I agree that we need to have a milestone.

If there are no objections again, I'd like to propose that we will target:

Having several apps successfully and stably running on Harmony is a good aim
for the release. I can focus on enabling and running regularly the apps that
make sense as we decide here.

2) running 2-3 open source server-side software

What about JBoss and BEA WebLogic?

3) running 2-3 open source developers tools

The first thing that spreads to my mind is Eclipse – IMHO it's very popular
developer's soft. We already have Eclipse hello world application testing
scenario running under CC. And we have a patch that integrates Eclipse unit
tests to build-and-test infra.

4) setting up necessary testing infrastructure and having near 100%

I think it's OK to try commercial apps – having some commercial apps enabled
is a good indicator for Harmony. I think we should pick up some apps, try to
run them and see if everything goes smooth. Is there a good candidate?
