[eclipse.org-architecture-council] [Bug 261365] New: Clarify that EPP packages are not supported products

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=261365  
Product/Component: Community / Cross-Project
           Summary: Clarify that EPP packages are not supported products
           Product: Community
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Cross-Project
        AssignedTo: cross-project.inbox@xxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: martin.oberhuber@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
                CC: eclipse.org-architecture-council@xxxxxxxxxxx


In the December Board Meeting [1][2], the Eclipse Board of Directors decided
that there should be more clarification indicating that the EPP packages are
not supported products.

The Architecture Council has picked up this discussion in its January Meeting
[3], and some interesting new ideas were collected, but we didn't come to a
full conclusion. I believe that the issue is really more something for the
Planning Council to address since it directly affects the release train and its
perception in the Community. It seems less related to any technical issues.

Other ideas included clarifying the state of the packages in a positive way
(Jeff: "the package is available FOR FREE") or similar to the recent Windows-7
beta (Martin: "Your comments and suggestions on bugzilla are very valuable for
us, but we cannot guarantee any response") or by showing member ads for
commercial products in a "report a bug" wizard. 

For now, I'm putting this bug on cross-project for further discussion, though
this might not be its final destination since EPP and Phoenix/Website may also
be affected.
