  • Do we want to ship the apache http client in p2?
  • What is left before integration:
    • Renaming bundles.txt?
    • Changing namespaces in MD
    • Adding version to metadata
    • Shape of the features
  • Moving code
  • Changing bug bucket
  • Do we switch ECF now, or do we wait for the EFC I builds?
  • User authentication when connecting to repo, what do we want to do in 1.0?
  • Status on Update UI compatibility and certificates UI

    • need to find out the advantages/disadvantages. To discuss with ECF team.
  • Metadata versioning
    • Should we version metadata files at IU level
    • Further discussion in bug report
  • User authentication
    • Need to prompt for username/password when contacting repository that requires login
    • Copy the approach using in CVS - minimally cache passwords in memory, ideally use security key store API

    • Have a simple patch, but doesn't show parent/child relationships
    • Talk to security team - should have same dialog in Help>About.
