[mylyn-context-dev] Fwd: [cross-project-issues-dev] Status and outlook for M7

Looks like MFT got caught in the M7 removals. We'll need to look into getting it back on the train. I have opened this bug:

378601: re-enable MFT SDK feature for Juno M7

Yes ... its here, M7 week! And, I'm already giving status!

First thing to note it that we now have a stand-alone 4.2 primary build from the Eclipse Project, so for the first time we have a pure and correct 4.2 repo. In the past, some things from 3.8 were "slipping in" through aggregation due to the way the platform was producing and partially (unknowingly) combining 3.8 and 4.2. But no more, 4.2 only.

One impact of this, is the bundle 'org.eclipse.help.appserver' is no longer available ... it was actually removed in 4.1, but it is being left in the 3.x stream, even though 3.8 does not use it. It now correctly does _not_ show up in 4.2 repo via aggregation.

And, this "broke" BIRT ... so, I disabled that, which rippled across 3 or 4 others that depend on BIRT charting.
I hope BIRT can live without that old bundle and use the jetty server now provided by the platform (and used by the help system, in both 3.8 and 4.2).
http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.common.git/plain/bundles/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/porting/4.2/incompatibilities.html?h=R4_HEAD#help-appserver

Then there were the (fairly) usual breakages in RAP runtime and Virgo based on assumptions on certain platform specific versions, so I disabled those to get a green build, and promote an initial M7 version to staging. Be sure to check the reports (based on staging) to get as much cleaned up as possible before M7:
http://build.eclipse.org/juno/simrel/reporeports/

In all, the following files have disabled repositories or features. It looks worse than it is, but we need to get in completely "enabled" in the next few days (or, remove it, if its some old thing that should not even be there any longer).

As always questions and clarifications are welcome.

Thanks everyone,
