Re: [mylyn-pmc] [mylyn-integrators] Mylyn to be removed from Eclipse packages

Note that there's nothing preventing anyone from installing Mylyn, it just won't be included by default in most Eclipse downloads.

I have to say that I will be disappointed to see Mylyn disappear. It has been part of our development process for over a decade. We might be willing to take this on, unless there are suitable replacements.

Subject: [mylyn-integrators] Mylyn to be removed from Eclipse packages




It has been proposed that Mylyn be removed from most Eclipse packages [1]. So far only the PHP and Committers packages are planning to continue to include Mylyn. This is a result of the lack of activity on the project and (real or perceived) lack of use of Mylyn.


Mylyn is a stable and mature project, but as various project committers have moved on, there is very little capacity left to maintain it. For now, Mylyn will remain in the SimRel but if this becomes a problem, I will remove it unless a suitable party has stepped up to take on the necessary maintenance.


Note that this refers to Mylyn Tasks/Context/etc. and not Mylyn Wikitext.
