  • SR2 coming up.
  • Issues?
EGit planning 2.3, but 2.1 is still their common repo contribution? (That is, why aren't they "fully participating"?) See bug 399437. Kepler contribution is even further behind.
Action Item: Chris will "get back to us" on what EGit's plans are ... he initially thought "final code" would be done in two weeks, but I reminded him RC4/final builds are next Wednesday.


  • It is almost M5! Everyone in?
Exceptions to M4 deadline: XWT, m2e-wtp (Kepler M6)
Action Items: Chris, and Wayne, respectively, will send out more detailed proposal/justification for these to "come in late" during M6. There were questions on if they would be "Incubating" or not (currently are, but might be ready for a "graduation review").
  • Approved exceptions:
Stardust for M5 approved on mailing list.

Other Business

  • Any discussion of Kepler +1 name: Luna.
See vote results.
  • Thank you Chris for driving this naming process!
  • Wayne briefed us on status of "PMI" (?Project Management Information?) and said he's about to blog and "send instructions" for new system, but soon, metadata will be accessed for editing, by committers, from their own project page.
He had question/proposal about projects "adding themselves to release train" ... first, technically, only he could do it now ("tracker" removed from Portal), but he was thinking it'd be good to change the process a little where each project would had to request it (say, on cross project list?), and then be added by him, or Planning Council member. This improves communication, but also prevent "accidental" abuse of projects just adding themselves at any time ... such as under old system, someone could add their project during RC3 if they misunderstood the process (or, even, a previous release!).
