Re: [eclipse.org-planning-council] Release Train Name: Eclipse IDE

Nick,

It's the Eclipse IDE release train. Please don't vote based on a sidetracked discussion on "Classic". This is a made up term used as an example. The Foundation may just use some other term.

FWIW, I like it. It's descriptive and clear to everyone. It's also consistent. Mind you - we already call every single on of our package downloads "Eclipse IDE for <whatever>".

Do we REALLY want to remind people of New Coke? Are we implying that failing to name the train something with a Q after Photon was an equally bad marketing decision, but we're not actually introducing a better name, just pragmatically differentiating from the other trains which don't release quarterly?

We can use this in splash screens, landing pages and everywhere where the scope is clear. The Eclipse Foundation can use another name where the scope is not clear, e.g. downloads page, main page, marketing, etc. Most likely they will use "Eclipse Classic IDE", but that is not yet nailed in stone.
