Chair for September, October & November meetings

Mélanie Bats will not be available for September, October and November due to her maternity leave, someone from the community should take the chair position for this period, in last fallback, Wayne could take the role but it would be prefered if someone else from the community take it. Mélanie will send a mail to the mailing list about this topic.

Photon status : MPC request for respin

It was discussed that the process was slow, we had few votes and lots of undecided votes, so it did not come to a conclusion on the mailing list. Fred argued that the problem still exist and that we can fix it even if it is late. Nick propose that we could fix it for M1 of the next release 2018-09. Mélanie proposed that it is no worhty on a repsin but to just add a note on the web site about the spacing issue on windows. Mélanie will send a mail on the planning council mailing list to inform everyone about this decision.

2018-09 : Status

  • SimRel URLs

Fred has created the URLs 2018-09 according to the same pattern as before : See the bugzilla #536420

  • Update wiki

SimRel Plan Requirements on the wiki must be updated. Mélanie will update it and planning council members will review it.

  • Build maintenance

Fred explained that he is working on config optimization on the Jenkins and the Tycho builder in order to simplify the build job maintenance. Mikaël added that they are migrating to the new infra to test pipelines.

  • Opt-in process

The opt-in process is still not clear for everyone. It was written on the FAQ : "The period to join the simultaneous release is at the beginning of any cycle, four times a year. The project needs to declare its intention to join before the +0 (Friday) of the M1 release week." This means that projects should opt-in before July13th for the 2018-09 release. We have discussed by the past that the opt-in would be automatic and just opt-out was needed. We agreed during the call that the opt-in will occur once a year after the June release and means that project will be in for a year. Mélanie will send a mail on the mailing list to get the approbation of the planning council and then if it is ok will clarify the situation on the FAQ and on cross-project.

  • Missing deadlines

Some deadlines are not defined for CQ, IPLog... for 2018-09, Mélanie will send a mail to EMO in order to get those dates.
