Date, Time and Location

  • Confirmed: Tuesday 18-Nov 19:00 dinner together at hotel nestor.
  • It will be an informal meeting in the sense that we won't make any decisions since not enough members will be available.
  • We will, however, have an agenda and chat about a few things relevant to the AC.


  • Mentorship: Talk about the rationale, process and advantages of mentorship. Result of the sessions should be an actual Wiki page about mentorship (somebody to bring a Laptop to edit).
  • AC Web Appearance: Improve the AC Wiki to have important information better highlighted (e.g. how to report an AC bug, how to ask for a mentor) and make the visual appearance more pleasant. Also, improving and clarifying the self-description of what the AC is.
  • Threats of unmanageably large number of dependencies - RT, SMILA and consumed non-Eclipse libraries (Georg Schmidt)
  • Reducing Bloat - How to improve re-use of functionality across all of Eclipse
  • Interfacing with (L)GPL'd libs - what we can or can't do, and how to approach the Board
  • Chat with Bjorn about the "new" vs. the "old" AC
  • Improving our Architecture/Links Collection
