Re: [equinox-dev] Equinox->Bundles component is getting crowded

It would probably be best if each separately downloadable item had its own 
component against which people could file bugs.

For the security stuff I was referring to the security-specific bundles 
like login (JAAS integration etc.)

You are right there is a lot of cross-cutting concerns with the other 
security related work that will not really fit into any one component.

Re: [equinox-dev] Equinox->Bundles component is getting crowded






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?
