  • Jeff McAffer
  • Tom Watson
  • Simon Kaegi
  • DJ Houghton
  • John Arthorne
  • Pascal Rapicault
  • Andrew Niefer


  • Status of RC1
  • Discuss bug 275551. This has sparked some discussion in OSGi to remove the Event constructor that takes a Hashtable.
  • Is Eclipse-BundleShape header used by p2/PDE/Build now. Should we document it bug 157562
  • Update Copyrights for Galileo.
  • Equinox SDK content
  • RCP SDK in galileo
  • Runtime dependencies
  • servlet bridge build and the extension bundle


Status of RC1

  • looking good in general
  • Jetty dependencies are pulling in too much stuff because of greediness
    • brings in JMX and bits of TPTP etc
  • Tom to let folks know if there is anything particular to be tested in framework and components in the test pass next week

OSGi API changes

  • There is an constructor that got added in this cycle and may be removed before the release
  • if OSGi removes it it will have to happen this week. If not and it gets removed later we will @deprecate
  • If the new constructor is removed then we should do an eductation campaign to make people aware of the OSGi spec change


  • The header is used in a couple places
  • should be documented

Update Copyrights for Galileo.

  • Ensure that we update the copyrights/dates
  • there were some changes to the copyright tool so we should ensure that we are using the right tool
  • Review your changes regardless of which tool you use
  • copyrights should be updated by the end of RC2

Equinox SDK content

  • much discussion
  • look to include everything required for non-UI scenarios
  • add an extra feature to capture all the third party dependencies with strict ranges

RCP SDK in target platform category

  • This should be added to the target platform category
  • Jeff will enter bug report for this

Runtime dependencies

  • Equinox bundles should NOT have a dependency on org.eclipse.core.runtime.
  • Jeff to enter bugs in content type and preferences to have the extension points moved
    • on second thought, jeff thinks that the moving them would confuse the issue and we should just promote the new names.

Servlet bridge build and the extension bundle

  • Need more detail here to see if there are specific issues
