RE: [dsdp-tm-dev] Committers please vote: [api]removingremoteSystemsViewPreferencesActions anddynamicPopupMenuExtensions extension points

Well, getting rid of that specific extension point ... is a +10 from me

I'm absolutly sure that the standard eclipse extension points provides
all functionality required. We even had set ourself (for our product
target manager) a constraint which forbids programmatic contribution of
actions to context menus or toolbars, and we've not broken it as we have
rebased to RSE 2.0.

Cheers, Uwe
