The fix for http://bugs.eclipse.org/_258680_ and
http://bugs.eclipse.org/237936 is the one thing that could motivate
moving IMHO. In the absence of any other critical issues I'd stay on
the older version of ECF that shipped with 3.4.
I think these are worthy of inclusion in ECF 2.0.1/3.4.1, along with
this one: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=249990
RE: the issues experienced around gzip support (258680)...I have
verified that this problem was with the gzip contribution to the
httpclient provider (not the URLConnection-based provider). And I've
retested the gzip support in the URLConnection-based provider today with
The integration of those fixes caused some churn. Do you think it
would cause churn/unstability again given that we know the issues
now? Would users be affected in some adverse way? (not pushing for
the fix, just curoious)
I don't think inclusion of gzip support is likely to cause any problems.
As for the HTTP client stuff, well, just seeing it mentioned in the
context of 3.4.2 made me a little dizzy and I had to lie down for a
Jeez, I didn't think PMC disease was that bad :).
RE: the maintenance build...Pascal (and Kim I guess): Assuming we're
going to use something newer than last June, process wise how/when are
we going to get the ECF 6 for 3.4.2 into M-build? We have been doing
coordination for the I-build via this bug
but if we're going to do it for the M-build then lets create a new bug
with appropriate people (myself and Ted Kubaska for ECF).
