Fw: Fwd: Integrate more projects into Platform UI?

Sarika Sinha

-1 for debug in Platform UI.

Platform Debug and Platform UI are totally different components and a person having commit rights in debug may not have the required skill set to work with Platform UI. Similarly a person having commit rights in Platform UI may not have the required skill set to work with Platform Debug which needs good knowledge of debug code and IMHO it has to be attained through the traditional path of earning committer rights.
Also, Platform Debug is the base for many Debugging projects in Eclipse such as CDT, JDT so it's important to keep it separate.

Thanks & Regards,
Sarika

Hi,

The Equinox project started integrating more components into one
sub-project. See
https://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/equinox-dev/msg08447.html

We recently integrated eclipse.platform.text into eclipse.platform.ui.
From my perspective this was a big success. The existing text
committers did a lot of work before the merge and also after the merge
this part of the platform seem to be more active than before.

Because of the Equinox restructuring, I looked at the work happing in
our platform sub-projects. Maybe we should consider moving the "not so
active sub-projects" also to platform UI?

Here is a little summary of what I see:

== Releng

Releng is a project where David does almost all the work with some
help of existing platform UI committers:

https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/eclipse.platform.releng/who

== Resources

Resources seems to be mainly maintained by Sergey and other existing
Platform UI committers:

https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/eclipse.platform.resources/who

== Debug

Also Debug seems to not very active.

https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/eclipse.platform.debug/who

== General observation

All three projects see relatively little work at the moment. Debug had
only ~15 commits in the last three months, several of them for bundle
version changes.
http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.debug.git/log/
Similar for resources.

And I think releng would also benefit from more people, e.g., several
minor cleanup patches are currently pending in Gerrit since a while.
Also I think it would be helpful if David could fix releng related
issues directly in sub-projects.

The SWT sub-project seems very active and has its own native
technology so I think I should definitely remain its own project.

== Feedback desired

What do you think? Should be suggest the move to Platform UI for the
following components:

- resources
- debug
- releng

to the PMC?

I think this would increase the committer base for this projects and
simplify our project setup. Also is seems at least for releng and
resources that almost the same people as in Platform UI are working on
these projects anyway. For Debug the committer base is not
overlapping, this might be a reason why we want to keep is separate.

Best regards, Lars
