Note: Details in the transcript


  • One major issue found - RF-7994
  • Portal Bridge related issue also identified
    • workaround in place so not critical
  • Some other more minor issues
  • Decided on 3.3.3 release plan
    • 3.3.3.BETA1, CR1, and GA
      • Pros:
        • RF 4.0 is not ready for full team involvement
        • AS 5.2 admin-console/RF 3/JSF 2.0 support may be possible
        • Any PBR issues that come up may be able to be addressed
      • Cons:
        • Resources no focused/assisting on 4.0
        • Will impact 4.0 release
        • Additional changes for PBR/JSF2 may destabilize 3.3.X
        • Must be QE'd heavily
  • PBR discussion taken offline
