Actions from last time


  • AI: Fred to delegate to web team to push all & mark red w/ bug details - maybe for M2?
  • AI: Dani to email Thabang (cc: Ed) about replacing "Simrel" with "IDE" on download and marketing pages because "Simrel" makes his eyes hurt (though it should be noted that instead of calling the release a "train" he does refer to it as "the simrel") :P
  • AI: Alex to talk to Wayne about appointing Sopot
    DONE Sopot has is now an appointed member of the Eclipse Planning Council
  • AI: Wayne: add a new date to the simrel schedule for when an announcement is send to cross-projects@, to report who we think is participating. If URLs are found w/ /latest/ or snapshot, they should be disabled?
    DONE in principle. Wayne did send out the report and has responded to feedback to update the list of participating projects and versions.
  • AI: Wayne: send note to cross-projects@ to announce not opting in
    DONE in principle. Wayne derived and communicated the list of participating projects; in that communication, he provided instructions for opting out.
  • AI: Wayne: update "ASAP" re: "Create your release record (for new releases)". Actual date is on/before Oct 19.
    DONE Communication regarding participation includes a reminder to create a release record.
  • AI: Wayne to produce documentation re: rules and send to planning-council list
    NOT DONE Wayne forgets the requirements, but we think this might have been about participation validation / process
  • AI: Fred restrict pushing to simrel w/o gerrit review
