However, if I remember the discussion
correctly regarding exception requests at the last Planning Council meeting,
one piece of information that was desired in a request is "why"
the project is doing a late request (to help avoid similar problems in
the future). So just wondering for EEF; it's a really new project?
Somebody forgot to fill out a form? Something else?

Exception Request for EEF
I'd like to request an exception for including EMFT's Extended Editing
Framework, EEF in the Helios release train. It's an important
complementary tool to the highly used and deployed EMF.Edit framework,
providing reusable polished forms-style support for editing model
properties. This framework allows developers to generate high quality
interfaces for Eclipse or RCP and as such will be an asset for the
Modeling project specifically and to the Eclipse Platform generally; it
helps put the rich into Rich Client Platform. It's developed and
supported by folks from Obeo, an Eclipse Strategic Developer. With their
past track record and experience developing and supporting EMF's compare
framework, I'm confident they'll have no problems meeting all the
obligations of being on the train.
