In evaluating Eclipse for internal use at Cisco Systems
we have observed that:

Java Support is excellent.

C/C++ Support is coming along nicely.

Dynamically Typed Languages (Python,Perl,Tcl,Ruby,PHP)
support is spotty.

We would like to see that change.

I would like to propose that an Eclipse Dynamically Typed
Language project be formed under the Eclipse Technology
project for acheiving the following purposes:

1) Improving the state of support for developing
in Dynamically Typed Languages (like Python,
Perl, Tcl, Ruby, PHP, etc) in Eclipse.
2) Working out a framework for developing Eclipse
Plugins in Dynamically Typed Languages that
can be hosted on the JVM (like Jython, Jacl,
and JRuby).

In conjunction with this I would like to seek parties
interested in forming an Eclipse Dynamic Consortium to
jointly fund full time development staff to support this project.

Thoughts?
