Release Meeting Minutes/2008-04-28
Minutes of weekly release meeting for 2008-04-28:
Is this meeting useful?
Current attendees: Sun, Secure Endpoints, MIT developers
More concrete agenda?
How do people find out about the meeting?
Need to limit audience to people writing code for the next release.
Release planning for krb5-1.7:
Sponsors not enthusiastic about pre-consortium 1.7 roadmap
Sponsors have expressed immediate interest in:
- code quality (static analysis, audits, FIPS compliance, etc)
- Incremental propogation
Not sure about:
- GSSAPI mech-glue
- Kerberos Identity Management (KIM) API
Static Analysis Tools:
Tools producing much more output than expected. 10% of output is too large a sample. Need more time.
Compare tool output to that of other open source implementations.
Need to overhaul code to improve code quality. Kerberos 2.0?
Remove code duplication. Modularize.
Should be done as a series of refactoring projects, not starting from scratch.
Overhaul should not completely block work on requested features.
