this means we will lose the „Help > Report Bug or Enhancement” feature in the IDE.

I think this really is a killer feature we lose.

Also the extension points for this menu are used by products based on Eclipse. When Mylyn now is no longer pre-packaged with the EPPs it’s really a hassle for Eclipse based products to have a dependency to Mylyn.

Should those products now really build something on their own?

Subject: [mylyn-dev] Mylyn to be removed from Eclipse packages




It has been proposed that Mylyn be removed from most Eclipse packages [1]. So far only the PHP and Committers packages are planning to continue to include Mylyn. This is a result of the lack of activity on the project and (real or perceived) lack of use of Mylyn.


Mylyn is a stable and mature project, but as various project committers have moved on, there is very little capacity left to maintain it. For now, Mylyn will remain in the SimRel but if this becomes a problem, I will remove it unless a suitable party has stepped up to take on the necessary maintenance.


Note that this refers to Mylyn Tasks/Context/etc. and not Mylyn Wikitext.
