Minutes of Edinburgh Release Meeting, 18 Jul 2006

TOC and Agenda

Logistics, Participants, IRC log

1. Review Previous Action Items

  • Kenneth to schedule a meeting in doc group.
    • Has happened: TWikiOrgDocWork2006
    • Sven suggested to also eventually remove old topics from twiki.org.
  • ALL: Give Harald more feedback on Codev topic concerning VarXXX topics: OrganizeTWikiVariables
    • Harald requested time to think more about how to implement this in a maintainable way.
  • Crawford: draft release manager role in codev, with responsibilities and criteria for decisions - DONE TWikiReleaseManagerRole
    • Discussed in item 3
  • Arthur: Create an improved download page with better balance between main download and Release complements. May choose to do a test download page with 10 imaginary hotfixes.
    • The hotfix implementation on the download page does the job.
  • Visibility of hotfixes for our releases
    • See above

2. Performance

  • How to find a way to reward people for working on performance, even when they fail - most people that have worked on it don't feel like doing so in a hurry
    • See action items (Profiling)

3. TWiki 4.1 release process & proposed items

Action Items

  • Doc Team: Discuss if we also want to reduce content as proposed by Sven and supported by many in community
  • All: Add to "Wishlist" BenchmarkFramework - requirements and wishes
  • Who? Implement profiling framework for TWiki - discuss at next meeting
  • Meredith: Create TWikiFn branch of TWiki4 with no other changes.
  • Kenneth: Benchmark the above with TWiki4 without TWikiFn.
  • All: Try Configure script in DEVELOP and provide feedback for Crawford.

Comments / Feedback

  • 7. I am with Kenneth completely. The performance on my project has ranged from barely tolerable to abysmal. That's why I put this first. We've got to figure out how to improve the performance a lot. A machine dedicated to this purpose would be very useful.
  • 2. I will put together a scratch branch with nothing but the TWikiFn stuff. I would have done so by now had I not been having serious computer problems.
  • 1. Yes, I probably need help. It's a pretty triv change, however.
  • 4. Not a big issue, but let me think about it some more.

There has been a branch with no changes but the TWikiFns for at least a week now. I'm surprised that no one raised that in the meeting. My previous comments, of course, are copied from the previous week's meeting and are therefore out of date.
