Progress on Action Items

  • Improving user experience in finding right function to install. For latest ideas, see
bug 459905 - Create a Marketplace for the simultaneous release.
Overall, would be "driven" by Eclipse Foundation, but they would need help from top level projects, and the Planning Council.

New Business

- Its original intent was to say "Yes, new projects and features can join SRs" -- without requiring Planning Council exception, if they meet the requirements set out in that policy.
- But, as we clarified some wording/sections, especially the one about "no major releases", intended to avoid breaking API changes (for train, and adopters), that seems to be oriented towards only "new features", but, in a way, rules out "new projects" (since, by technical definition, would be a "major" version change from "nothing" to "1.0.0"?) But, I do not believe was the intent. After all, if it is completely new API, it would hardly have the ability to break anyone (at least, at API level ... "fitting in" and not breaking anyone, was the purpose of "getting into SR early".
- Is this confusing? Should it be clarified?
