RE: AW: [cdt-dev] Possible additions to Wiki
I'll reiterate my point. The Eclipse Foundation has issues with advertising
on their web site. That's why I'd prefer that, if we do list commercial
plug-ins, that we do it by linking in entries at plug-in central which is
the officially sanctioned place to do that.
