[dsdp-pmc] RE: [dsdp-tm-dev] I am working on

Hi Michael,

first of all thanks for all your great work. Looking at how 
many people CCed on your bugzilla items, I got an impression
of how hot the terminal is with the community!

There seems to be still some misunderstanding between what TM
and RSE is [1]. Target Management is a Project, a plain organizational
entity. As such, it produces multiple components, some of which
have no dependencies to anything except the Platform.

Currently, the TM project provides of the tm.core and tm.rse 

The tm.core component is meant for base components that can be
used independently of RSE, and each other. Right now, tm.core
  - the terminal
  - the discovery core component
There will be no problem providing a separate ZIP download
for the terminal alone, without any dependencies to RSE.

With this background, my feeling is that tm.core is the
right place for the terminal.

Regarding checkin:
When you are planning to create multiple plugins, the 
new terminal won't interfere with the old one anyways, 
since the plugin Ids (and thus project Ids) will be 
different. For example:

These are just random examples. Let's discuss the plugin
structure on Bugzilla, and check in the code as soon as
there is sufficient agreement regarding the component
and plugin split-up.

[1] The TM and RSE FAQ also has an item on the differences
    between TM and RSE:
