DTP PMC Meeting, April 15, 2008

Back to DTP PMC Meeting Page


  • Brian Fitzpatrick
  • Sheila Sholars
  • Linda Chan
  • John Graham



  • Apologies in advance if I have to bounce out briefly
  • Talk about some SY staffing issues and what's being done
  • Talk about how to promote incubator projects
  • Open discussion


  • Promoting incubator projects -- different to promote a component than a project
    • A bit premature for Ganymede, but have two maintenance releases coming up in the fall and winter, though we can't add new features/components to maintenance releases -- or next coordinated release in 2009
    • Don't want to promote too quickly to set a precedent
    • Pick and choose what bits and pieces of existing procedure for project incubation as applies to components
    • Broader process issues -- what does it take to graduate from incubation to DTP? Once we get a policy in place, if Eclipse comes up with a plan down the line, we can contribute to it.
    • Get this incubator project into the build specially - calling it "incubator" -- get it into Xiaoying's process
    • Become committers, get builds working, and demonstrate to the PMC that the tests are passing, code works, community is interested -- don't want to seem arbitrary or not coordinated
    • Needs regular committers working on this code on an active basis
