Photon status

Everything is okay. Problems with Batik that had to be re-downgraded to 1.6 for several modeling projects (Sirius, Papyrus, Birt...) due t packaging problems in Orbit. Tips from Wim are no longer shown in a dialog in the EPPs.

2018-09 status

Everyone is ok wit the proposed planning:

The name issue was again discussed. Only Month-Year will be visible in the dialog, in the splaschscreen & in the about dialog.

Wayne will work on the opt-in process for July or August. Handfull projects are the same years after years, not evolving. Question was asked by Wayne if we should make a policy for that ?

Architecture council updates the EDP, early days nothing to report yet.

More and more re-spins occured during the last milestones. It was discussed how we should avoid that ? RC should contain only bugs fixes. How could we enforce that ? Should we provide a policy ? Some projects are not paying attention leading to late contribution.
