Hi,

Why does Eclipse collect our plugin's Views under the Other category
under Window | Show Views?

Because your views are not in the current perspectives view shortcuts.
If you own the perspective call IPageLayout.addShowViewShortcut(), else
contribute thru the extension point org.eclipse.ui.perspectiveExtensions

I'll look more into those things, thanks Prakash.

It turns out that I had not added a Category under Extension Element
Details for my org.eclipse.ui.views extension. Once I did this and
assigned my views to that category, they are now showing where I'd expect
in the Show View dialog.
