Creating a new component for p2 definitely
makes sense to me. I don't know much about the security work, but
that may be difficult to partition into its own component because it's
an inherently cross-cutting concern. If there end up being a number of
security-specific bundles, it may make sense.
Generally speaking, I think more components
is a good thing. It's a great way to bring in new committers who may not
be able to make the large commitment needed to contribute across a large
part of Equinox.

[equinox-dev] Equinox->Bundles component
is getting crowded
The Equinox project continues to grow with new components
and new contributes being added. Thanks everyone!!
As new contributions are graduated into Equinox proper we need to place
them under one of the existing components. Currently we have the "Framework"
and "Bundles" components for Equinox proper in bugzilla/cvs.
A large majority of the new contributions will fall into the "Bundles"
component. For example, we have a few work areas in the equinox incubator
which are very active (e.g. p2, security etc). Once this work graduates
it will likely to be placed into the generic "Bundles" component.
This will make an already crowded component even more crowded.
Should we consider creating a more diverse set of components for the work
which is graduated into Equinox? I think the p2 and security work will
deserve their own component when they graduate. Thoughts?
