<stuff deleted>We've already had the discussion with the press regarding Java 8. I still think that it belongs on the list. While I'd like to keep ECF on this short list, I'm not sure how much hay we can make from it at marketing level. Ian is the expert here, so he and I will make the final decision together.
Objection. Frankly...not to put too fine a point on it...I don't really believe in the EF/marketing's judgment here. ECF has been an EF project for almost 10 years now, and I think it's completely fair to say that ECF has received little to no promotion by EF marketing during that entire time. Further, it remains an ongoing marketing battle for RT projects like ECF to prove that they are relevant not only to the work on Java8 (which it clearly is), but also completely relevant to IoT as well (which it also clearly is...along with Equinox and probably others).
And...ECF is under consideration as the reference implementation for the R6 OSGi Remote Services/Remote Service Admin specifications...which is also relevant to the 'cloud' and IoT directions. This cannot be announced...as I would prefer to...because the choice has not yet been made and OSGi won't be completing the choice in time for Luna.
