Here's the summary of the activity on cosmo-dev for the week of  
September 2, 2007.

New threads:
-------

Roberto Polli checked on the status of his CalDAV4J patches.
+ Bobby Rullo replied that they looked fine, and integrated them.

Ted Leung proposed a plan for the Cosmo 0.7.1 (and really 0.7.x)  
release.  After a long discussion, the overall outline looks like this:
* Cosmo 0.7.x will release every Tuesday (with the goal of upgrading  
the Hub later that day)
* QA needs 3 days to validate a release
* Changes for a given week  are done by thursday, bugs not done by  
thursday are punted to 0.7.x+1
* Branching: 0.7.x off of 0.7, trunk = 0.8, 0.7.x and 0.7.x+1 to be  
active so that work continues on 0.7.x+1 while 0.7.x is being QA'ed.   
Fixes to be manually committed to appropriate branches as they are made.
* Also there were some issues with windmill that need addressing so  
that windmill can run on tinderbox.  Bugs have been logged against  
Windmill

Roberto Polli wanted a way to get better error messages in CalDAV4J
+ Bobby Rullo pointed out that the exception handling code wraps the  
original exception, which contains the desired information.

Roberto Polli noted that CalDAV4J is out of spec on search by UID
+ Bobby Rullo said that CalDAV4J is  several revs behind the RFC, and  
welcomed patches.

Mike Taylor (Bear) posted a link to an article about MacRoman vs  
UTF-8 on Mac OS X.  This was related to bug 10304.

Ted Leung canceled the Cosmo release meeting for the 0.7.x series,  
since it seemed too slow moving to wait for a weekly meeting when a  
release was a week long.   Release issues were to be managed in the  
mailing list.

Ted Leung commented on a checkin of the Cosmo pom.xml file whose sole  
purpose was to set the release to SNAPSHOT, and which was an oops, I  
didn't change it in all the places.  He proposed investing some brain  
power in making problems like this go away.

Katie Parlante posted some thoughts on how to prioritize during  
0.7.x.    The short of it is that PPD/QA/Eng should feel free to move  
bugs into 0.7.current without needing the bug council, since the bug  
council is frequently in agreement on the disposition of bugs.   When  
this happens the person moving the bug should send mail to cosmo-dev  
to make sure that everyone sees this.   If anyone has a concern about  
a bug that has been moved in, it can be revisited on the list.    
There will still be a weekly IRC sweep of new bugs.

Brian Moselely landed the contents of the cosmo-0.8 (dev) branch onto  
the trunk.

Ted Leung moved all unfixed bugs from Cosmo 0.7.1 to Cosmo 0.7.2
<http://lists.osafoundation.org/pipermail/cosmo-dev/2007-September/ 
004676.html>

Roberto Pollio asked about switching CalDAV4J to HTTPClient 3
+ The issue is that CalDAV4J relies on Slide which relies on  
HTTPClient 2
+ Roberto was going to investigate use of HTTPClient 3 by Bedework

Ted Leung posted a pointer to a blog post about Subversion 1.5's  
merge tracking features.

searches.

Continuing Conversations:
-------

Ted Leung thought that Katie Parlante's list of bugs was reasonable,  
and also solicited bug nominations for Cosmo 0.7.1 from others.
