|[eclipse.org-membership-at-large] Top-Level Modeling Project Declaration|
Eclipse has several projects that deal with modeling, in one form or another. Currently, these projects are spread across the Tools and Technology top-level projects. It is proposed that they be brought together under a new top-level Eclipse Modeling Project. The goal of this reorganization would be to foster communication and interoperability among the projects, and to better control the growing list of Eclipse projects by means of a logical organizational structure.
The Eclipse Modeling Project will focus on the evolution and promotion of model-based development technologies within the Eclipse community. It will unify and refine existing Eclipse projects falling into this classification, and augment them with those needed to bring holistic model-based development capabilities to the Eclipse community. It will be the task of the newly formed Project Management Committee (PMC) of this proposed top-level project to solicit contributors in order to meet this goal.
