Maintenance Schedule

Helios SR2


bug 338310 - eclipse.ini missing after Helios SR2 upgrade; fails to launch

Please comment in bug, soon, if thoughts on which option. Leaning towards Option 2 (hand edit) as being the least risky

No definitive explanation, yet, as to what happened to cause this change in case.


Too many typos!

ToDo Items

  • How is the RoadMap coming along? (Wayne)
Progress, but slow. Wayne still working with individual projects that have not provided one (and maybe didn't even know they needed one ... so, sounds like some PMC/mentoring guidance needed?).
Wayne would like to "extend" the meaning and use of some fields in project meta-data so there projects could summarize their release, etc., instead of sending email or making part of docuware. More could be automated then. Overall summaries provided, etc. Wayne will (likely) send note to cross-project soon with this request.
Sounds like Wayne's made some excellent tools to ease and improve the quality of the process. He'll be posting more notes soon (approximately Friday).
TODO: Platform needs to have their own central page, like WTP does ... or, update this wiki every milestone. It currently points to M4 N&N.
  • TODO (from previous meeting): dw to add/create add a FAQ item around "what to handle 3.7 vs. 4.1". Will draw from previous working notes.

Next Meeting

  • EclipseCon Meetings: Sunday, March 20, At Hyatt, Napa Room.
3-4 (Pacific Time) Planning Council face-to-face meeting
