But it would be good to have a benevolent dictator or committee pick out the best packages that would be of the most benefit for as many people in the community as possible. It’s a political mine field, to say the least. And I’ll leave it at that before I say anything I’ll regret :).

It is possible that none of this makes sense for the default installer used by millions just to get a working Eclipse running on their desktop.

However, the ability to create, store and share Oomph profiles which describe the various configurations of language editors, tools, etc. could be the solution you really want. I think we can all agree that dramatically reducing the time and effort to install and configure an Eclipse workbench is a worthy goal. Plus the ability to save an executable description of that installation for later use, or to share with your friends and colleagues.
