[07:04] David Honey (IBM): David volunteered as scribe

[07:04] Nick Crossley (IBM): Minutes of previous meeting at

[07:05] David Honey (IBM): Meeting minutes approved

[07:05] Nick Crossley (IBM): Channge Management topics:

[07:07] Jim Amsden (IBM):

[07:10] Nick Crossley (IBM):

[07:17] David Honey (IBM): State predicates from 2.0 are still required. Lifecycles can be customized and the state predicates are an abstraction of the status and/or other properties.

[07:18] David Honey (IBM): oslc_cm:status has to be left as a string value for compatibility, but should be deprecated in 3.0.

[07:19] David Honey (IBM): oslc_cm:state would be treated as an enumeration value (URI of an enumeration member).

[07:20] David Honey (IBM): Martin: Needs to support extensible change management lifecycle.

[07:21] David Honey (IBM): Spec does not currently define valid transitions between oslc_cm:state or oslc_cm:status values.

[07:22] David Honey (IBM): Client cannot discover valid states other than trying to POST a change.

[07:23] David Honey (IBM): State transitions were to be covered in the OSLC Actions spec, but that work on that spec has been put on hold.

[07:25] Jim Amsden (IBM): Proposal: keep and deprecate CM 2.0 oslc_cm:status (String), add oslc_cm:state (oslc_cm:State enumeration) and keep CM 2.0 "State Predicates"

[07:25] David Honey (IBM): +1

[07:25] Nick Crossley (IBM): +1

[07:25] Jim Amsden (IBM): +1

[07:25] Peter Hack (IBM): +1

[07:26] Bill Chown (Mentor Graphics)2: +1

[07:26] Martin Sarabura (PTC): +1

[07:27] Jim Amsden (IBM):

[07:27] Brian Steele (Persistent): +1

[07:27] David Honey (IBM): Vote passed.

[07:39] David Honey (IBM): Martin: Desirable for a change request to reference a change set that identifies the state of the resources before a fix was made, and the state of the resources after a fix is made.

[07:41] Jim Amsden (IBM):

[07:41] David Honey (IBM): Martin will discuss with colleagues and if necessary raise issue(s).

[07:44] Jim Amsden (IBM):

[07:44] David Honey (IBM): Jim: Need to move class-specific properties to the change request class to keep compatibility with 2.0.

[07:44] David Honey (IBM): Nick: agreed

[07:45] Nick Crossley (IBM): Nick to reorder lines above

[07:49] David Honey (IBM): oslc:usage - not a pattern that seems to be used. But appears to be in the 2.0 spec.

[07:49] Jim Amsden (IBM):

[07:51] David Honey (IBM): Nick: Usage was so that a service could indicate it was a service for planitems versus a service for defects.

[07:51] David Honey (IBM): Not a property on a change request.

[07:52] David Honey (IBM): The usage of oslc:usage with string values for change request types still applies in 3.0 - required for compatibility with 2.0.

[07:53] David Honey (IBM): Martin: new change request type: Change notice

[07:54] David Honey (IBM): Nick: Why not create a new subclass of change request?

[07:56] David Honey (IBM): Spec needs to state that additional subclasses may be created/defined.

[07:59] David Honey (IBM): Martin: action item to raise issues on his review topics

[07:59] David Honey (IBM): Will revisit in next meeting.

[08:00] David Honey (IBM): Reminder: Changes in the config management spec to be reviewed marked in red. Needs review for next meeting.

[08:00] Nick Crossley (IBM): Meeting adjourned
