Re: [eclipse-pmc] Marking some Platform API for future deletion

Good point Martin. I have added a description to the bug taken from the porting guide about the state of the presentation API. In short this API is not implemented in 4.2. Invoking it or extending it will simply have no effect.

Re: [eclipse-pmc] Marking some Platform API for future deletion

Hi John,
The bug is missing a discussion / rationale for deleting “org.eclipse.ui.presentations”
I know that this has been discussed at length in other forums, but as we’re voting on the deletion in bulk we should also have a concise description and rationale for what we’re voting on. Can you point us to something ?
I’m OK for all the other deletions as per your reference, these have been deprecated for a while and the rationale makes sense.

[eclipse-pmc] Marking some Platform API for future deletion

I am proposing that we mark some Platform API for future deletion according to our deletion policy [1]. These are all APIs that are no longer functional in Platform 4.2, so documenting them as marked for future deletion is the clearest possible signal that clients should immediately stop using them. The complete list is in this bug report:

We can discuss at tomorrow's PMC call. For PMC members that can't make the call, please vote on this mailing list, since API deletion requires consensus of all PMC members.
