Re: [mpc-dev] Auto-filter MPC based on Eclipse Package
This definitely paints a clearer picture.
To dig a little further, if the Eclipse Marketplace backend were to
handle that parameter and return some results, would it be to the full
set of solutions? I don't want anything to prevent users from seeing
all the solutions, but it would be nice if the solutions for mobile
and embedded devices were listed first.
I say this, since the user has chosen a specific package, presumably
he wants solutions for those roles. At least at first, then they can
look for other tools to fulfill their job role.
