Feel free to edit, but not during the meeting

  • Serge to blog about his changes - will do once tried out with the downloadable e4 builds
  • John: Should make sure to prepare a build for M1 (Feb-6) that actually works (also discussed in the e4 E4/Meeting Minutes/Status 20090108)
  • Chris - bug 215261: who would care about the new physical/logical API?
    • Intended for external tools (distinguish physical files from stuff in a database / archive / webserver etc)
    • Should not break any existing functionality
    • Doug wants to get rid of special logical/physical handling in CDT
    • Martin: the "adapter" approach seems to be in line with what Java7 file system API does with attributes (PosixAttributes, Win32Attributes, ...): when I know that I need to feed an external tool, try to adapt the IFileStore to an IPhysicalFileStore
  • Doug wants to do "CDT Remote" tutorial at EclipseCon without RSE
    • Chris: Problems with drag&drop / copy&paste from project explorer into remote FS
    • Martin: Needs to file + prioritize RSE bug
    • Doug wants an EFS implementation for quick turnaround / testing - something to drive into e4 resources
  • Special @since tags for API Reports?
    • Martin: might not be necessary thanks to API Tooling Reports, but will continue investigation
    • @since tags: put the version of the bundle (e.g. 3.100); should be easy to search&replace if going for different version number
