That sounds fine to me, except I'm not sure what you mean by
"downloads".Â The EEP packages p2 repos are currently in
probably that one should be
but the release train repos generally reference the corresponding EPP
repo, so mostly the public doesn't see the EPP URL (though it's used the
Oomph's Product Catalog). Â Also http:/download.eclipse.org redirects to
https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ which already points at the latest
release's EPP downloads via some magic.ÂÂ So probably we should/need
only worry about the p2 repo URLs and not about download site URLs; they
use magical redirection via the eclipse.org host which is also what
provides the public facing URLs for accessing downloads.
I fear we are so quagmired by naming that technically important
considerations such as which URLs are composites and which simple repos
are composed by them are lost as secondary details.Â Yet these are the
fundamental deliverables as well as the vehicle by which they are
delivered to the public.
Thanks so much MÃlanie for helping lead this herd of cats!

The Planning Council decided to use SimRel for the time being.
But isn't that what people don't like and want to replace? Or is
This was decided during our last call that as today the "Legacy"
SimRel would keep the name SimRel and we will work on the initiative
proposed by Wayne to include other communities and so maybe create in
the future lots of different dedicated SimRels. At that point we will
re-discuss the name, but for the next 2018 releases we will use
Eclipse SimRel YYYY-MM for communication purposes.
So according to the previous thread and calls, I propose for :
* splashcreen :
* repo :
* latest repo :
* download :
* latest download :
* wiki :
Please council members do you agree with those URLs?
