I like the idea of shifting the IDE downloads presentation to the IDE page and have the main download page just have a single button/link to jump to the IDE page. That would give us more control over how we present packages and other install options without impacting the overall diversity message.

 

Thanks,

Iâll only make one more comment on this subject. It appears there are different measures of the size of the Eclipse community. Many of us here on the ide-dev list are counting users, 6 million by certain counts, not sure how accurate that is. And the list of packages used to be ranked by that number.

 

The board has decided to promote diversity instead (despite earlier overtures of focusing on users). Diversity is a reasonable thing to show off if youâre trying to grow the community so I canât argue it much.

 

Weâve long discussed that the Eclipse IDE needs itâs own web presence. Weâve been too busy trying to fix up the IDE to have any focus on that. But at the end of the day, thatâs where we need to go.

 

Doug.

Hi All, 

 

I added also Bug 502210 - Improve Eclipse.org download page

 

This is mainly to give voice to the hard-core users of the Eclipse Download page.

Hi Ian, all,

I've reported https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=502208 which proposes a way to save some (enough?) space on this page without removing content nor totally changing the style.
