I think the move to manifest files should
be trivial to do and fairly low risk.
The move to single jarring is a little
more problematic as one of the connectivity plug-ins and the plug-ins that
depend on it are using absolute paths to access the graphic files in that
plug-in. Some code changes would be required. We could have
this done by 4/7 depending on what the priorities are for the connectivity
sub-project. I'll leave that decision to Rob.

[dtp-dev] Feedback from DTP 0.7 Release
The DTP 0.7 Release Review was conducted this morning at 8AM PST. DTP
passed this review, and hence is one step closer to making the 0.7 release!
Some items from the review:
> Update Release Review slide deck to correct minor typos and clarify
points. Status: John is working on this, expects completion by EOD 3/8.
> Need to provide more complete project information/status meta-data
site. Status: John is investigating.
> Need to update web site to new format. Status: Planned for post
> Post experiences learned by DTP regarding best practices from other
projects, and so on in a location easily accessible by the community at
large. Status: Post EclipseCon, John will start to do this.
> Suggestion to update all DTP plug-ins to use manifest files for 0.7:
Out of the 43 plug-ins distributed in 0.7 (including 3.1 compatibility
support), 24 currently use manifest files. Ideally we would like to update
the remaining ones to use manifest files as well before the final 0.7
build. It was mentioned that there might be an automated way of doing so
John will look into this.
Committers: What are our thoughts about attempting this change now? Any
experience to share?
> Suggestion to jar all DTP plug-ins. Status: Planned post 0.7. The
community would like to see this in place by DTP 1.0M6 (4/7) if possible.
Committers: Thoughts? Can we do this by DTP 1.0M6?
