Re: [ide-dev] Eclipse Languages Symposium/IDE Project?

I meant JDT is tied closely to the Eclipse SDK which is managed by the Eclipse PMC. At any rate, Tools is the likely top level project for all this but we'd need to create a new front-line project. And maybe LTK becomes a component of that.

But then that also brings up the point that the Platform has been the home of these types of things in the past. I just think it gets lost there with all the UI framework and RCP type stuff. IMHO. Interested in opinions on that (and be constructive ;).

JDT in Tools has been talked about for a long time, but it's also tied closely to the Eclipse IDE, so it's never happened. Also Tools is too big and the mandate isn't as clear as I thought it was. I'd rather leave that as secondary.

And, yeah, LTK is a component. Not sure it's big enough to be a project on it's own.

So, I wonder if we should be considering forming an Eclipse Project around all this. And silly enough, calling it the Eclipse IDE project so we can keep using this mailing list and the web site (which is Coming Soon, BTW). We could cover this cross-language framework, an Eclipse IDE installer that Mike M was thinking of, and anything else IDE related that no one else is doing. Plus form a central gathering post for all the related projects (kinda like CDT is with PTP, TM, and LinuxTools). Or is this too much?
IMO, LTK is the right place. But it seems currently to be a Platform Component. It would make sense to move it as a project as part of the "Tools" container (it would also make sense to do the same for JDT by the way).
