Re: [eclipse-pmc] Build on the plan

Hi Eugene,

It is a longer term goal for PDE to support multiple target platforms in 
the workspace similar to multiple JREs. First we need to design/implement 
flexible and robust ways to define, manipulate, and share target plaform 
definitions. Then we need to ensure that an implementation supporting 
multiple target definitions can perform acceptably (mostly memory 
footprint issues).

It is our plan to work towards this - but we're not committing to this in

  Darin, can you please clarify why use case for specifying target 
platform per-project is not being considered? Eg. you can specify Java 
runtime per project, but why not the target platform?

  Currently it is really painful to develop code that need to work on 
more then one version of Eclipse Platform or if it uses conflicting API 
from non-Platfrom projects, such as Mylyn (which had changed its API 3 
times in last year and a half, from 1.0 to 3.0 now).
