The Tycho <http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/tycho> project creation review is declared successful!

   /Tycho is a set of Maven plugins and extensions for building Eclipse
   plugins and OSGi bundles with Maven. Eclipse plugins and OSGi
   bundles have their own metadata for expressing dependencies, source
   folder locations, etc. that are normally found in a Maven POM. Tycho
   uses native metadata for Eclipse plugins and OSGi bundles and uses
   the POM to configure and drive the build. Tycho supports bundles,
   fragments, features, update site projects and RCP applications.
   Tycho also knows how to run JUnit test plugins using OSGi runtime
   and there is also support for sharing build results using Maven
   artifact repositories./

Provisioning is already underway, so this project should be up-and-running in no time. Let me extend a big thank you to everybody who participated in the proposal and creation phases of this project; I sense a large and enthusiastic community developing behind this project.

Today also marks the start of the community review period for a Restructuring Review <http://www.eclipse.org/project-slides/MdtOclScopeRestructuring.pdf> of the MDT/OCL <http://www.eclipse.org/projects/dev_process/development_process_2010.php#6_3_8_Restructuring_Review> project. In this case, the review is concerned with adjusting the scope of the project; there will be no code or actual structural changes. The community review period wraps up on August 18th; address any concerns that you have to the communication channel indicated in the review document <http://www.eclipse.org/project-slides/MdtOclScopeRestructuring.pdf>.

Thanks,

Wayne
