Post Photon SimRel status

After the last call, it was asked to Ed to bring at the board level our discussion about naming & planning council role. See the previous minutes & the bugzilla for details. The conclusion of this topic for the board is that the planning council is for all the Eclipse projects and the Simultaneaous Release could include all Eclipse projects. The board does not care about the naming. The planning council concludes that the naming must be inclusive enough. It was decided to use the following pattern for the name : Eclipse MM-YYYY.

The urls should be : SimultaneousReleases/year/month.

Dani explains that the platforms will just drop the bits for M1 & M3 in order that people can build EPP & do tests. In order to be aligned with the release train the first platfrm milestone will be named M2.

Then it was discussed that we should care about moving the release dates to be able to keep up to date with the java releases in order to reduce the effort of making a specific Java support release as we did this year.

Finally, Ed pointed the fact that we should recommend to projects to have a latest repo in order to easily get the latest nightly build.

Planning council call

We had few participants again during this call, remind that when you are not available for the call you must send a representative. Some of the participants suggested to update the call time, Mélanie will send a mail to vote for a new time for this recurring call. Mélanie will contact also recurring missing members to remind them to participate or to propose a new representative.
