As discussed on last week's call there
is a request for a 1.5.4 service release from IBM adopters. I've provided
a proposal below, for discussion at the next PMC call.
Scope WTP 1.5.4 is a service release for critical
defects, regressions, and adopter issues only. There should be no translation
or UI changes, nor should it affect any API reported through the adopter
Schedule To avoid conflicts with WTP 2.0 dates,
since Eclipse service releases are usually quarterly, and to make it easy
to remember :), 5/4 is the proposed release date for 1.5.4.
Bug Approval All bugs for 1.5.4 must be approved
by the PMC following the regular PMC approval process . We will use
the same webpage and offline approval  as previous releases like 1.5.3.
Builds and Process 1.5.4 will be built using the regular
continuous builds and 1.5 maintenance stream in CVS. We will have weekly
checkpoints on the build call for fixes targetted to 1.5.4, but will use
the following biweekly schedule for declaring I-builds:
3/22 - I-build released
4/5 - I-build released
4/19 - RC1 released. PMC will only approve
stop-ship bugs during the last two weeks
5/4 - 1.5.4 declared
