Re: [] MDT Project names for Indigo

Hi Kenn

I think we have to check with Wayne or at least EMO anyway, since the names in question are mostly only EMO-editable. Will you do so, or shall I? I can ask about MDT/OCL but it will be a bit odd for me to ask to change MDT/UML2's name. (I'm only proposing changes to descriptive names; no changes to functional component/sub-component names such as Bugzilla, Project-Summary-ids - nb CVS has already changed.)

We'd probably need to check with Wayne to see whether it's possible to change the name of the projects. The current names were "grandfathered" at a time when the concept of a "component" still existed (at least in some of our minds), hence it was important to include the parent project in the name and nest newsgroups, Bugzilla components, etc.. Since then, the Foundation has moved towards exposing sub-projects at the top level, with a flat(ter) newgroup and Bugzilla structure...

Hi lists the Indigo projects.

The MDT project prefix for OCL, UML, XSD seems very unhelpful; it is only meaningful to Eclipse administration experts.

Acceleo is not M2T Acceleo, Xtext is not TMF Xtext, QVTo is not M2M QVT... so why MDT?

Ok. EMF is used for EMF projects, but to drop EMF on Compare or Query or Transaction would be confusing.

Is it too late to drop MDT from our public names?
