Re: [equinox-dev] Re: Incubator security patches


Jay,

I opened bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=118832 to cover releasing the osgi framework patch for 3.2.  Joe, your e-mail address is not a valid address in eclipse bugzilla so I could not cc you on the bug.

Unfortunately I cannot speak for the rest of the eclipse component owners.  Should the security incubator team be opening bugs against the other components to at least make them aware of the security work that is going on?

Tom

We would love to have these patches and all the plugins we've "fixed up"  migrated to Eclipse 3.2.  


We've only been able to produce and post patches to a few of the plugins we've actually modified.  All the plugins marked 100% reviewed and "Committed to Security Branch"  may have code changes as well.  Many of the plugins now include an OSGi permissions.perm file too.


If anyone else is interested in seeing this effort (creating an RCP platform that can run with a security manager on) move forward, please SPEAK UP.  We are in close talks with Jeff M (et al), but the Eclipse 3.2 deadline is quickly approaching.  There is fair amount of "grunt" work involved to reach this point and I'm not sure I convince my manager(s) to allow time for us to do it again.


The SWORD4J tools have been a HUGE help in reaching this point too.
