[Dev] Re: Label field / domain model issues

Ted has a list of stamping related bugs currently scheduled for 0.7alpha3:

https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2507 (unstamping 
https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3735 (stamping event 
as task resets alarm to none)
https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2117 (third party 
parcels can foul up stamping)

Given that we are expecting to use stamping in 0.7alpha2, I'm suggesting 
that we go ahead and work on stamping now, possibly prioritizing some of 
the other domain model work later.

I'm asking you if you need the labeling work done in 0.7alpha2. If we 
can put this off until 0.7alpha3, it gives us more flexibility with the 
schedule. Just trying to make dependencies clear.

Agreed that this is doable. I also want to make sure that Ted has time 
on his schedule if there is any supporting domain model work that needs 
to be done.

Yup, I understand that you are concerned about this and want to tackle 
it. The next step is to talk about this at the design session tomorrow.

In addition to the stamping bugs listed above, we've been tossing around 
the idea of implementing stamping as annotations. This has implications 
for both the sharing format and for the "dump and reload" (née schema 
evolution) implementation.

I'm proposing that we take on the stamping related work now, and looking 
to push some other work out to make room.
