Disabling all projects every year will always cause such issues : the
Acceleo team was in holidays for most of August, which makes us "miss"
M1. The same goes for ATL. Per change, we had one of the EMF Compare
Team at hand to activate that one contribution (and even still, he had
to tweak our build to manually remove features for which our
dependencies are also marked as disabled).
I think that leaving the contributions "enabled" would be better than
forcing everyone into this situation : we have to load the aggregator,
enable our contribution, check if it works... and come back at regular
intervals to check for our dependencies' enablement. This is time
consuming for those of us who depend on a few projects... and
frustrating since we know that we are in turn blocking others. Not to
mention that this always comes at a time where most of us are in
holidays and just cannot react.
I think this had already been discussed last year, and I do not know if
leaving all projects "enabled" by default is better, at least it would
not block anything.
Grégoire, Acceleo will be enabled some time tomorrow (CEST), sorry for

such as "graphiti", "gmf"? a few emf ones? and DLTK are definitely "building blocks" that need to be enabled or else others downstream can not function or be enabled. If you are a "consuming" project and need some of those lower level ones enabled, I'd encourage
a lot of "project-to-project" communication so they know how much you depend on them, and the effect they have by being "late" or incomplete, etc.
