Re: [tptp-pmc] TPTP on indigo

Hi Anis,

speaking as the 'some interest from someone', I am currently taking care of the TPTP project as both project lead and currently sole active committer of the project.

As literally all of the previous committers left the project last year, it has not been possible yet to keep up with the release train activities for Indigo, even with the occasional support of some active contributors out here.

Although not yet set in stone, future versions of TPTP will most probably continue to not contain all subprojects of the previous versions (Version 4.7 has already archived the monitoring subproject).

The main focus is currently on the testing subproject, while the profiling project will have to be archived as well, due to a lack of resources and active contributors/committers in this area.

So if you interested in taking care of this part of the project you are more than welcome to join forces here, be it as a contributor or active committer.

I am sure Wayne Beaton as the PMC of this project can provide you with all necessary information on the process side of things to do that.

Torsten Stolpmann,
TPTP Project Lead

P.S.: Thanks David, for your precise summary and jumping in on the discussion

I say "sort-of, nearly" since it was going to be archived, then there was
some interest from someone (sorry, don't remember who) in keeping part of
it alive, and from there, I do believe it stalled. No progress one way or
the other. I suspect if you were interested enough to "revive" some subset
of the project, that others could tell you the right process to follow (I
suspect it would take just a short proposal spelling what you would
propose, who (how many) would do it, etc. But, that's for others to say.

There is no substitute for it that I am aware of, but easily could be ...
there are so many projects at Eclipse its hard to keep track of them all.

There is RAT, http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project.php?id=tools.rat,
which _might_ be related to what you want to do, but that is a stalled
project too, as far as I can tell.
Now, for Memory Analysis, there is the MAT project,
http://www.eclipse.org/mat/, which I think is quite strong, many users,
several releases, etc. but from the little I know, that doesn't sound like
what you are looking for.

I'm sure others with more current knowledge will comment here eventually
(in next week or two).

Good luck,

I am writing to you with regard to the TPTP project. I am wondering why it
is no longer part of eclipse and If there's a substitute for that in
Indigo? Specifically I am interested in tracing using TPTP Probekit.

             Hi Anis,

             You are correct that TPTP is currently not supporting Indigo.
             We had a change of leadership in the TPTP project as indicated
             on the mailing list earlier this year.  As such, the original
             set of committers and PMC members (including myself and Oliver)
             are no longer working on the TPTP project.  For further project
             inquiries, please send a note to the tptp-pmc@xxxxxxxxxxx
             mailing list.  The current TPTP PMC should be able to provide
             you with the up-to-date outlook on their plans.

             As noted in the TPTP web site, the current PMC lead for the
             project is Wayne Beaton and the project lead for the TPTP
             sub-projects is Torsten Stolpmann.
