|Re: [sequoyah-dev] Re: [mobile-iwg] Pulsar SDK discovery work for Helios|
Ronnie, Eric,My biggest concern in this is the fact that the code would have to pass the Eclipse Foundation Contribution process, which includes the IP review and code scanning.I recommend to contact Sharon and see if there is any chance this can get reviewed as a contribution so late in the game.While i agree that it would be very nice to have the Mylin integration for Helios, i am very concerned that this may introduce a huge risk of not hitting the milestone at all.As an alternative, I would suggest to participate in the Helios release with a minimum risk (aka plain P2 update) code, and then add the Mylin code at the first Maintainance Release.One concern i have for this is also the change of the SDK provider meta-data.Marcel, can you please explain next week at the meeting how your proposed code impacts the P2 Meta Data of the SDK providers?I hope those changes are minimal (or none at all), which would be another reason for not rushing the Mylin code into the Helios release.-ChristianOn Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 10:30 AM, <Ronnie.King@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:
Yes, I will be at the meeting on Wed. I agree that we should plan on getting an agreement on what exactly we believe can be accomplished in the time that we have remaining for Helios and hopefully get commitments from interested parties as to what areas we can expect support on. This is very similar to what happened with Galileo last year, we had to limit what was done due to time, but we were able to pull in the targets with support from everyone who participated in the project.
And yes, I fully understand the additional areas that need to be factored in, documentation, SDK vendor coordination, testing, IP review, etc, which is exactly why we need to make sure that there is a strong push to do everything out in the open so we can solicit help where needed.
On the feature risk, I can certainly appreciate the concern there but I do think that we should make a concerted effort to align with the platform changes that will be supported in Helios, meaning the discovery UI updates. From my understanding the integration of these api’s to P2 are complete, which means we should be able to align the SDK view with the new model. This will of course also require changes to the metadata for including icons, data, etc, but this should be capable of completing in the timeframe if we get commitments from the others on the project.
