RE: [pdt-dev] official release of maintenance for PDT 2.0

Thanks Nick!

Since the last 4 integration builds of PDT 2.0.1 are identical, i.e.
nothing has been changed lately I think that we can say that people were
playing with it enough.

+1 for promotion, 
If there are no errors on this build we will promote it on April 30,
around 17:00 (GMT+2)

That's not really the way the Eclipse Development Process works: 
maintenance != new features. That said, "urgently needed" can be 
interpreted as "this missing functionality makes the release unusable" 
and therefore justifies the change. But IANAL, TINLA, and my 
interpretation of the EDP should not be considered a recommendation. :)

FWIW, I've been using Eclipse 3.5 for months now, and it's pretty 
stable. The new p2 stuff is worth looking at too.

In lighter news, I have a candidate PDT 2.0.1 build available for the 
dev team to review and publish if satisfied. I fixed the problem w/ jar 
signing - it was still set to use Alon's credentials so it was unable to

ssh the Master.zip to build.eclipse.

to use in a production environment.
