Re: [modeling-pmc] M2M name reallocation/change

In the interests of closure, the PMC agrees to give up the m2m landing page to make room for an important new group at Eclipse.  We request there be some "footnote" with a link to the replacement page, though I'm not sure who's going to create that replacement.  Our website is a total mess...

Hi all,

In case this has not been discussed already, I would suggest keeping a
link from the new M2M page to MMT. This could be done in a similar way
to Wikipedia disambiguation notices: a small sentence at the top of
the page stating something like: "For Model-to-Model Transformations,
please see MMT.". The name change could be mentioned on either the
M2M, MMT or both pages (e.g., on MMT page: "This project was
previously known as M2M.").



Best regards,

Frédéric
