All teams are asked to evaluate risk
items for completing 3.5 on time and on plan. We are soon heading to the
final 3.5 milestone so major work should be wrapping up.
We had a discussion about memory performance.
We consistently require more heap than we did in the past for regular self-hosting
usage. We need to either significantly improve heap performance or increase
our default maximum heap settings. Frederic will coordinate investigation
of where the space is going, but all teams should be looking at their memory
usage with an eye to what has changed since 3.4, potential leaks, etc.
If anyone sees a problem opening the help system please

p2 has released new support for improving
interaction with slow/unresponsive repositories, and for providing better
explanations for installs that cannot complete due to unsatifiable constraints.
Please try these out and give feedback via bugzilla.
