Re: [dtp-dev] Re: [dtp-connect-dev] Connectivity Project - Countdown to Callisto

Thanks John.

I should have clarified this 24 hour rule better.  This was based on the
assumption that the work had already been approved by the PMC and would
simply allow developers to provide any feedback on the resulting changes
prior to them being committed.  I did not mean to imply that any new
features, API changes or UI changes could be contributed with a simple note
to the dev list using an opt out policy.

I hope this helps to clarify things.

Sorry again,

The first two of these items are fine. With respect to the third (the 24
hour rule), this is not up to the project leads to decide -- the PMC will
be writing a "ramp down" policy for DTP Callisto that will specific the
engagement rules for such things. (Look for this policy to be published by
the end of the week.) For the time being, you can make any bug fixes not
impacting API or the user interface. If you have a change impacting API or
user interface, then you'll need to get two "+1" votes from the PMC before
proceeding. (The same is true for new features, until the feature list is
reviewed by the PMC today and particular sets are pre-approved.) Once the
ramp down policy is published this week, the date ranges and conditions for
work will be clearly spelled out and applied across all DTP projects for

Hey all,

The following describes the list of features and bugzilla entries scheduled
for inclusion in the Callisto release.  It also describes committer
guidelines moving forward.

The DTP connectivity wiki page has been updated with a list of
feature/enhancement requests for implementation within the Callisto
release.  These features are awaiting approval from the PMC.

All bugzilla entries have been assigned and prioritized.  If your favorite
bug is not scheduled for inclusion in the Callisto release or has a lower
priority than you'd like it to have, please amend the entry in question
with your rationale for increasing (or decreasing) its priority.  (Note,
all entries targeted for Callisto have a target release of 1.0.)

For all new features, APIs and API changes, committers must notify the
dtp-dev mailing list prior to committing their changes.  We'll be using the
24 hour rule, so if no objections are aired within that time period, it is
assumed everyone is OK with the changes.  (Note, this does not mean you
cannot object to a change if you happen to miss the window.)  If you object
to a proposed change, please state your objection along with a proposal
that addresses your concerns.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc....
