[equinox-dev] Provisioning Symposium at Eclipse Summit Europe


First off, the Eclipse Summit Europe is coming and is looking like a great event.

Last year there were a series of very cool symposia during the conference.  This year that set has been expanded and now occupy a full day prior to the main event.

Tim Webb (Maya) and I are hosting a Provisioning  Symposium with the intention of following on from the Ganymede Provisioning workshop held in the spring.  That workshop was very successful as a context-setting and initial direction setting effort.  Several key connections were made and fruit of those connections has been born.  In the intervening months both the Equinox provisioning effort (now called "p2") and Maya have made progress and much code has been written.  This symposium brings together committers and interested parties to report on and evaluate current provisioning initiatives, sketch efficient and practical solutions to real provisioning problems and identify opportunities for cooperation.

The symposium is structured as a relatively informal gathering where the focus is on discussion, not presentation.  To facilitate that discussion we are asking potential participants to send in a position paper describing their interests.  This does not have to be anything fancy or long.  Just outline what your use cases, interests, code, ...  See the symposium description for more details.

Hope to see you there.
