  • GMF restructuring
    • Will go ahead with the proposed restructuring plan to incorporate Graphiti
    • Update Graphiti proposal to reflect the restructuring and to acknowledge that the GMF runtime too has an API, albeit one that leaks the GEF API through
  • Project Moves
    • What is the status of the pending moves? What of other GMT subprojects?
    • Epsilon, MoDisco, and MOFScript
      • GMT will terminate after the parts that are active are moved.
      • Epsilon will move to EMFT
      • MoDisco will move to MDT
      • MOFScript should be moved to M2T; will forward the private discussions to the m2t-dev mailing list.
  • Helios Participation
    • Portal tracker - is it available yet?
      • Yes, it's apparently in place.
    • Do we have an "end game" plan and/or ramp-down policy in place for Modeling yet?
      • We could reuse last year's policy.
    • Obeo to look at helping promote Ecore Tools to Helios
  • Modeling Builds
    • Do we have momentum for all the modeling projects to move to *Buckminster*.
    • Lets get back to the days where all of modeling is using he same build technology (and we all can help each other).
      • Should all move to *Buckminster*.
  • Modeling Websites
    • All Modeling projects should use the same web structure
    • We need to apply the latest theme (like Xtext has?)
  • Update Sites
    • Do we need individual "roll-up" update sites for projects that are on the release train?
      • People are concerned about problems this causes if several projects try to publish at once.
      • It's better to aggregate/compose individual update sites.
      • Features should reference that.
      • Should it be one site for all of modeling?
  • Examples Features / Plug-ins
    • Do we need downloadable/updatable examples features and plug-ins anymore if we have an example installer in place?
      • Not totally resolved...
  • Capabilities
    • Still... we discussed this during a previous meeting, but not sure we've arrived at a consensus.
      • It's problematic to keep them separate and to keep them out of Helios.
      • It would be good for Amalgamation to provide good categorizations.
      • Need to discuss further.
