Re: [] Eclipse Development Process 2013

Greetings Architecture Council members,

As we discussed on our last call, I am drafting some changes to the Eclipse Development Process (EDP). We had discussed a complete rewrite in the past, but I don't think that I have the necessary bandwidth to attempt a full rewrite at this time. I'll be focusing my attention on a delta.

I haven't created the revised document yet. I'll be doing that, however, over the next few days.
I found a strange effect when I tried to Google *the* (current) EDP. I entered "eclipse edp" and the top result was:

Let's pretend that I don't know what version (year) is current. So I removed the last URL segment:

I expected to see either the current version (if there's only one version at all) or a list of all versions, possibly with the current one highlighted. But it redirects to:

That document is full of 100s of links but searching for "EDP" reveals a link in the second third:

Which then redirects back to the 2011 version. That leads me to the following questions:

1) Are old versions removed?
2) If not, are they marked as outdated? Possibly with a direct link to either the successor or the current version?
3) Should the index of list all versions (or at least just the current one) plus additional (guideline) docs?



In the meantime, we have several open bugs [1] against the EDP. Your input on these bugs would be helpful.
