Re: [ecf-dev] Luna comitment. ALL COMMITTERS PLEASE RESPOND

Hi Folks,

Ok...given expressed support from Markus, Wim, Harshana, and myself (Scott), I will declare on the cross-projects mailing list that ECF will participate in Luna simultaneous release (needs to be done before M4). Just to be clear, when it comes to April and May of 2014, I will need some assistance with meeting the SR requirements...and with the project releng.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Folks,

So far, I haven't heard back from any committers about what level of
personal commitment they would be willing and able to make for Luna work.  I
would like all committers to respond with a broad estimate what/how much
time they are able to commit to Luna SR work, so that I can decide whether
there will be sufficient commitment to allow our participation.  I need to
decide within a few weeks

So all committers...please respond...either to me privately or
publicly...whatever your preference.

Thanks,

Scott

Well, we don't have a script...except to say that:

1) There will be meeting requirements needs [1]
2) There will be releng needs
3) There will be planning and review materials needs
4) There will be unanticipated integration needs

and...of course you can view the yearly Luna plan and schedule here [1].

Hard to say. It would be nice if we had a script for the release so that we
could plan this thing.

Cheers,

Ok,

My summary of this question is that most believe that there is some
benefit...to consumers and/or ECF marketing/visibility...of participation in
the simultaneous release.  I certainly agree with this.  it's hard, however,
to quantify exactly how much benefit our consumers or we get...because we
don't know all of the different consumers, and even for the ones we know
about...we don't often know the details of how they consume ECF (e.g. via
Eclipse, SR repo, directly from us, using p2 repos or not, etc). And...we
don't really know what the EF will do WRT marketing associated with the SR.

Given this uncertainty, I think one thing to do is to focus on how we
(committers, contributors, and community) could do this...i.e. whether there
are committers that can/will dedicate time to meeting the Luna SR needs on
ECF (e.g. doing releng/build, dealing with IP issues, dealing with
integratin issues, creating review materials, etc).   As a person that's
done much of this over the past few years, I can say that it's not a lot of
work, and it's much less now than with some earlier releases, but during
'release times' (milestones and then the actual release next June)...it does
take some significant effort.

Just to get a feel for whether we will be able to execute on this, I would
like to propose that we (all committers) declare about how much they feel
they could contribute.  Of course it's understood that over the course of a
year people's availability could change for lots of reasons...so clearly
it's just an estimate.

Let's assume that all the ECF SR work amounts to 100 pts (whatever that
ends up translating to in hours/days, etc).

I (Scott) expect to be able to contribute 60 pts.

Other ECF committers (and others if you wish/are able):  please respond to
this email with an indication of how many 'points' they expect they would be
able and willing to give for SR work during this coming 9 months?  Please
respond...if you are able/willing to provide some work on ECF for the
SR...even if we get more that 100 pts total :).

The intention of this is for me to get an idea of whether we will be able
to perform the necessary SR work to meet this commitment.

Thanks,

Scott

Due to p2, we are in that situation already.
