Re: [ide-dev] Dropping the release names (Neon, Oxygen) from user downloads
+1 for Mickael proposal combined with the real months.
If that is considered as to long, +1 for yy.mm

I would prefer a "real" date. Let's assume we release June, August and April we would have:
This reflects IMHO more the idea that "service" releases have been replaced with releases which can provide new functionality.
@Andrey, the release names are not decided by the top-level Eclipse PMC, I think the planning consil is responsible for that.

May I suggest dropping the "20" and just go with a 2-digit year?
IMHO, the 20 is unnecessary and adds clutter. I also think the year scheme feels dated. Yes, I do not worry about the year 2100. :)
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.
