2. Review Proposed Features of TWiki 4.1

  • Desired outcome: Clarify open question and decide on inclusion/exclusion of features

  • Current status can be seen in WhatIsIn04x01.
  • FindElsewherePluginAsDefaultPlugin - Start shipping FindElsewherePlugin -- WN
    • We will most likely vote this NO. The votes already given is a 3 against 1 for No.
      • Vote: 1 YES. 5 NO.
  • DateFieldPluginAsDefaultPlugin - Start shipping DateFieldPlugin -- WN
    • Consensus reached that it is OK to include function in core. But concern is raised aganst yet another default plugin. Nobody has taken the action to add this to core so we will vote on this one at this release meeting. Kenneth proposes discussing it to: 1. Vote no for the plugin solution. And 2. try and motivate a developer to taking the action.
      • Vote for including the plugin as it is today. 4 NO. 0 Yes.
      • The "adding to core" alternative needs to be defined before we can vote for this. Discussion continues in DateFieldPluginAsDefaultPlugin.
  • NeedSpecForFormValueInitialization - Need to clarify the spec -- TW
    • Decision at release meeting is to let Steffen review the proposed change for implications to TWiki Apps. And if he finds it safe it is accepted.
  • CustomizableNewWikiWordLink - nice enhancement, no brainer
    • Decision: 6 YES, 0 NO. With current layout as default.
  • PreventLinkToOneself, using 2 new CSS classes -- SvenDowideit
    • No decision. Need to know about behavour when topics are included in another.

3. TWiki 4.1 Release Timing

  • Desired outcome: Set tentative date of TWiki 4.1 Release

  • Kenneth builds beta within the next few days. No detailed release notes! Just tagged and built as is.
  • Code freeze about one week later - then only bug fixes allowed
  • RC1 2 weeks after beta

Action Items

  • Peter and Kenneth to provide feedback for Sam on PostDakarTrackingAndDiscussion
