Declaration for the Platform Incubator Project
The Platform Incubator Project is a proposed open-source project under the Eclipse Project (http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/platform-incubator/).
The Eclipse Project currently has separate incubation components under three of its sub-projects: Equinox, Platform, and PDE. Although these components are being used for exploratory/experimental/forward-looking development, they are constrained (because they are located within their respective projects) to follow the strictest Eclipse Foundation IP guidelines.
The Platform Incubator Project will move the existing incubator components to be under the new sub-project so that they fall within the new IP guidelines, which allow projects in incubation more flexibility. The existing component level infrastructure will otherwise be maintained. An additional JDT component will be created when there is a clear need.
You are invited to comment on and/or join the project. Please send all feedback to the news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.platform newsgroup.
