Re: [ide-dev] Dropping the release names (Neon, Oxygen) from user downloads

+1 from me to.
I'm with Eclipse since years but I'm constantly failing to remember which name maps to which year/release while reading bugzilla reports saying "I'm using Luna".
Lars, can you bring it up to the PMC meeting?
Kind regards,
Andrey Loskutov

Betreff: [ide-dev] Dropping the release names (Neon, Oxygen) from user downloads
Hi all, 
In thinking about the Eclipse IDE more as a product, I want to toss up the suggestion of dropping the release names i.e Neon, Oxygen from anything user facing i.e. download site, etc. 
The summary is that they unnecessarily add confusion for anyone not intimately familiar with Eclipse. I suggest replacing the releases simply with the year they go out. Perhaps with some convention for intermediate releases.
