Re: [cdt-dev] [tm-dev] TM Terminal and CDT plans

Thanks Nick for merging the fix and returning the build to green.

Hello TM and CDT folk,

Based on discussions up to this point I think the plan should be:

- Move active parts of terminal code to CDT's git repo - this is everything in namespace, except[0] and[1]
- The namespace will be preserved - i.e. no renaming of plug-ins/features
- The terminal will still be installable without any new dependencies on CDT
- The terminal will be distributed and released with CDT's releases in CDT's p2 repos (under
- The terminal will continue to be contributed to simrel (just in cdt.aggrcon instead of tm.aggrcon)
- The git history of terminal will be preserved/moved to CDT
- The remaining RSE project will then be archived according to the Eclipse Project Handbook process [2] and removed from SimRel.
- All of this done in time for CDT 9.11.0 M2 / SimRel 2020-03 M2 release (aka by 3 Feb 2020)

Can I get some +1s then I can proceed with bugs and process stuff?

[0] Because of archiving RSE. This bundle/feature is not in the simrel today and it is the only bundle causing the circular dep with the rest of RSE.
[1] Because this implementation of serial is already not included in recent releases due to GPL code, See Bug 536800
[2] What happens to RSE (what will be left of Eclipse Target Management project) is somewhat independent of the rest of the list.

Thanks for contributing the fix to get TM/RSE back to green!

If there are any other stalled gerrits, don't hesitate to reach out to me directly on mattermost or email.

Hello CDT and TM folks,

I have been asked to revive this merge. I believe it makes sense to bring the tm.terminal code into the CDT repo for release engineering purposes in the same way we just merged the launchbar and tools.templates into CDT.

This has been discussed on both cdt-dev and tm-dev mailing lists in the past (the thread I am replying to thread for cdt-dev and for tm-dev).

The current TM repo does not build (out of date target platform).

My biggest concern about doing this is the comment in the TM readme:
== Circular Dependencies

In theory, the RSE and Terminal are independent projects.

In practice, they each depend on each other, which is why we've now merged the RSE ( and Terminal ( repos into a single gerrit repo to resolve this cycle and make building easier.

We already have circular dependencies that we have learned to live with, but I don't really want to add RSE as a new dependency of CDT.

Before I go further down this path I want to solicit input. Does anyone know why this stalled last time? Should we just fix the TM builds as they are (gerrit)?

A while back it was proposed that CDT bring TM Terminal to the CDT.  Doug, is there any progress on this or time-line scheduled? 

Linux Tools Docker tooling requires TM Terminal and as of Monday, Eclipse Target Management is being dropped from Photon aggregation.
