Some of these extensions should just become part of the PDT
project-proper. A lot of generally-useful functionality has been
listed that feels like it really should just be part of the project.
I don't think that we need additional projects in this space, but I
could be convinced.|
Can PDT extensions just be included in the Eclipse Marketplace? It's
dirt easy to install stuff from the Marketplace, and setting up an
entry there isn't very much work.

Thanks for your help, Mike.
The first goal is to identify and plan the work that has to be
done. We are already confirm that contributions to pdt are done
via patches/bugzilla and pdt will be represented in pdt-extensions
group (everyone is welcome to join, at least Jacek will watch us
so that the kids are not doing strange things). So I guess there
is currently no further help needed.
On the other hand there are numerous topics that will be covered
by the community or extension plugins. At least the
framework-support may be realized with additional plugins and
there are many php frameworks around the world :)
1) The way pdt-extensions should be distributed. We tend to
provide a tycho/p2 repository where we mirror the official
pdt-extensions. So that pdt users can install extensions very
easy. Is there a way eclipse foundation can support this?
Currently all plugins are non-eclipse projects. Robert, what do
2) The question whether some plugins should become an eclipse
project. This should be discussed with those that want to share
their work or those owning the plugins.
So for me personally: I provide php-maven. Currently including
some phpunit support but this should be removed in favor of Sevas
solution? The maven parts itself: there may be some interest in
eclipse foundation I guess. Because eclipse itself and jdt get
more deeper maven support, this could be migrated to eclipse. I
personally do not mind if this is a lonesome eclipse plugin or an
official eclipse project being part of pdt-extensions. However I
have zero experience with project proposals or eclipse foundation
