Hi Lars. |
Great question. Yes, we have asked for all the work to be done via
a bug, and will continue to do so going forward.
I should have made clear, though, the status of the development
efforts from the first round.
- the work being done by Ed via the FEEP contract is now complete.
We had agreed with Ed to limit the scope of the effort to making the
improvements he implemented, and agreed that making significant
inroads on startup performance would require too much additional
effort, and ran the risk of impacting in "unintended" ways.
- The work being done by Obeo is still in its early stages.
On an ongoing basis, we'll add ensuring the status of the bugs gets
updated as part of opening and closing the FEEP development

thanks for the update. Is it possible to follow the
work via a bug? Or will the result be send around via email?
For example, I have seen several patches from Ed,
some are already merged, some await review and some await an
update from Ed. But AFAICS I cannot see somewhere if the FEEP is
finished or not.
Same for the other two points, except that I think I
have not seen patches for them.
Best regards, Lars

We wanted to update you on the FEEP program, our development program funded exclusively
through the Friends of Eclipse program
The first round of FEEP proposals led to 3 contracts being
- Implement Auto-Save of Editors -> Obeo ($20,000)
- Address Outstanding Issues - Toolbar and Menu
Contributions -> Obeo ($20,000)
- Identify Opportunities to Improve Start-up times ->
Ed Merks ($5,000)
Thank you to those of you who submitted proposals, and
especially to Ed and Obeo.
Also, thanks to those who provided feedback on the process
and the specific RFPs. Based on your feedback, we are
working to ensure it is easier to scope the effort of work
required for each development effort.
Since the first round, the Architecture Council spent
significant effort to provide a list of their priorities as
recommendations for FEEP projects. This input has been
great to more clearly identify on what areas to focus, and
to better clarify the desired outcomes. Many thanks to the
effort to everyone who participated in making this happen!!
The next round of request for proposals will be released no
later than Wednesday of this week, and will remain open for
approximately 2 weeks. We hope you will consider working on
these important initiatives to improve the Eclipse
