[cross-project-issues-dev] unified build process and current base builder

The topic of a unified build process is an interesting and worthwhile one to pursue in the future. My own (quick) thoughts on it is that it would be better to have a good set of tools and processes that would fit in to the way projects want to do builds and their processes, rather than the reverse ... some monolithic processes and extendable scripts that projects would have to fit them selves in to. And,  I suggest, most of these tools and/or scripts should become like other Eclipse deliverables .. API level of stability and support, "owned" by a responsible project, etc.,

Which reminds me ... I know I sure enjoy using the "basebuilder" from the Eclipse Project (we owe them a debt of gratitude ... or chocolate :)

 ... but there is  one timing issue we should plan for: when (or .. should I say if ? )  there is a "final" basebuilder for the Callisto release, when will that be available,   Do other projects use it? (does anyone not use it :)  I'd just like to be sure we use "the right" one as we near the end ... so, thought I'd ask now if "we" (i.e. Kim and Sonia :)
should offer a proposed plan for availability?
