Gerrit News Page
Alice’s summary of the new “preview/apply fix” feature is still pending for the next issue which is due to be published at the end of March.
No other news items were disussed during this meeting. As usual, we invite the community to propose any items that they think would be interesting.
Alice has published an update to the roadmap per the decisions made in the previous meeting.
There is no news about the schedule for a hackathon/summit. Luca has followed up with Matthias about the possibility for SAP to host, but there is no decision yet.
Review of open design documents
Threaded feedback in the change log
This is waiting for Jacek to respond to review comments. David will remind him.
The first part (linked above) seems to be OK, apart from a couple of pending minor comments from Edwin and broken links pointed out by David.
David will remind Jacek to follow up.
CollabNet is OK with the proposed design, and now the only thing remaining is to include the recent discussions from the review into the actual document.
David will take care of that, and begin the development, later. No further action is needed from ESC until the document has been updated.
Alice will follow up with James.
Review of issues on the ESC component
Issue 11772 - future of change Ids
We agreed that the other forms of change identifier should still be supported, and we should therefore cancel the deprecation that was announced with 2.16.
David and Patrick will work on this. First there needs to be a change to revert the deprecation, and then a follow-up change to add more context information about the different identifiers and when/why they are useful.
