Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Are too many packages actually hurting Eclipse?

Are you suggesting forcing webtools on all java developers? Seriously?
I've just had a new look at the Eclipse community survey and since about 45% (~=100% - web dev perventage - RCP percentage - non-Java users percentage) of Java users are doing something else that Web or Plugin development, it seems indeed that a Java package without WTP makes sense.
The use cases are people doing some server side stuff and plugins for various non-web applications (Maven, Jenkins, Ant...).

So I'm changing my mind and now agree that two distinct "Java" and "Java for Web development" package would still make sense. However I still keep thinking that "Eclipse Standard" doesn't help much.
