I do want to point out that traditional
conventions at eclipse create the project web site at www.eclipse.org/component-name
(CDT/JDT) and now PDT. This root web site naming scheme also
ensures that we don't get project package conflicts
Currently the web site is www.eclipse.org/php
and to be consistent we'll need to add www.eclipse.org/pdt . I am
assuming we can leave the old one for URL compatibility.

[tools-pmc] Re: Changing the name of
PHP IDE Project to PDT
I think this is a fine idea. Thinking about potential conflicts, I can
imagine that the Pascal tools might want the same "PDT" name
- no, wait, we don't have any Pascal tools... Let's see: Perl tools? Python
tools? ... nope, we don't have those either and the Dynamic Language Toolkit
(DLTK) project is going to cover them under DLTK. So I think we're completely

The PHP project was officially called when
proposed to Eclipse.org PDT (PHP Development Tool).
During that time, it was changed to PHP IDE
which doesn’t fully describe the project and also doesn’t follow the
standard of other tools such as CDT and JDT.
I would suggest (after Andi Gutmans was consulting
Mike about it as well) to change the name back to PDT just before we going
on the process of release candidates.
There shouldn’t be too many changes since
the plugins are named as org.eclipse.php.* and also the web site.
Please let me know whether it’s approved
so I can continue with the process.
