ASCII vs. binary Preference page for now.
        • Dstore now remembers original encoding in the cache rather than re-coding during the transfer (all transfer is done in binary). DaveM is concerned about this approach in the case some resources are exported. We think that the recoding would happen when transferring from the temp location to the target.
  • General Guidelines
    • Avoid breaking API changes after end of this week
    • Junior Jobs: Bugs marked as JJ: in the subject - similar to "helpwanted" keyword
