Re: [wtp-dev] Proposal for Plans on the WTP Web Site


Tim,

When we move to Phoenix we'll be using PHP so we can run transforms dynamically, e.g. to roll up component milestone plans. Therefore there should be no requirement to rebuild the pages. However, I'd still like everyone to run a build script to performance validation at least. Otherwise we could get errors when the pages are served.

I'll let Lawrence respond to your suggestion about how to organize the community section.

Re: [wtp-dev] Proposal for Plans on the WTP Web Site






Hi Arthur,


Can't we just automate the script to run every 15 minutes if there are changes? That would allow people to check out just what they want, and it wouldn't require people to refresh or figure out which files changed and have to be checked in.


Each Eclipse team has a page where they post developer resources - sample plugins, tips, plugin information, etc. The community page doesn't have sections for each team. Are we leaving this type of file in the current structure and just moving the milestone and test plans out (and if so, do we still have to run build.xml here?), or are we removing those files (and if so, where do they go?).


Thanks,

Gorkem,


Lawrence and I thought there would be no need for obsolete tutorials. However, if you think there is a need, then I suggest we create an archive in the community section of the Web site. The idea is that tutorials are really for end users so we want them in the community section, not the development section.

Arthur,
Are you planning an area for old versions of the tutorials(esp. for
public versions), for example when we finally released 1.0, for a
strange reason some of the users may still be using the 0.7 and need
those tutorials
Thanks,
Gorkem Ercan
