General Issues

>Guy: Schema issue >Karen had a question about whey the schemas are not in the eclipselink 1.1 file? >The 1.0 version was required so that we have an upgrade process for changes above the released 1.0 schema on our website >need to verify that targetNamespace left/right sides of attributes are compatible for schema upgrades or is flexible >Process should be seamless to users during a 1.1 upgrade - as long as we keep adding optional instead of incompatible changes >Agree that the 1.0 schema is immutable >

        • Do we want a src and bin/classes directory
        • Should classes just exist at the base of the project (what about the jar we eventually create)
        • How should we name the jars we create
  • WIKI Changes should be done in parallel to any bug fixes to eclipselink.*.test ant targets or other public API changes - mobrien 20080529.
  • DONE Bugzilla components - sign-off on final changes below

  • Automated Testing
    • Need SRG test models for JPA, MOXy and SDO
      • DB components of those tests should be simple enough to run on Derby
      • Need to test Core SRG on Derby
  • Bug Prioritization and targetting
    • Currently more bugs are scheduled for 1.0.1 then we are likely to fix in that time
    • We currently do not have a system to ensure a bug has a published priority level
    • We should discuss how will we deal with these issues
  • Bug DB usage
    • If you are working on a bug, assign it to yourself.
      • add dummy inbox to the cc list.
    • Set the target milestone to the correct milestone.
      • Confusion/concern on this part
      • Milestones
        • 1.0M9 are bugs that are to be fixed by the the corresponding milestone build.
        • 1.0 is a bug that is to be fixed by 1.0, but has no current target milestone.
        • 1.0.1 new bugs should be filed against this target
  • Bug council
    • Introduce notion of Bug council
    • Wed 2:30pm
      • Untargeted bugs are going to be reviewed by bug council on a weekly basis (current proposed time is directly after weekly status meeting (2:30 ET on Wednesdays).
        • A milestone will be set - or set to future
        • Bug may get assigned
      • When you enter a new bug, leaving it untargeted means that the bug council will review to decide which release it is targeted for.
      • If you know which milestone the bug will be fixed in, assign it accordingly.
      • The new target - future - is for bugs that don't have a target yet.
  • Code headers
    • Ensure Header is dual license EDL + EPL
      • Found and fxed some build xml files.
    • Ensure contributor is correct - new code should have code author (no - intial code from oracle)
      • Found and fxed some build xml files.
