Babel / Development Status Meetings / 2009-06-22




  • Build status
    • I borrowed a team of 3 people to test the Babel RC2 language pack update site
    • We performed the test on 3 different platforms (Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1) in the top 7 most complete languages (Simplified Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Spanish)
    • We did not find any problems with the Babel RC2 language pack update site
    • In general, I think the Babel language packs are working as designed
    • I20090614-0400 finished
    • I will run the p2 publisher (which will take about 15 hours to finish) and the XSL transform against the build manually
    • I will perform a smoke test on the update sites and language packs
    • If everything is okay, we can rename I20090614-0400 to RC2 on Thursday or Friday
    • We will exercise the same process next week and declare Golden Master next Friday, June 26th
    • Denis, can we start the I-build on Friday morning or Saturday morning so I can run the p2 publisher and transform processes during the weekend and have a build ready next Monday?
  • Work items
    • p2 metadata generator is deprecated, we should use p2 publisher
    • Possible to port the p2 metadata generator to p2 publisher?
    • Need to integrate the p2 publisher step and XSL transformation step into the build process
    • Monitor bug 247099 Ability to disable greedy behavior of optional dependencies
