  • John Arthorne
  • Mike Wilson
  • Oleg Besedin
  • Paul Webster
  • Silenio Quarti
  • Simon Kaegi
  • Tom Schindl


  • Action sets now track visibility correctly
  • Need to remove min/max icons from views (or implement min/max)
  • There is an extra border around tabs on ETabFolder that should be removed
  • Should be able to get most menu commands working, but need to check on case-by-case basis.
  • File>Save absolutely needs to work
    • Correct dirty affordance
    • Prompt when dirty editor is closed
    • File>Save As would be nice
  • Need callback from model when:
    • Model element visibility changes
    • When model element goes away (close)
  • Use cases
    • Be able to use e4 platform to build and run a simple e4 application (without compatibility)
    • Be able to run with compatibility layer included and incorporate old views/etc.
  • Rename PartRenderer/PartFactory
  • Split renderer extensions into another plug-in to allow someone else to contribute renderers.
  • JavaScript debugging protocol taking shape, there won't be an Eclipse debug client for 0.9. Currently just have unit tests for the client.
  • End-game process
    • Get another committer to +1 any changes starting next week. You can ask McQ if there isn't someone more closely related to the change.
    • For this week, there is no formal process, but we need to make sure we focus on the most important things first, because time is running out.
