      • Next NLS drops: near end march -- near-final NLS drop (UI-Freeze: M6+2)
      • Translation only of what IBM ships (not Terminal, Discovery, TCF, RemoteCDT) (only RSE-SDK, DStore-Server, Useractions) - AI Xuan add RSE useractions to PII Mapfile
    • Xuan: Changes of using or implementing encryption methods? - no encryption in TM
    • Xuan: Request PMC presentation material for EclipseCon review (will be invited to review later on) - ok will consider when invited
    • Unit Tests - next priority after API
      • Need all unit tests enabled in nightly builds - need to use Uwe's Connection Property classes, see FTPFileSubsystemTestCase - AI Xuan, DaveM, Kevin Use Properties for unit tests

      • bug 190231 subsystem UI -> Core: AI DaveD help with Wizard Pages and the way they are registered; make them adaptable somehow
      • bug 220892 reving down dstore protocol version - AI DaveM add a Handler Hook for registering handshake handler / error handler
      • bug 197167 Callback to know when RSE model is fully restored - AI DaveD Local Connection Preference: move from UI to Core; JobChangeListener join; stampfiles - looks good
      • bug 221211 MultiStatus for IFileService batch operations - exception on first failure for modifying operations. No exceptions/multistatus on non-modifying operations. AI DaveD/DaveM update Javadocs when it's clear what we want
      • bug 220379 Make DStoreFileService API - encodingHandler - wait on reporter, AI Martin comment on bug (object reference idea)
      • bug 220547 SimpleSystemMessage message ID - globally unique message id vs. plugin-local status - Dialog Title: MessageID if globally unique / generic title based on severity if plugin-local
      • bug 220995 Xuan: Can we remove some interface provided by SystemSelectRemoteFileAction and SystemSelectRemoteFolderAction
      • bug 218947 IRemotePath idea - AI DaveM create new defect for the API change
        • Martin: Migration could be stepwise, if we are able to convert String into IRemotePath and vice versa
        • DaveM: Naming convention -- IHostPath instead of IRemotePath since located in the Service?
  • Planning - AI Martin to write up what we discussed in Toronto
    • Think about assigning bugs to target milestones. What goes into 3.0 and what not? - DaveD Mylyn is nice for bug review!
  • TM Website
    • AI Kevin follow up on his website proposals
  • Javier almost finished on Symbian assignment, will have some time for RSE but needs to talk to Manager
    • Martin updating Commons Net to 1.5.0
    • bug 212382 ftpListingParser initCommands
  • DaveD
    • bug 217894 Subsystem Configuration Families - subsystem category would be orthogonal to subsystem family -- family would be related to connector service -- change wizard pages from API into plugin.xml markup? AI All comment on the bug
    • Import/export connections rather than profiles - extend the persistence provider for import/export. Use one format for export only in the UI,, perhaps allow multiple providers for import (for migration), perhaps allow multiple kinds of export via API.
  • DaveM: -
    • EFS and encodings - No response from platform - suggstion alternative EFS provider, always convert into UTF-8, continue discussion on the defect
  • Kevin: -
