Re: [mylyn-pmc] Mylyn Project Restructuring

Thanks for the quick response. I think there needs to be a discussion about who will do release engineering for Wikitext before we can move forward. Currently it is mostly done by me as part of Mylyn releases but it's inconvenient because I am not a committer on Mylyn Docs. If Wikitext is going to become a separate project with separate releases, someone else will need to take on that work.


Sam Davis
Software Engineer, Tasktop Dev
Committer, Eclipse Mylyn

No, this is not a requirement. A project may want to decide to use a new namespace in the future. However, given the existing community it doesn't make sense to break all adopters at this time.

For the detailed list of actions that will happen, see here:

Not yet. This will start as part of the restructuring.
