  • Ganymatic/EPP
    • Ganymatic should just involve running generator over Ganymede update site
    • EPP requires more work - new product IUs for each package
    • Andrew N volunteered to look into this
  • What must be completed before integration in the SDK?
    • A solution to the "forcing a plug-in" use case (quick and dirty replacing version of a plug-in for testing purposes)
    • Updated features, p2-ized SDK build
    • We need to run all the Eclipse project automated tests on the p2-ized SDK - John to look at it
    • Mac support
    • Install registry format changes
    • Ensure user work flows are covered
  • SDK Build
    • Replace call to packager with call to director app for each platform
    • Or, switch to proper PDE product build, which has support now for generating p2 metadata
    • Pascal, DJ, and Andrew N to work on this
  • Licensing
    • Do something very close to current update manager functionality today
    • Avoiding defining concepts around licenses, license equality, etc
    • Remove notion of license id, and base equality strictly on license text wad
    • Do metadata change to encode license text in CDATA section in file formats
  • Translation
