TPTP is effectively a PMC with one member containing a single active
project with a single committer. There doesn't seem to be any prospect
of this changing any time soon.
Is it time to consider moving TPTP Platform to Tools and archive the rest?
TPTP Platform is basically useless without any of the consuming projects
(Profiling, Testing and the already archived Monitoring), of which
testing is the one and only I would like to support and keep around in
Regarding the point of moving projects around in the eclipse project space:
While being a single person top-level project may sound like fun it
really is not and has never been intended, as the situation has been
inherited as it is. I can understand that this may seem odd to others
and is probably not in line of what one would expect from a Eclipse top
Personally I really don't care where in the hierarchy this project ends
up, the only thing I care about is the additional effort generated by
such a move.
For the near future, the amount of time I am able to invest in this
project is limited. From my personal point of view, any effort going
into this move will be missing elsewhere without being of any use in
regard to the project itself.
While we are at it, same goes for the effort of changing the currently
working build environment to support Git which is not the trivial move
it may seem.
I can see no benefit for this very project, though I am aware of and
appreciate the community related benefits of the Git move and the need
for a general policy.
With CVS being retired in favour of Git, it may make sense to combine
these efforts. Thoughts?
There is not noticeable difference between moving one or all projects to
Git as TPTP is basically one monolithic block of tightly interacting
