Yes, it's getting to be that time of
year again when we start looking beyond the last release and forward to
next June. Galileo will be released in June 2009 and we need to figure
out what it is we want to work on over the next 9-10 months in DTP.
The DTP PMC has put together a high
level list of what we'd like to focus on (http://wiki.eclipse.org/DTP_Galileo_Planning),
but we're very interested in what you in the DTP community have to say
about DTP direction. What do you want to see us work on? What can you help
us with? What pain points do we need to address to make DTP adoption easier?
So... If you have input on where you'd
like to see DTP head, now is the time to pipe up. (Not that we're not listening
all year round, but we need to at least have a general idea of what we
should be working on by the middle of September so we can get our plans
We appreciate any and all comments.
Don't be shy. Let us know what we've done right, what we need to do more
of, and what we've missed completely.
Give it some thought and let us know
via the usual channels -- the wiki, newsgroups, mailing lists, bugzilla
-- whatever's easiest. And let's work on making DTP better over the long
Thanks in advance!
