Sorry for the crosss-post, but this might be answered by either the UA,
JDT, or PDE folks (or all of them).

I've noticed that JDT, Platform, and PDE all include cheatsheets. What
is curious to me is that they are included in the base plugins
(org.eclipse.jdt, org.eclipse.platform, org.eclipse.pde); it seems that
cheatsheets really are more appropriate for the ui or doc plugins. Is
there a particular reason for including them in the base plugins?

Also, are there any thoughts about the idea of putting all our
cheatsheets into a fragment so they are self-contained and together?

TIA,
Eric

I'm not sure why it was done this way, there is no reason not to include
cheatsheets in a doc plugin or create a separate plugin for them. I
don't think that a fragment would be the right solution, fragments seem
to be only used for localization.
