Brian Moseley announced the full set of changes in how Cosmo is  
packaged, including the ability to deploy into an existing Tomcat  
instance.  Alan Lord was able to use these changes to solve the  
issues that he was having.

Randy Letness posted some thoughts on the future of access control in  
Cosmo

Travis Vachon annotated the list of Windmill tests needed for Cosmo  
with questions.

Mike Taylor (Bear) posted about some experiments with the Hudson  
continuous build system.

005488.html>

Travis Vachon started adding semantically meaningful ids to elements  
in the UI, which would help testing.  This started a discussion about  
the best way to do this, other options being jsids. In the end  
semantic ids won out.

Ted Leung outlined the plan for Cosmo 0.11 and 0.12.

Jared Rhine submitted a patch to add more logging to the user  
creation process.  Brian Moseley review the patch and said it was fine.

Ted Leung asked people to provide SWAG's (estimates) for their Cosmo  
0.12 and 1.0 bugs

005511.html>

Jared Rhine provide patches for 3 bugs and targetted those bugs for  
Cosmo 0.11

005519.html>

Travis Vachon pointed an increase in hand editing errors in the Cosmo  
pom.xml files.   Mike Taylor (Bear) acknowledged that automating this  
process would be good.

Continuing Conversations:
-------

Alan Lord continued to work through his issues building Cosmo.  It  
seemed to be a problem with a testcase that only showed up on Linux.   
Brian Moseley supplied Alan with a workaround.
<http://lists.osafoundation.org/pipermail/cosmo-dev/2007-December/ 
005456.html>

There was continued discussion about application of the 0.10.1 update  
to Chandler Hub.  It turns out that Hub was hot patched immediately  
which does not bump the Chandler Server version number, which caused  
confusion about whether the fix was actually applied or not.
<http://lists.osafoundation.org/pipermail/cosmo-dev/2007-December/ 
005451.html>

The thread on release terminology also continued, with Randy Letness  
questioning the difference between "Triple Zero" and "RC".   He felt  
that an RC should be cut later than we currently do, which would mean  
after all bugs are fixed and verified.  One important clarification  
that Mikeal Rogers made was that a release candidate is useful for  
helping people outside of the OSAF staff know when they should test  
in earnest.
