[amalgam-dev] Re: oAW in Amalgam

Markus,

Typically components share the newsgroup of the containing and users are
asked prefix subjects headings,  for example with [oAW].  After alll, you
have things like Xtext, XPand, and MWE spead across multiple projects and
there are newsgroups for those projects already too.   So I expect you'd
use

   news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.modeling.amalgam

There is already a real CVS component as well:

It's not clear what you mean by glue code.  I imagine most if not all the
code is associated directly with Xpand, Xtend, Xtext, and MWE.  What else,
specifically, is there that would not logically belong with the former
components?

yes, but we do need real a repository where we can
put the "glue" code as well as a newsgroup for support.
