Re: [eclipse-pmc] Concerns Regarding Sub-Project Merege

Hi Dani,

I'm still +1 for merging all platform projects together with Equinox
into one platform project.

All current leads should become co-leads for the new project, as we
discussed earlier.

For PDE and JDT I have no strong feelings, IMHO we could leave them as
separate projects.

Maybe we could merge JDT core and JDT UI, there seems to be very
little activity in JDT UI at the moment. Again, I have no strong
feeling here, just a suggestion to simplify the setup in JDT.

Best regards, Lars
