|Re: [sdv-wg] [EXTERNAL] Embedded World 2023 - Eclipse SDV presentation
- You’re using “no single stack” (or distro) as a mechanism to allow the most experimentation (code first) across projects without constraining participants?Again, you're right. Allowing, by design, overlapping projects we naturally end up with more than one distribution. I imagine the Eclipse SDV WG to offer templates for classes of use cases that the user can modify depending on the specific problem at hand.
If I could be so bold, I would like to express a different opinion on this topic.
I think that it is very possible that SDV could ship multiple,
perhaps even competing, distributions. This is not a value just
for these early days, it is true even in the far distant future
when we have crossed the chasm from experimentation to mature
Take a look at the Eclipse IDE
package download page which delivers multiple distributions
made from different and overlapping selections of projects, each
specially tuned to a particular segment of users and use cases. I
can imagine a future mature SDV community doing some similar
I also believe that there are lessons that can be learned from
how the Eclipse Packages are defined, constructed, and delivered
by their Simultaneous Release process.
I hope that makes sense to folks!
