I'd like to add a notion of some shutdown
criteria for WTP 2.0 in Europa so we can rest at ease we are delivering
a quality deliverable. This information could be added to the ramp
down plan at http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/WTP_2.0_Ramp_down_Plan_for_Europa
My initial items are things like:
Europa WTP Exit Criteria
No resolved, unverified blocker/critical
No failing JUnits.
No compile errors.
No undocumented access rule violations.
No uninvestigated access rule warnings.
No undocumented adopter breakages.
This list is just to start a PMC brainstorming
session. I'm sure a more cohesive and obtainable list could be created.
I feel this would go a long ways in changing committers mindsets
with respect to how serious some of these items are in terms of quality.
