Feel free to edit, but not during the meeting

  • Martin - Update from yesterday's e4/Meeting Minutes/Status 20090122 call:
    • Request that the Resources team inform the e4 UI team about any "user-visible" changes or changes in workflow. We should strive for consistency, and a single "story" of getting things done rather than multiple competing concepts.
    • John has direct contact to Kevin McGuire and can act as the link, install e4 with serge's patches and show it to Kevin
    • M1 (feb 6) build will go on the EclipseCon stick, so if we want to show anything it should go in there
  • Serge to backport his changes for bug 252996 resource filters, bug 229633 virtual groups and relative links into 3.5 ?
    • John: Serge's current e4 work can be installed into 3.5, so if products want to leverage that they can install it into a 3.5 product
    • Could see the work backported in early 3.6
    • Proper support of the infrastructure (drag and drop, etc) requires changes in many other plugins... how to announce that? How to get those other bundles modified for e4? - AI Serge send an E-Mail to the e4 list
      • John: We can accept more plugins in e4, but the more we have the more merge issues we'll have. If Eric Moffat already has a repository for his backward compatibility work, we should re-use his bundles
      • Martin: experiment with better tooling for merges such as git - behind the scenes as a start
  • Chris - discussion on bug 215261 physical store stuff
  • Doug - still wants to do a simple EFS implementation for remote (next week)
