1) Apologies etc.
Mike Norman, Scapa

Jorg Bischof, SAP (substituting for Gian Franco Bonini)
Don Ebright, Compuware
George Din, FOKUS
Tyler Thessin, Intel
Melanie Woods, Scapa
Rob Sinclair, IBM

2) Minutes and matters arising
3.0.0 driver was released during the course of last week. This is a
major achievement from all involved.
3) PMC and Eclipse interaction
Tyler submitted the charter documents package to Mike Milinkovich on
June 30th. The information from these documents is due to be made
available on the website, but this has not yet happened. It was felt
that the majority of the documents were in a reasonably good state,
although the "non-mandatory" documents such as the development plan
required additional work. Mike
has made some amendments to the project descriptions to reflect recent
changes in the overall structure of the project.
ACTION: Mike to send updated development plan document to Tyler
Further discussion regarding the resource required to lead a project was
held. A project lead would be required to commit to travelling around 4
times per year (quarterly, F2F meeting, events such as EclipseCon,
LinuxWorld etc.). In addition, it was expected that the lead would
contribute 1-2 days of their time to the management of the project. In
the main, the project leads also have some responsibility for products
within their organisations.
Don is due to speak with Mike Milinkovich later today and will de-brief
this management group of any decisions taken regarding leading the
monitoring project following that call.
ACTION: Don to de-brief management team later today by email.
4) Operation of the current plan
Following the release of the 3.0 driver, the teams are now focused on
3.0.1 bug fix release, with some initial work on the 3.1 release.
Discussion whether it is the right time to shift to the new development
structure as outlined in the charter documents. It was felt that the old
structure should be persisted for the next couple of weeks.
ACTION: Mike to email hyades-dev to let the teams know of the current
position and that this will be reviewed over the next few weeks.
5) Technical forward plan
Nothing to report
6) Internal and external communication
PMC announcement. A draft press release has now been circulated and
approved by the majority of the management group, with the exception of
Don, who will advise within the next 24 hours should this position have
changed following conference call with Mike Milinkovich. We already have
Intel's approval via Ling Yao. Serge, Jorg and George all provided
confirmation of their respective organisations' approval.
Once the media release is in a stable state, the Eclipse PR agency will
begin to try to engage with analysts and the media although the release
will not be distributed to any editor or journalist that is not willing
to abide by the embargo on this news. It is expected that the agency
(Patterson & Associates) will be able to begin engaging with media and
analysts by the end of this week, or the beginning of next week at the
latest. The media release will be discussed at the Eclipse PR team call
tomorrow (Wednesday) and any comments will be forwarded to the
ACTION: Melanie to feedback comments from PR team call.
A Q&A document is also required to provide additional information to
analysts and media. Mike, Ling Yao (Intel) and Melanie will work on the
first draft of this document and bring to the management group for
comments and suggestions. It is hoped that the first draft of this
document will be ready by the end of this week, so that the PR agency
can have a stable version by the beginning of next week. This Q&A
document might also be posted alongside the proposal documents.
ACTION: Mike, Ling and Melanie to work on drafting a Q&A document.
A number of individuals from the group will be at LinuxWorld. Tyler
intends to be there and to give a presentation on the Test and
Performance Tools Platform Project. IBM will also be there, and either
Serge or Harm will try to attend. Mike is also committed to attending.
ACTION: Tyler to advise on status of his LinuxWorld presentation
Next Planning Group meeting: Tuesday, 13th July 2004, - 6pm CET / 5pm
