fyi: I've released the first alpha version of the PHP build: https://github.com/pulse00/lennard-php


I'll try to find some testers for Windows and Linux, as i'm developing on OSX and don't have the resources to fully test
on all platforms.

Any feedback on the featureset of the build would be great.

As far as I know, it was discontinued because the company which was funding the work decided that it was not where they wanted to put their resources. I've been hoping ever since that someone from the community would step forward to resurrect it.

Yes, I was wondering why it was discontinued...

As a historical note, once upon a time, there was a very successful  PHP package on the download page. It would be great to see one again.

hi Robert,
it's a great initiative and I'd love to see you succeed!
If there's anything specific from PDT side that you're missing please
don't hesitate to bug me about it. I'll do anything I can.

From Eclipse Foundation side of things, I always wanted to see Eclipse
PHP package listed on http://www.eclipse.org/downloads. IMHO it has
great visibility, downloads rates for some packages are just enormous
(e.g. magnitude higher than top marketplace packages) and it's sad
that there's no package for PHP devs. Now that you're looking into
packaging, have you considered the EPP initiative? It has it's own
constraints, but maybe would be interesting to you.

Jacek
