I have seen some discussions around the benefits of this project.
One of the key benefits, to me and other BAs is the ability to link the
various artefacts (artifacts if you're American). This should be as simple
as possible, ideally with a graphical component, and should facilitate the
preparation of impact analysis reports. The pieces that exist within
Eclipse are standalone and cannot be easily linked. The production of an
impact analysis is not feasible using the disconnected pieces.
Just a thought that I hoped would not get lost in the shuffle.
