On behalf of Corrosion project and as Tools PMC
representative I'm asking for exception for (really) late
addition to Photon release train for M7.
Rust language is fast gaining popularity and this project
is working hard to provide a complete IDE for Rust developers.
The project is done according to latest standards for language
tooling - using RustLS (the official language server
developed by the Rust community) and all the Eclipse projects
providing easy glue - LSP4E, LSP4J, TM4E and etc.
The project looks to provide a dedicated EPP package for
Rust developers but a prerequisite for generating an EPP
package is the project to be part of the release train. As no
other projects depends on it I believe the change will not
cause any disruption.
Please give your opinion on the topic. I'm looking forward
to Eclipse based Rust IDE!
Original mail to Tools PMC list with all the links:
regarding Eclipse Corrosion: the Eclipse IDE for Rust
This is a request for Corrosion to join the Photon
Simultaneous release. To do such I require the PMC and
planning council to approve the below request.
(Request first made here:https://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/cross-project-issues-dev/msg15471.html
then sent to get approval from the planning council)
Please excuse the late request, the project joined Eclipse at
M4 but is required within the SimRel for Corrosion to be
released through EPP to allow for a lighter weight IDE for
Rust developers and to offer the first one-click-download Rust
