Luna Planning

New Format formally approved. Was not much discussion, other than to say it was clearer and (main document) shorter. Mission accomplished! Thanks Dani and Neil!
Dani or Neil will rename old one with "obsolete" or date, or something, and rename "proposed" to be main one.
Once renamed, etc., David will break "Policy FAQ" out into separate document, and provide link at bottom, along with other "additional links".
  • Any new requirements? Any to remove or change?
If we ask people to specify exact feature (or repository) versions in b3 aggregator files (see bug 419746) is that a new "requirement" or implementation detail? For some, it would require "more work" and/or better tools to generate the files more easily.
Next meeting we'll discuss any new/modified requirements, if any, and formally approve requirements for Luna.
  • After the meeting, realized I never had incorporated "Doug's wording" about new features in SRs into our Policy FAQ. I have now done so. See SimRel/Simultaneous_Release_Policy_FAQ, the note that starts "[added April, 2013, modified November 2013]".

Progress on Action Items

  • GSoC project for "Development Channel"? (Wayne)
While GSoC is over, for a year, Wayne will at least recall history and open a bug for this..
  • Improved "aggregator examples/doc". (dw -- no progress).
  • [Orbit plan "by end of August". (dw -- no progress)]
  • Complete Google Calendar. (dw)
  • Compute Luna SR dates. (dw)

Next Meeting

  • December 4, 2013 - Regular First Wednesday Meeting
