0810 Short Term Goals

  • Defects to address
  • Features to implement

0810 Release Scheduling

  • Should 0810 have a "formal" release schedule?
  • 0810 Update release schedule (jondecker76)
    • Discuss update scheduling for after 0810 is released, as well as the frequency of the updates.
    • Maybe a planned monthly build (similar to how we do the weekly's now) for bugfixes/feature enhancements wouldn't be a bad idea.

High Level Design Discussions

  • Discuss possibility of running our own new_install script on www.linuxmce.org and assigning our own installation ID's - (jondecker76)
    • Who knows if and/or when plutohome.com will disappear along with the script that is currently used.
    • Since we are our own entity at this point and very active in changing the direction of LMCE, I'd also like to see us start all over with installation ID #1 starting with 0810.
    • This will cleanly separate us from pluto and provide insurance that we can continue to assign new installation ID's in the future (especially important once linking installations is possible).
    • Old pluto installation ID's can be re-assigned for upgrades from 0710 with a post-upgrade script.
    • This change can be made in a matter of an hour.

Procedural Changes

  • Discuss efforts to improve defect tracking methods (jimbodude)
    • Discuss ways to make sure all defects are reported
    • Discuss ways to make sure all reported defects are addressed in a timely manner
    • Consider re-working current work into LinuxMCE/Trac specific policy
  • Discuss effectiveness of future meetings
    • Decide whether to have more
    • Discuss meeting frequency
    • Voice chat? - (Cylon7)
    • Schedule next meeting
