Current Work

  • Skype Call Quality
  • Intensive TM 2.0.1 Testing on Thursday
  • Reminder: Aug 30th was RC1 as per TM 2.0 Ramp down Plan for Europa#Ramp_down_for_Europa_SR1_.2828-Sep-2007.29, no risky fixes for 2.0.1 after the 30th!
    • Bugzilla TM "3.0" target milestone has been created; creating also "2.0.2" milestone; note that 2.0.2 bugs MUST be checked in to the branch, which is some effort, so this should be reserved for really important things only
    • Branch not yet forked off, but policies do apply (need review)
    • OK to check in to HEAD, Martin can merge to the branch
    • Need 1-committer review, and Verification of fixes in an I-build after that time (RC1)
  • Reminder: Start preparing / planning for the DSDP/TM/Face-to-face Meeting Toronto 17-Sep-2007
    • Room with outside internet access should be available in customer briefing center
    • Xuan: How to prepare?
      • 1. Make up your minds WHAT you want to achieve for 3.0; we should come up with plan items, priorities, and target milestones
      • 2. Get initial ideas how to achieve this, such that we can discuss architecture and approaches.
    • What's a Coding Camp? - Martin: We'll do a planning meeting, but also with hands on the code for prototyping and experimenting
    • DaveD: Persistence, User-Defined Actions - Explain the plans, discuss them
    • DaveM: Need to think
    • MartinO: UI/Non-UI; New-connection-wizard: more user friendly while keeping it pluggable
    • Kevin will be dedicating some time (up to 20 hrs a week)
    • Rupen will be continuing (tentative)
  • DaveD: -
    • bug 194802 - NPE when restoring; might be gone in the meantime, analyze / reproduce? - closed WORKSFORME
      • What to do in the future? - Martin: put a note on bug 202866, in the future we should move all SystemRegistry to non-UI and ensure that whatever client gets a SystemRegistry already gets an initialized one (i.e. synchronous initialization, like Eclipse core.resources). But we can discuss this in the future.
    • bug 198395 - Connect dstore with expired password - need to look at perl APIs for pwd access - not for 2.0.1
    • bug 197036 - Avoid plugin activation, dont create all filterpools on startup - not for 2.0.1
    • bug 176577 - Moving hosts up+down - looking at for 2.0.1 today
  • DaveM: - looking at these this week
    • bug 196662 - Refresh queries on dispatch thread - initial problem fixed but not ideally; some additional changes will be needed but they need API related to bug 187739 and an exists() method in the SystemViewElementAdapter -- defer after 2.0.1
    • bug 200557 - Review dnd from Project Explorer (bug 192704 ok
    • bug 199565, bug 199566, bug 199568 - Deadlock issues due to synchronized methods calling out; will be able to fix
  • Kevin: - bug 168219 recursive delete w/read-only moved to "Future"
  • Xuan: - bug 202686 - going to disable or fix supertransfer? - Found solution for two issues, a third one (refresh) is still open due to race condition (works during debug but fails in nondebug); if unable to find the issue, will disable supertransfer in the Preferences.
    • Martin: Can use in order to make the temporary zip deleted on disconnect dstore;
    • Xuan: Seems to be more a view update issue than actually on the Server
  • Javier: - will look at bug 199773 FTP upload as binary
    • Found a problem with UI/Non-UI splitting, because Ascii/Binary properties are living in UI -- FTPService gets wrong isBinary tag (DaveM: DStore - RemoteFile#isBinary() seems to be OK) - Javier will further work on it
    • bug 202758 FTP hangs completely due to missing server answer for completePendingCommand() - not reproducable by Martin, but reproducable by Michael; Michael writing a Unittest
  • Martin: - bug 202630 what is the meaning of the "default private system profile"? - WR Workbench automatically fills this from a Registry. Should RSE ensure that there is always exactly one default private profile? Into what profile should connections be auto-generated... should there be a "WR Registry" profile? But then, what if users create connections themselves, would they create them into the "WR Registry" profile?
    • DaveM: Original design was that there is always exactly one "default private" profile, which is not intended to be shared;
    • DaveD: The notion of "default private" is legacy -- all profiles should be inherently shareable; default private is a persisted attribute, but probably should not be (Martin is OK with having a persisted attribute "private" - but the attribute "default" can not really be persisted because we don't know who claims to default)
    • Martin: ensureDefaultPrivate() is not consistent with getDefaultPrivate() -- if it already finds an active default private one, it should not try creating a new one;
    • Will need to think about how to address in our product
    • bug 202416 NPE when loading profile: made it more robust, but how could it come that RSE profile data is wiped with zeros? What happens when an IOException occurs while saving a profile, can it become corrupted or is there a safeguard?
    • bug 202866 Exceptions when browsing during early init - DaveM please review
  • Uwe: -
  • Rupen: -
  • Michael: - Terminal Performance branch: 300k lines/sec on Windows, 8000 lines/sec on Linux; everybody is OK with putting this into 2.0.1
