Feel free to edit, but not during the meeting

  • IRC irc://#eclipse-e4 parallel to the meeting
  • Update from yesterday's e4/Meeting Minutes/Status 20090319 call
    • Martin: Resources are the only ones who are branching. Lets fix our merge strategies among ourselves.
    • Serge talked about Common Navigator changes - AI Serge to open bug to continue discussion.
  • Status of bug 268107 merging up to m6
    • Szymon - 30..40 files to review, knew all the changes, just 10-15 minutes;
    • Szymon is fine with merging resources part weekly on green I-build; UI part is likely more painful sine changes not known
    • James to merge the UI part with git?
    • Paul Webster proposes using a branch in e4 -- allows using
      • Suggest talking at the e4 bof
  • John hopes that split stream situation is only for a brief period -- suggests moving stuff early into 3.6
    • UI merge set should be small after m7
    • Only fork if we really think we want to work on it right away -- dont fork unnecessarily
      • Maybe do Common Navigator work in e4 after M7
    • Repositories are separate because IP rules are weaker in e4 as its incubating
