[] Proposal for Eclipse Packaging Project

Declaration for the Eclipse Packaging Project

The Eclipse Packaging Project is a proposed open source project under the Eclipse Technology Project (

Eclipse is seeing tremendous adoption of its tool and platform offerings. With thousands of downloads every day, the Eclipse SDK is the most popular download offering and includes everything needed for plug-in development. However, the Eclipse user base is changing and the philosophy of distributing plug-ins and features individually is less than ideal, especially for developers who are new to Eclipse.

The Eclipse Packaging project aims to provide a set of entry-level single downloads for different user profiles. The goal is to improve the usability and out-of-box experience of developers that want to use multiple Eclipse projects. Although this project will define an initial set of user profiles, it will also provide a platform to enable anyone to create download packages.

You are invited to comment on and/or join the project. Please send all feedback to the news:// newsgroup.
