Of course I am following ide-dev but I usually ignore these discussions when they deviate so much.

Since I was mentioned many times, let me clear this up. I plan to provide an extension to the generic editor to support editing of target definition files. Of course this would be much nicer than the template Lars mentioned which is pretty basic. The bug is Bug 507947. I tweeted https://twitter.com/smcela/status/801020020549681152 to get a feeling of people's requirements. That is all from my side.

Somehow this was turned into a mailing list topic on the merit of abstraction layers which then veered into why PDE doesn't review patches and all that (see P.S. below). 

I decided to spend my effort on the generic editor approach. Once it is ready I will put it up for scrutiny for you all, if you find the time to look at it... At that point the PDE committers will decide whether it should be merged or not. Until then my effort will not be spent on anything else, including debates on whether this is right philosophically or not.


P.S. Since we are here and without wanting to fuel yet another debate, my experience in patch reviewing in PDE has been excellent. Thanks Lars. I wish I was able to review patches as promptly as you do in PDE (https://git.eclipse.org/r/82257 https://git.eclipse.org/r/82267 and https://git.eclipse.org/r/82151/).
