Kepler SR2

  • Any issues?
There is one known, mysterious p2-update issue (discovered after 'release'): bug 427148
I am surprised not hearing more complaints from users? (but, does seem "intermittent", somehow).
I am surprised not many projects, apparently, tested "update" on Windows?
Anyone hearing things questions/answers on newsgroups, etc.? Is that how "work around" is known?

Luna Planning

  • M6 is soon!
  • Plan for EclipseCon meeting (to be chaired by Ian)?

Progress on Action Items

  • Luna+1 name: 'Mars' came back as "ok".
  • Improved "aggregator examples/doc". (dw -- no progress).
  • [Orbit plan (dw -- no formal progress)]

New Business

  • Not "direct" Planning Council business, but Wayne asked us, as Eclipse Leaders, to look at two bugs:
Can anyone reproduce? See similar things?
  • bug 420511 No easy access to Eclipse version number/release name for bug tracker
In general, Wayne's concern was that it's "too hard" for users to report bugs ... to pick from the scores of projects and hundreds of components, and feared some get "ignored" if in wrong place. One member pointed out its even hard for committers to know where to route! One suggestion was made that as a best practice, if a project gets a bug that "they don't know where it goes" that they move it to cross-project component, asking if anyone knows where it should go. The idea being that many (but not all) projects have people subscribed to cross-project component in-box.

Next Meeting

  • EclipseCon "face-to-face" on Sunday (thanks Ian!) and "joint meeting" (Wayne did say he'd chair that one).
  • April 2, 2014 - Regular First Wednesday Meeting


2013 EclipseCon face-to-face follow-through action items. For original meeting notes, see Planning_Council/March_24_2013 and for discussion leading to action items, see Planning_Council/April_10_2013. For last status update, see Planning_Council/May_8_2013.
