- Doug Schaefer, Serge Beauchamp, Kenn Hussey, Szymon Brandys
- Not much new happened this week. Everyone has been busy on other things. A lot of people are busy working towards M7 of Galileo.
- Had a great discussion on REST and what it would look like for resources.
- Every resource is identified with URI
- Use search to find resources that are interesting
- But what do you do with the parent/child hierarchies and the project navigator?
- The URI paths still represent structure like this, but no standard way to get list of children in REST
- It's a new work flow, this structure is less important now that we have search
- Doug after the meeting: We could derive the structure from the indexes driving the search to satisfy the curmudgeons
- This led to an interesting discussion on a big missing piece of e4, the IDE
- So focused on being more than an IDE at Eclipse that we're neglecting it
- We should look at workflow improvements as part of e4.
- Mylyn is doing to some really cool things, is there more of this we can do as part of e4?
- IRC irc://#eclipse-e4 parallel to the meeting
- e4 update from yesterday's e4/Meeting Minutes/Status 20090416 call
- Nothing new there either.
- Next meeting slot (1-May) is a public holiday in many countries, how to proceed?
- We can have it anyway. My (Doug's) calendar is pretty full to move this to another day.
