DTP Project Lead Meeting Minutes: November 2, 2009

Back to DTP Project Lead Meeting Minutes: 2009, October through December page


  • Brian "Fitz" Fitzpatrick (Red Hat)
  • Brian Payton (IBM)


  • We went over David Williams' new "Eclipse Simultaneous Release" document (see [1].) We had some questions about some of the project requirements it describes.
    • In the Release Review section: "Projects ... agree to provide a checklist-with-detail form that describes their compliance (or not) will all the criteria items described in this document...". That sounds like a lot of work.
    • "Projects must provide their own P2 repositories...": Is this something beyond what we already do?
    • "About" file template: Does the date in the template need to be updated every release?
  • Fitz said he had heard from the Sybase doc people that they should have something for us by Wednesday.
  • We discussed Martin Oberhuber's concern about how DTP features are organized.
    • Sometime in the past we took out most of our sub-features because of performance concerns. Now Martin O. suggests that we should have sub-features in order to provide flexibility for download and install.
    • We noticed that WTP has 18 sub-features. So there is precedent for having lots of sub-features.
    • Linda will check with the Build team about this.
