I understand this point. But that's not the only purpose/strategic goal for EF projects (to beat NetBeans/Visual Studio). Other projects have other needs...like further distribution/popularization, emerging/new technical areas for tooling, enabling RCP apps, etc. I don't think these are inherently any less important to the community as a whole (e.g. committer community, user community, etc).
But the last I checked, EF wasn't a business. So who decides who doesn't 'make the cut'?
