Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Can SLF4J be made the official logging API for Eclipse projects?

AFAIK the policy is projects should be adding such bundles to their p2 repos. That is certainly what CDT does.

However, I don't know if that is written down or really just convention. 

End users should not be pointing at orbit p2 repos.

and hit a silly problem; who redistributes SLF4J?

If it's standard, surely the platform should redistribute so that a copy
can be found in e.g. ?

There is no SLF4J there. There is no log4j either. Where does log4j come
form? It turns out that EGit redistributes both log4j and SLF4J. Very
helpful, but surely not right?

What is the preferred policy for redistribution of SLF4J? Does every
project need to redistribute it itself to avoid piggy-backing on EGit or
mandating that users manually add Orbit to their Install sites?
