It has become clear that M2M meaning Model-to-Model is largely an
Eclipse usage, whereas the Machine-to-Machine usage is becoming globally
prevalent. It therefore seems prudent to revise the Eclipse usage now
while Modeling M2M usage is limited rather than in perhaps 5 years time
when it may be much harder.
It has already been at least half agreed that the Machine-to-Machine
consortium can use the eclipse.org/m2m URL, but surely much more will be
Most URL usage is non-m2m, since ATL and QVTd now drop the m2m from
their project-specific URLs and plugin ids; QVTo has yet to make this
simplification. So future unqualified M2M usage is largely restricted to
a few administrative pages and vintage academic references. Therefore
handing over the entire eclipse.org/m2m space is not that hard,
particularly if colliding web pages have a redirect.
The Modeling/M2M project name does not have to change, since it is
qualified, but if Machine-to-Machine is to be significant, we may want
it too to do some modelling, so the ongoing Modeling usage may be
I therefore propose that Modeling/M2M be renamed as Modeling/MMT (Model
to Model Tools).
