Thank you Jonah for inviting me, and thank you all for the interest in the GME plug-ins and the xPack tools.

For the record, here are some more detailed answers to your questions:

The proposal for the new Eclipse project is called "Eclipse Embedded C/C++ Development Tools".

The 'god father' of this project is Frédéric Desbiens, the Eclipse IoT and Edge Computing program manager, who called me and convinced me to contribute the project to the Foundation.

The proposal is currently under review by the EMO team (The Eclipse Management Organization); the contact person there is Wayne, and he mentioned about approval being expected in one week or so.

I'll let you know when the proposal becomes public, and I'm looking forward for your suggestions.


As for the xPack tools (, I invite William and all other interested, to contact me personally, or even better to join the Tapatalk forums ( so that we can further discuss the design in a public environment.

For an example how the xPack build tools are intended to work, here is a functional project (although a bit old and partly outdated) that generates and builds RISC-V projects:

If you take a close look at the README, you'll notice that in the generated projects the dependencies are automatically satisfied (via `xpm install`), both to source packages (libraries) and to binary packages (like toolchain).

Finally the build is started with `xpm run build`.

Interestingly enough, the template project itself has a test configuration, which generates a sequence of projects with different options, and builds them.

An example of such a run on Travis is:

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.
