Re: [equinox-dev] Equinox Subprojects

rt.equinox.security should have been roled up into rt.equinox.bundles.  At least we moved all the security code into the rt.equinox.bundles repository and have one commit group for that repository.  So technically it is a candidate for termination, but the code did not go away.

Personally I would be fine with combining rt.equinox.bundles and rt.equinox.framework into one project under rt.equinox and leaving rt.equinox.p2 as the sole subproject.  This means all rt.equinox.bundles committers would gain commit rights to the rt.equinox.framework repo and vise-versa.  I'm not sure what to do about rt.equinox.website project.  If you have an easy way to also combine it into rt.equinox then that is fine.  But we must allow rt.equinox.p2 committers to still have access to the web site repository.

Others have opinions?

I just noticed that some of the Equinox subprojects do not have any source repositories listed [1]. In fact, most of them have no metadata specified at all.

Further, upon inspection, it appears that the rt.equinox.security project has no resources associated with it (no Git repository, no downloads that I can detect, no website). Is this project still viable, or is it a candidate for termination?

The rt.equinox.website project is a hold over from the bad-old-days. Is that project still required? Can we kill it and assign the website repository to rt.equinox?

Is it still valuable to have Equinox subprojects at all? Based on the use of the projects, it seems that the only purpose is to keep the committer lists distinct. Is this still necessary? AFAICT, only rt.equinox.p2 seems to be operating as a separate project. Does it make sense to consider rolling the rest of the projects up into the parent?

Thanks,

Wayne
