Gazelle Schedule

  • A reminder to Steve Moore that Steve and Eric need to provide a published roadmap of the Gazelle project with current status and major milestones identified.

Product Registry

  • Jean-Renan has made progress on the Product Registry and will have a draft for review by Lynn Felhofer late this week. Eric offers others on T/T the ability to review if there is interest.


  • We have had several phone calls with just the Cypress-Tools group and a first phone call last week with both the Gazelle developers and Cypress-tools. The main topic of the shared phone call was collaboration on the Gazelle test engine and the results files. INRIA is working on a prototype of the Gazelle test engine. Mitre is doing some background work based on the conference call. We will get together again in three weeks to synchronize efforts.

Contributor Agreements

  • David Monteau provided contributor agreements for individuals, corporations and entities (non for profit groups). Group discussed the changes in the agreement supplied by David
    • Include a head note that this is based on the Apache 2.0 contributor agreements and show the modifications with strike through and underscores.
    • Change 1: Editorial
    • Change 2: Editorial
    • Change 3: Change Work for the term Project
    • Change 4:
    • Change 5: Keep the modified Monteau clause so that we do not get 3rd party contributions. Eric and Steve may decide on a per case basis to accept them. Normally, we will just reference 3rd party software.
  • Steve will take the original Apache agreements, make new documents that show changes (strike through, underscore), pass those documents through the WU attorneys and redistribute to Testing/Tools before Monday, 12-May.
