----------
 Outreach

 Discussion Topic
------------------

Platform UI:
- CVS tags: Should we be more consistent with how we tag for I builds?
  - Either I2008... or v2008...
  - can the releng tool provide a default?
- How do we deal with API that leaked internal types?
  -Is it OK to break binary compatibility in cases like this?
  - See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=224390 for a concrete
    example
