Re: [equinox-dev] Alternate Extension Point namespace

There is an enhancement request for this: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=112856 . Feel free to add your information there - having another use case certainly helps raise interest.

[equinox-dev] Alternate Extension Point namespace

For eRCP we would like to have a smaller org.eclipse.ui plugin that has fewer graphics and only a subset of extension points. However, producing a plugin with the same symbolic name but different content does not seem like a good practice since the two plugins could potentially be confused. The problem is that Extension Points are known by their "plugin symbolic name" + "extension name". Thus, Extensions Points can not be provided by another plugin and still be found.

Tom Watson mentioned that there had been some discussion of loosening this restriction. Is there anything currently in the works that would resolve this problem or would you entertain adding a "namespace=" tag to allow changing the default namespace?
