+1 on terminating rt.equinox.security.
Effectively we did this during the Git migration and forgot to do the full
I don't care either way about combining
bundles+framework. They do have fairly distinct committer lists and they
seem to be functioning fine in their current form. On the other hand I
would trust all the committers to only work in their area of expertise
so I have nothing against combining them. I tend to agree with Wayne that
effectively they operate as a single project.
On the website, the other big issue
is that the Equinox download directory is owned by the website project.
So between the downloads and web sites I do think all the Equinox committers
need to have commit rights. Whether that is done via a separate project
or ACL magic from the webmasters like Platform does, I don't mind either
way. When dealing with several different directories I tend to think
the ACL approach would be a pain to manage. Looking at the members of the
website ACL, it does look in need of some cleanup at least - even McQ is
a committer there :)

rt.equinox.security should have been
roled up into rt.equinox.bundles. At least we moved all the security
code into the rt.equinox.bundles repository and have one commit group for
that repository. So technically it is a candidate for termination,
but the code did not go away.
Personally I would be fine with combining rt.equinox.bundles and rt.equinox.framework
into one project under rt.equinox and leaving rt.equinox.p2 as the sole
subproject. This means all rt.equinox.bundles committers would gain
commit rights to the rt.equinox.framework repo and vise-versa. I'm
not sure what to do about rt.equinox.website project. If you have
an easy way to also combine it into rt.equinox then that is fine. But
we must allow rt.equinox.p2 committers to still have access to the web
Others have opinions?

I just noticed that some of the Equinox subprojects do not have any source
repositories listed . In fact, most of them have no metadata specified
Further, upon inspection, it appears that the rt.equinox.security project
has no resources associated with it (no Git repository, no downloads that
I can detect, no website). Is this project still viable, or is it a candidate
The rt.equinox.website project is a hold over from the bad-old-days. Is
that project still required? Can we kill it and assign the website repository
Is it still valuable to have Equinox subprojects at all? Based on the use
of the projects, it seems that the only purpose is to keep the committer
lists distinct. Is this still necessary? AFAICT, only rt.equinox.p2 seems
to be operating as a separate project. Does it make sense to consider rolling
the rest of the projects up into the parent?
