  • Latest News
    • Martin -- No news; Javiers stuff not yet committed
    • DaveD -- JUnit adapted to refactorings; will look at M4 bugs
    • DaveM -- Refactored UI/Non-UI: "Organize Imports" should be sufficient for client code
    • Kushal -- vacation
    • Javier -- just returned from vacation; vote on Ted as committer
    • Other News --
  • Upcoming Work
    • M4 bugs: PLEASE REVIEW M4 BUGS!!
    • Inbox: REVIEW Assigned to Inbox
    • Timing: Martin on vacation most of October; Release Review Sept.27, M5 is Sept.22
      • Martins fixes will be in by Sept.27; manual test plans will exist
      • Executing the test plans, and bugfixing after that to be done by IBM mostly
      • Currently 142 bugs open, 18 P1/P2: P1/P2 bugs MUST be fixed by Sept. 15!
      • Fallback for Martin on Sep27: DaveD or Michael Scharf
    • Source Code Style & Cleanness
      • We deliver not only a "working product" but also source code
      • Clean source code increases contributor confidence, improves code readability, helps avoiding bugs
      • Compiler Warnings: See Committer Howto
        • Currently 484 Java warnings + 642 Javadoc warnings (Martin already fixed about 150 + 250)
      • Code Ownership:
      • Code Style and Format -- defer to next week
    • Change Requests -- defer to next week
    • Features: Jakarta-commons, JUnit-framework, Discovery, EFS-Experimental, WR-Terminal (bug 152826)
      • Jakarta-commons still important for Symbian
    • Refactorings: DaveM did most important stuff; consider "finished" for now, continue with hi-pri bugs
      • Subsystem Factory vs. Configuration: Going with Configuration for now, Martin started renaming *factory where he found it while working on compiler warnings.
      • Kushal IConnectorService
    • API Things
      • Martin did some minor extension point cleanup (rename), see build notes of N-builds
      • Service Error Reporting - bug 149472 - DaveD - API ok so far, final resolution? --> Create new different bug id for that one.
      • Parallel Services - bug 142478 all queries in background - DaveM
      • SystemRegistry.createHost for Javier
        • bug 150168 dont commit immediately - DaveD
          • Javier: not important at the moment; DaveD: probably fixed already
        • bug 150265 allow specifying subsystem types - DaveM - wait for Javier to return
          • Example: 1 Host providing shell and FTP (different categories)
          • Problem: createHost() only creates a host with 1 service -- See video for service discovery, DaveM to take a look at it
          • Need createHost() with a list of services
          • Look at this again next week
      • Making stuff internal - ssh, ftp: Martin; Core: List of candidates from DaveD?
    • Cleanup: API Doc (duplicates in interface and implementation!), JUnit tests, Context help, Test Plans, RSE-7-migration-docs, Copyrights, licenses
    • Bug Work - please observe priorities
    • Legal: JUnit (next monday?); Jakarta-commons (deferred!); WR Terminalview (passed!)
  • Other items
    • Tutorial: Update at the end of the release process, change instructions (re-use example code: We dont want to teach PDE)
    • Manual test plans - in work by Martin
    • EFS Experimental feature to be created by Martin
  • Free discussion -- feelings, comments, critics
