Re: [eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - August Oct 15, 2003

Discussion Item:
- Wider use of Equinox

Equinox Status:
- Summary: Equinox is good enough for wider use (see discussion item)
- good progress on several fronts with most M4 items complete
- multi-version support is the notable exception but that is expect this week
- lost a bit on startup performance but expect to have that and more back this week.
- also good progress on running existing applications (e.g., WSAD) on top of Equinox.  Most of the trouble is us learning how to run the other apps.
- Progress on OSGi classloading RFCs expected this week.  This covers fragments, modules, and a host of other issues.
