Hi Doug

I suggest to have the discussions for the UI guidelines on Those from the Architecture Council and IDE mailing lists can join there.

Excellent! Thank you.

As for my AI regarding FEEP: I see two choices: have a UI designer just clean up what we have already, e.g. replace outdated examples and screenshots with what we shipped in Neon. That way it won't look like a dead document anymore. Or we wait until we have some concrete changes that we want to see applied to the document.

I’m not sure it’s urgent. It would be good to have the examples/screenshots updated though so it’s up to date. We may be a while before we reach any decisions on anything larger.

Hey gang, as Martin noted, I’ll be driving a renewed effort with a committee studying and providing UI Guidelines and more generally User Experience Guidelines that we would want all projects, internal and third party, to follow when contributing to the Eclipse IDE User Interface.

I need to figure out a couple of logistics but look for an e-mail here where I will ask for volunteers to help contribute ideas to the effort. This really needs to be a community effort so we can maximize peer pressure to help projects do the right thing, so I may expand it to more than just the Architecture Council at least for input. At times, making decisions will be hard, but we need to have a strong front to make a difference and not everyone will be happy as individuals. Hopefully we can all rise above that and focus on the end goal of making the Eclipse IDE a world leader again.

More when I figure out how to proceed. But really looking forward to what we can achieve.
