WTP Development Status Meeting

Remember, any committer can add an agenda item. Typically, short announcements or news items go in the "Announcements" section at the beginning. Longer items or issues requiring discussion should go in the "Other business" section at end.

Gerrit requests

The following requests have been sitting for more than 2 weeks with no response, or have been reviewed but not merged. Help me help you!


    [ERROR]   Missing requirement: org.eclipse.wst.server.core 1.10.0.qualifier requires 'bundle org.eclipse.update.core [3.2.0,4.0.0)' but it could not be found
  • [jeetools] - inject webtools nexus repos so parent pom can be resolved; by default build with Tycho 1.0 (even if parent pom still at a lower version)</strike
  • [webservices] - replace maven-to-p2 deps with proper p2 ones in update to java 8 BREE. comment out the non-working thing for now, since it prevents building locally outside domain. Add process timeout so we don't wait 30 mins for a test to fail

Patch requests









  • Blocked by above merges/builds
  • TODO:
    • (?) complete merge plan / decouple circular deps; script merge, apply merge
