Comments, questions, concerns?


We will focus on requirements changes (if any) in subsequent meetings ... but for now, is there agreements on my proposed dates? They are very similar pattern as previous years: Kepler/Simultaneous_Release_Plan#Schedule

Agreement with the dates

Start annual debrief

Feel free to add things to the page before the meeting, if that would facilitate discussion.
Some good points raised. We will re-visit in September.
Be sure to read last years: Planning_Council/Indigo_retrospective

Other Business

  • Comments on migrating aggregation files to Git? See bug 359240.

Wayne officially approved using "org.eclipse.simrel" as package names, even though "simrel" is not an Eclipse Project, in the normal sense.

No issues with transitioning this coming week.

  • It was asked if "b3 aggregator" would be replaced by something in CBI.
Answer was "no, no plans at this time". Tycho itself produces a simple repo but does not do any other "repo validation and publishing" like b3 aggregator does.

Next Meeting

  • September 5, 2012 (our regular "first Wednesday" meeting, at Noon Eastern).
Conclude (if needed) our yearly "debrief" on what went well, what could be better.
