Actions follow-up

  • Mélanie : Prepare the schedule for the June & September releases
Added to the call agenda for validation : June Plan & September proposal dates
  • Mélanie : Contact Wayne & Nick to get follow-up about the following actions
  • Wayne: add item to calendar: validate participation list (on March 8); repeat for 2019-06 schedule
March 8 (Milestone 3) seems too late. Don't recall agreeing to validate at that point (maybe assemble the list, but we need to validate sooner than that). Post to cross-project-issues-dev.
  • Wayne : document participation validation process
The participation requirements section was updated. A note was sent out to cross-project-issues-dev.
  • Nick : to talk to Wayne re: automating the validation process via a new job/script hosted on simrel JIPP
Bash script used by Wayne, manual process.
  • Wayne to remove offsets from project pages, but keep it in the simrel release req
Follow up with web dev gays.
  • Wayne : to clean up PMC rep list
The PMC and Strategic Member representatives are now accurate on the most recent meeting minutes page. Also added appointed members.
Given the current focus of the Planning Council, Wayne don't think that we'll be able to get much interest from the companies and TLPs that are missing representatives. Wayne will ask the business development folks about whether or not Robert Bosche might be interested (and maybe CEA List). Eclipse Science may be interested as well; Wayne will send a note to their PMC list. Pretty sure that only Adrian Mos is inactive in the current list. Eclipse SOA should be terminated relatively soon, so just leave it.


Next release update

Business as usual, M2 on Friday, everything is ok. Tiny little change Mickaël Istria opened a bugzilla to remove the index.html as now directory is browsable. It will be removed for the next coming release. Dani asked if there is some news about marketing activities, if Sopot or Thabang are taking care of it ?


WildWebDeveloper project is joining March SimRel in M2.

June & September schedules

Mélanie asked to review the June Plan on the wiki & the September proposal dates on the Google calendar.


  • Dani : will send an email to get updates about marketing activities for 2019-03.
  • All : Please review the June Plan wiki page and the Google calendar dates for 2019-09. Mélanie will send an email to ask everyone to approve the schedule.Actions follow-up
