    • Other News --

    • Downloads to-date: 31 (SDK), 10 (win-server), 8 (linux-server), 5 (examples); 5 efs, 4 disscovery; plus 11 from the update site (.pack.gz, +9 .jar)
    • Please Review Bugs assigned to M5 milestone and set FIXED as appropriate (or change Target Milestone=1.0 RC1)
    • Comments?
      • Javier: Will FTP be tested? - Martin: Yes once the Service uses Commons_Net
      • Javier will implement the glue from RSE File Service -> Commons_Net
      • Martin needs to fix the unattended builds
  • Top Priorities this week:
    • #1 - Fulfill the testing assignments (4h each; but not more) - RSE 1.0 Testing
    • #2 - Bookkeeping: Bugzilla M5 bugs status, Bugzilla NEW->ASSIGNED, Code Ownership, Copyright Checks
    • #3 - 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
        • Martin to create an empty Milestone Plan in a hidden area of the webserver; DaveD to fill in features for dates
      • Should we reduce noise on the dsdp-tm-dev list?
        • Decision: No - it's a developer list, so we're going to keep everything public.
        • Perform feature specific discussions in bugreports
        • Encourage users to use the newsgroup for questions
          • Anybody know a good newsreader? Problem is that most dont poll automatically. - Ted: Opera? Any Eclpse Plugin for newsreading?
    • Source Code Style & Cleanness
      • Missing / Incomplete Copyrights - PLEASE FIX NOW
        • Please use the Releng tool from the bottom of the Eclipse 3.2 Download Page - See the description there: "6. Fix Copyrights"
        • Martin to post instructions here and in committer HOWTO
      • Compiler Warnings: See Committer Howto
      • Code Ownership - DSDP/TM/Code Ownership - DaveD to edit
      • Code Style and Format
        • Not been a focus so far
        • RSE itself is inconsistent - e.g. if... without {} block is problematic
        • Use JDT autoformat as much as possible: perhaps define an RSE-style and check in with the projects?
        • Or use the standard eclipse style: might be problematic when merging RSE7 code into openRSE
          • DaveD likes the Sun (Eclipse Standard) convention
          • If one has trouble understanding some code, reformat it on the fly
          • Historically, some RSE code was generated out of modelling tools; no objection to reformatting
          • Additional RSE7 stuff merging is not a problem; back-porting bugfixes may be a problem though.
          • Decision: wait with auto-formatting until there are no bugfixes to back-port any more
  • Vacations, Holidays etc.
    • Martin - 2 weeks once the baby is here (around Oct.3, but could also be any time now)
    • DaveD taking Oct.12-13 off, 19-20 as well
    • Canadian Thanksgiving - Oct.9
  • Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
    • Javier - Updatesite: Discovery doesnt work from the update site
      • Martin: please try downloads, review
      • DaveD: What Environment is needed? - Javier: e.g. iTunes, DaveD will test
