  • Galileo planning
    • DTP Galileo Planning Draft
    • Need input from each PMC member's company to contribute to the Galileo effort
      • What priorities do you have? Where do you plan on contributing resources?
    • Actuate/ODA initial list of high-level projects (thanks Linda!)
      • Define filtering spec for support by any ODA data source queries
      • Support for Multi-dimensional Result Sets
      • Enhance ODA Framework and API to support advanced features requested by the community. For example, dynamic creation of connection profile instance, support ODA data source-defined object type.
  • Open discussion


  • Some concerns about the rampdown -- discussed the following
    • Adjust approvals by a week
      • Component Lead Approval (M2 to RC1)
      • Team Lead Approval (RC1 to RC2)
      • PMC Approval (RC2 to RC3) - PMC approval = ALL approve it (4/4)
      • Regular nightly builds with Integration builds on Friday (SH time) during M2->RC2 periods
      • Builds are request only (not nightly) during RC2 to RC3 period
  • IBM Galileo
    • SQL Parser/Model - additional syntax coverage
    • SQB - enhancements/bug fixes
    • Model base - enhancements
    • Overall theme - quality, usability, inhibitors to adoption
  • Ask each sub-project to come up with a plan
  • Ask the community what they feel is inhibiting them from adopting DTP
  • One Galileo issue - Migrating to JDK 1.5 vs. staying with JDK 1.4 - ask the community
    • Since EMF & GEF have moved to JDK 1.5, do we want to move with them?
    • Do we decide that we're NOT supporting JDK 1.4? If so, means that we build on 1.5
  • Review bugs to see if there are folks very active in the community and ask them about requirements

Action Items

  • Add 1.6.1 RC1/RC2/RC3 target milestones
  • Tell the committers not do deliver any fixes to M1 (branch is no longer active)
    • M1 build tagged already for 20080814, so should be able to see if anybody delivers after that accidentally
    • If we need to respin M1 down the line, can do so based on the tags
