  • Our top goals
    • Enable Community Participation, grow the Community
      • That's the #1 requirement for release review - active user and adopter communities.
      • We get those through providing something useful for them, and helping them adopt it (tutorial, docs, mailinglist help)
    • Get the APIs Right
      • We need to enable API discussions in public.
    • Get our Processes in place
  • Process/IP/Legal
    • Comfortable with bugzilla and CVS processes? - TM Developer Resources
    • tm-log.csv -- questions?
      • Logging on a per-contribution basis: if multiple patches are on a single bugzilla, each is a line in the log.
      • Update-change-Commit the log early to avoid merging or making it a bottleneck.
    • recent contributions: docs, junit, user-actions, import/export
  • RSE/EFS discussion
    • RSE API Discussion
      • Don't want to make this page a duplicate of the docs. Want to drive API discussions over the javadoc.
      • Need to reconcile the javadoc with the Wiki page -- make some classes / interfaces internal
      • Want the Wiki page to be a directory into what's going on / being planned.
      • SystemMessages API?
    • Eclipse File Service APIs Compared
      • Can we make EFS a Plan item? Any big rocks to overcome? Get help from Tianchao?
      • Continue discussion with Tianchao; concerned that he only sees "files" while there are other subsystems.
      • Eclipse 3.2 has chicken&egg problems when creating projects, because temp files are stored in the RemoteSystemsTempFiles project. This leads to race conditions - not sure how to address this, DaveM has a patch for Eclipse to make it work. For now, JDT or CDT do not yet support EFS (Patch from Tianchao for CDT is on bug 142092)
      • There are other EFS problems, e.g. bug 134270 being deferred to Eclipse 3.3 -- they want to wait until there are more EFS clients
      • EFS support will most probably remain a Toy until release.
      • An EFS Browser in RSE seems to be a valuable thing -- could be based on the "Local" system type. Would be a great project for somebody to do, but the RSE core team will not have time to address this soon -- perhaps as an Example late in August.
    • RSE 2.0 Planning
  • Give better access to docs?
    • Online browseable docs? - AI Martin: Get this set up
    • Downloadable compiled docs?
    • Update Site?
  • Mailing List Duty
    • All committers should be active on the mailing lists
  • Bugzilla Situation - use "Rember Search as.." in Bugzilla
  • Last meeting action items
  • Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
  • Next steps
    • DaveD - contributions(junit, user-actions, import/export), automated builds, bugfixing
    • DaveM - bugfixing, drive the API discussions, ML duty
    • Kushal - wizard completely replaceable, ui/non-ui refactoring
    • Martin - Process Docs, Press Text, Tutorial/Getting Started, ssh fixes, api and doc reviews, Doc Server
