Re: [] Helios inclusion exception request for Marketplace Client


We need this.  Better late than never.  I trust it will be improved based on constructive feedback.

I'm giving a +1 as

a) this is something we have been lacking in Eclipse and need to have
something so we can iterate and improve on it
b) the committers responsible for the project have a good track record
and I'm confident they can follow through with commitments

I will state that I don't like this coming late but for the reasons
above, I think it will be a great enabler for the Eclipse ecosystem.

Greetings Planning Council.

I make this request on behalf of the Marketplace Client, and the Technology

The new Eclipse Marketplace Client (MPC) project would like to join the
Helios release train and is requesting an exception from the Planning
Council.  MPC provides direct access from an Eclipse installation to the
Eclipse-based solutions listed on Eclipse Marketplace.   You can think of it
as an App Store like client for the Eclipse community  (but without the
purchase ability).   We believe this will have a significant impact on
promoting the Eclipse ecosystem.

The code has been under development for the last 2 months, is now feature
complete and is now available in the git repository.   Our plan is to
include it in the Java IDE and RPC packages for M6.

While this project has gotten off to a late start, it has progressed quickly
(established project plan [1], website [2], build, etc.). The project is on
track to keep up with the remaining deadlines, maintenance releases, etc.
Marketplace Client is a "leaf" component, only going into a few EPP
packages, so is low risk.
