      • QE
        • Thoughts/plans for testing alpha2
          • Need to touch base with Prabhat and discuss what can be done for 1-1.5 weeks
    • Open Topics
        • Nick (apply, actionListener)
          • a4j:apply has been moved to "Future" versions - need to work more on requirements
          • a4j:actionListener has been implemented, but CDK cannot register it in a4j.taglib.xml, so reassigned to Alex to fix this in CDK
      • Release artifact structure
        • http://community.jboss.org/message/543453#543453
          • Comments reviewed
        • Review/finalize
          • Separate distribution module for CDK discussed
            • Documentation, examples, etc.
            • Will this include binaries?:
              • lib would make sense to use CDK as APT module for any javac build ( Eclipse lets to define such tool )
                • If time permit - to revisit next week
          • User should be able to rebuild core, commons & ui from distribution archive (with no need for release distribution rebuild)
            • IDE import instructions are necessary
      • Alex K - proposed aggregator/bom/parent relationship change
        • Want to discuss and finalize
          • Initial variant will be used: the aggregator does two things - manages modules, and assembly
          • Discussed removal of aggregators inheritance from richfaces-parent - decided to leave this untouched
      • Migration from ui-sandbox --> /ui/<module>
        • Blockers, plans, tasks
          • Development will be stopped and code moved to ui without formal review this time
          • For M1 when we get the process, QA team or dev. team will do formal review
          • Nick will do the move
            • Need to clarify on this additionally - taken offline
      • Release process, and plugin investigation
        • Alex S & I have done some of this
          • Alex & Jay are on the right track and will update
        • Need to finalize this week
          • richfaces-parent and richfaces-checkstyle will be released
        • Discussed richfaces-cdk-* prefix for CDK modules
          • Not necessary, short names are better
        • CDK will be updated to use richfaces-parent as its parent today
