Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Disabling Mylyn from SimRel + Removing related Orbit workarounds

Hi Jonah,

Since Passage was never depending from Mylyn it was surprising to see it disabled. As I understood, it was done because Passage does not mirror all the used Orbit bundles to its p2 site.
Please don't get me wrong, but the gap between notification [1] and action seems a bit tight to me: about 1 day without technical space to fix it.

Perhaps I missed something important during the past years but the rule to always mirror Orbit dependencies to the component p2 site was neither clearly articulated nor enforced previously.

To avoid future misunderstanding I've created a ticket [2] to improve Project Handbook regrading SimRel participation.
@Wayne, @Alexander please invest your time to polish the formulation of this [new?] constraint for Eclipse projects that are willing to participate SimRel.

Thank you,

Probably correct, but I don't have the nerve to disable (or knowledge/time to fix) Mylyn. 

Hi folks,

It is time to remove the temporary workarounds. When I had a look today I realised that more and more projects are relying on the temporary workaround initially put in place for Mylyn.

Over a year ago I filed numerous bugs asking projects to fix their contributions, some projects were very responsive and others I have not heard back from.

Therefore for M2 I plan to disable all projects from SimRel that aren't up to date or have otherwise started relying on these workarounds. I will submit the following gerrits[1,2] after 2022-03 M1 is done. Please see the gerrits for what is disabled. I attempted to only disable features where possible and not entire contributions.

The affected projects are (with some comments):
- Mylyn (fully disabled Bug 569078)
- Passage (only one feature, so fully disabled)
- DTP (many features, lots because Lucene 7.x is no longer provided by Eclipse Platform? + Bug 569181)
- WTP (Bug 568136)
- m2e-wtp (JPA related code)
- PDT (Composer feature needs org.apache.commons.exec) 
- soa-bpel (depends on disabled WTP features)

[1] - Remove the Orbit direct contribution to SimRel workaround
