Current Work

  • Skype Call Quality
    • Excellent even with 9 participants (8 + organizer). This is the Maximum that Skype supports, so we could meet on Skype only because Michael had another appointment.
  • M5 upcoming - Test and endgame plan?
    • Want M5 finished by Friday Feb 15 --> Risky checkins to be complete by Friday Feb 8 --> Test run on Tuesday Feb 12
    • First PII drop on Feb 25th, Deadline until end of M6; try to minimize any wholesale changes after Feb.25th
    • PII Changes for UI/Non-UI Splitting e.g. bug 190231 SubSystem, bug 211067 SystemMessages in Services
    • 3.0 M5 assigned open bugs
      • SystemMessages UI/Core separation - AI DaveM to investigate
        • DaveD prefer to have standard NLS strings only
  • TM 2.0.3 upcoming Feb.29 -- 2.0.3 assigned bugs, any else?
    • AI All file 'backport' bugs for 2.0.3 until end of this week
  • Eugene new committer
    • Martin wants TCF to be discussed more in the Open. Currently mostly Wind River engagement, but more to come (; ECSI Debug Standards Workshop).
    • TCF is mostly separate from RSE technology. AI Martin create separate Bugzilla component for TCF.
  • Can we commit to support Java 6 (just runtime)?
    • YES. Develop against Java 1.4 and test against Java 6. Main topic is incorporation of scripting. Eclipse Debugger supports finding references of objects.
  • TM Website
    • bug 216197 Bugs link on the side nav bar is broken by that latest changes
    • Kevin: Discussions fine so far, not touched the code yet?
    • Martin: Would like to get more dynamic information onto the homepage in an automated manner e.g. automated release notes with milestones. Avoid merging errors if starting work end this week.
  • Bug Fixing - Remember our 2-fix-per-week / 3 unittests-per-milestone plan
  • Next BugDay/February_2008 on Feb 29
  • Javier busy until end of Feb; no time for Eclipse currently
  • DaveD's lazy init done. bug 217556 ServiceSubSystem
    • What if a subsystem does not have a service layer? - Return null for getServiceType()
    • Existing code that checks whether something has a service needs to be changed: AI DaveD Find references to IServiceSubSystem
    • bug 217894 Subsystem Configuration Families - subsystem category would be orthogonal to subsystem family -- family would be related to connector service -- AI All comment on the bug
    • Import/export connections rather than profiles - extend the persistence provider for import/export. Use a profile that only contains those things relevant to the exported elements, and merge it on import (or instantiate + copy).
      • Uwe: Contributors may have their own format for import/export already
      • This is maybe related to bug 160403 Filters should be connection-private by default
  • DaveM: -
    • bug 212742 Util for sending commands and receiving output without echo
      • Martin would like to see with M5 for EclipseCon tutorial; but it seems to work OK with SSH and dstore? AI Martin review the bug

    • EFS and encodings - No response from platform or TPF teams
