Subject recap of derby lunch
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2007 22:10:31 GMT
Yesterday, a number of derby-dev folks had lunch in San Francisco: David 
van Couvering, Lars Heill, Rick Hillegas, Myrna van Lunteren, Kathey 
Marsden, Mike Matrigali, and Bryan Pendleton. Here are the highlights of 
the Derby-related part of our conversation:

Big news: IBM won't be localizing Derby error messages, now that 
Cloudscape is no longer available as a standalone product. So the 
community needs help localizing future releases (including 10.3).

Release cadence: Kathey thought that she might be willing to 
release-manage a maintenance release but she didn't want to tackle 
10.3.2 because it would be so close to the announced schedule for 10.4.

Bug-fix cadence: David shared the Netbeans model for maintaining an even 
quality level during development: They alternate 4 weeks of feature work 
with 1 week of bug fixing.

It was great seeing everybody!
