Subject [RTC] Clarification please from the PMC
Date Thu, 29 Jun 2006 08:55:03 GMT
There is a lot of work going on to migrate from Maven 1 to Maven 2 in our build.  A question
came up 
as to whether or not we needed [RTC] for that activity.  Please read an excerpt from David's
on the topic...

It would seem to me that the process for RTC would be to send an RTC about the Maven 1 ->
conversion with some preliminary ideas.   This type of activity is clearly incremental and
disruptive in nature potentially so here is how it would work.

[RTC] M1 - M2 converstion e-mail sent to dev
Developers review the "plan" (as not all changes are known) and they reach consensus about
significant change.  They get they're +1s from the group and begin their work.

They continue their work posting status e-mails to the group but are not required to get 3
+1s on 
every change but only changes where it would warrant some input (like changing directory layouts,

etc.)   Even these I see as informative and normal communication and not an [RTC] thread.

I believe the goal of RTC is to improve communication which in many instances it has.  In
the spirit 
of RTC we could complete the Maven 1 -> 2 conversion without large numbers of RTCs required.

I think this is inline but would like your clarification.

Recently I think Jeff requested an RTC to update the committers page which I think falls outside
the RTC requirement so based on these two examples I believe there is still come confusion.
