Re: [] Next Planning Council call : May2

Yes, I can see that guidance from the community would be expected.   Looking at the package branding on we see that many are "Eclipse IDE for *"  but some are just "Eclipse for *" and those probably don't fit the current guidelines.  Can you comment on their conformance to the current guidelines?

In the end, "Eclipse IDE" is definitely not very sexy, but if all the packages were to be branded that way, does it still make sense that the release train have its own different unique brand? Should we wait and see what happens to the name of "The Eclipse Project"? Perhaps we might consider "Eclipse Eclectic" as a name for the train.  It is both descriptive of what the train actually is and it's a simple noun that has some resonance.

The proposal was to replace this with YYYY-MM on the splash screen and the suggestion was that the Foundation would determine what's on the web page, likely using Eclipse IDE YYYY-MM for lack of any other lively branding.

FWIW, I believe that the idea that the Foundation will solely determine what's on the web page is not a good one. The community needs to feel some ownership over what we call this as well.
