Re: [examples-dev] Move to Eclipse Labs?

I'm not opposed to this but do think there is some value in being at eclipse.org proper.  Many people like to get the examples and build on them. Being at Eclipse means that the examples that people grab and use have a sounder IP footing.  Certainly as a producer I'd be happy to have fewer IP entanglements but the examples are there for consumers so it ought to be their viewpoint that drives things.
