[eclipse.org-planning-council] Re: What's the meaning of "Popular Projects" in the download page?

Yossi, Ken, (and everyone),

To answer both your questions...

Does anyone know what's the meaning of "Popular Projects" in http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/? It doesn't include JDT so it's
> obviously not that most downloadable projects.

The Popular Projects is my little heaven of controversy that I like to hang onto for purely masochist purposes.

You can read about the why and the how on this bug:

Essentially, it's based on the popularity of the project home page. The Eclipse project's projects rarely score very high, as no one seems to go to their project pages.

Agh, I just know you'll beat me up for this, but .. here goes. I make them up. The project names are very long and don't fit well inside the small space, so I pretend like I'm smart and abridge the name a little. I know it lacks consistency etc etc but it just looks so much better than:

4. Model
Tools (MDT)

Feel free to post comments on the above bug.
