Merging everything was surprising to me ( I heard about it yesterday
although I love the idea). The original discussion IIRC was to have
Eclipse TLP with Platform/PDE/JDT(maybe Equinox as 4th when it moves)
and I still think this is the best path forward as it will keep 4 main
 Keeping the current status is clearly not working but we can continue
merging projects one by one as we were doing by now but this just
costs more time and creates more noise in the system.
