Action items from TM/Meetings/5-Feb-2013

  • All Review bug backlogs (Fix target milestones; review / triage incoming high-severity issues)
  • Anna monitor jar signing plugin
  • Dave D
    • Update Website Docs where they refer to CVS (some done, more to do)
    • Downloads Page - recommend manually editing a downloads page; most smaller projects do very simply; (done)
    • Maybe update the CVS repo putting in a "readme.txt" that project has migrated to git (still to do)
    • Webpages partially out-of-date --> migrate to Wiki; Wayne got something "almost done" that can be auto-generated (PMI - still examining, should be able to do some simplification)
    • Create R3_4_maintenance branch on Feb 25 (done)
    • Publish update sites and download pages for Juno RC2 Release Candidates (done)
    • Publish update sites and download pages for RC2 (done)

  • Manuel Complete legacy builds

Master branch builds

  • Put Repo information into the plugins ? - Currently building on Tycho 0.15, but 0.16 is available
  • Validate Hudson master build output against what we had, file bugs for anything incomplete (done)
  • Some goodies (eg help index; .api_description; scmurl in MANIFEST.MF) might be missing - not necessarily re-do all of them, but document whats different

Legacy branch builds

3.4.2 (Juno SR2)

  • Jars signing was fixed
  • Web pages for RC builds are now active - somewhat automated with PHP
  • Product and PTP problem with RSEInitJob scheduling. Moved scheduling to UI plugin to fix for now.
  • Some issues found with update site and version numbering. To be fixed in 3.4.2+.
  • Accessibility is receiving a heavy emphasis from US Government. No federal sales allowed unless compliant. TM is out of compliance in a couple of areas. DaveM has fixes for most issues. Needed in 3.4.2+ by end of March. Platform, BIRT, and CDT are addressing as well.
    • bug 192758 – [accessibility] Editing of the properties in the New Connection Wizard cannot be done entirely by keyboard
    • bug 210149 – [accessibility] Remote Systems Preference page not fully accessible with keyboard
    • bug 270618 – [terminal][accessibility] Accessibility issues with Terminal view
    • bug 400735 - Accessibility issues for web document


  • contribution made for M5 but broke PTP - "fixed" in master branch
  • will update Kepler to Java 1.6 prior to M6
  • M6+1 is March 18 - API "freeze"?
  • readying web pages for M builds

Web site & wiki maintenance

  • site continues to be updated
