Greetings Architecture Council members,
I found a strange effect when I tried to Google *the* (current) EDP.
I entered "eclipse edp" and the top result was:
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.
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
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2) If not, are they marked as outdated?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 http://www.eclipse.org/projects/dev_process/
list all versions (or at least just the current one) plus additional
In the meantime, we have several open bugs  against the EDP.
Your input on these bugs would be helpful.
