Track inactive projects

Wayne raises the fact that a handfull of projects are not paying attention and does not meet the requirements. The idea is that projects should update their aggrcon file to declare that they are in the SimRel. If they do not modify their aggrcon, they will be out. Today, Wayne is taking care of chasing these different projects, pushing a gerrit request to remove the aggrcon file of these projects and then following the thread. It is time consuming for him. It was proposed to automatically declare the project as out if the aggr file was not touch. That is not so simple as removing a project could have some important consequences for other projects depending on it. There is a communication aspect that should be taken into consideration. It was also proposed to have a clear process to declare the project intent to be in. It already existed in the past and it was not so successful. The idea is to trying to identify who is not taking care instead of punishing everyone with a new process. Fred proposed to assist Wayne on the aggcon file tracking. Another possibility is to turn off the build a week before removing them officially, in order to detect the consequences.


  • Need a chair for the next call on April 3rd, Mélanie will not be able to organize/join : Martin Lippert proposed to take care of the call. Thanks again Martin!
  • Mélanie will prepare the plan for the 2019-09 release.
