I am already a committer on the Linux Tools project at the foundation, so that is one hurdle less :-)

Good.


Aside from my interest in Tycho/CBI, I am also keen that foundation projects move to the latest versions of their dependencies so that we benefit from any bug/security fixes they may provide. So for example, this bug about moving to the latest version of asm [1] interests me and I would be willing to spend time to keep the project using the latest versions of the Apache httpcomponents [2] (actually these have been the source of a few CVEs recently, so keeping this dependency up to date is important) and whatever else I notice is outdated.

Might want to add these two upgrades as well. I believe Wim is in the process right now of addressing the jmdns one, and if at all possible I would like to include that fix in ECF 3.9.1 later this month/Nov 2014.


Upgrade to JMDNS 3.x https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=326228
Upgrade to zookeeper 3.4.x release: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=378350


Please work out with Markus and Wim an arrangement for making releng contributions wrt Tycho. There are several ways to go here...e.g. gerrit, branch, etc...it's up to the two of them how they would like to work.

Wim and Markus: If a meeting among the four of us (Wim, me, Markus, and Mat) is needed please let me know and I'll arrange for as soon as possible.
