Subject: RE: [tools-pmc] RE: [pdt-dev] Deskzilla license key for the PDT
From what I
understand, no one is required to use Deskzilla for PDT. It's an optional
client for interacting with the existing Eclipse bugzilla (tied
to PDT) so in this case, no new "shared" infrastructure is needed,
Deskzilla is just a new client for the Eclipse bugzilla system.
I think the
"acid test" that makes this one ok, is that if the Deskzilla
license went away tommorow, regular web based bugzilla would still be fine and
the project could continue without Deskzilla.
Andi - could
you please confirm or correct my interpretation of the use of Deskzilla for PDT
Mike - does
this make it acceptable or do we need to wait for EMO/Board policy to be

[tools-pmc] RE: [pdt-dev] Deskzilla license key for the PDT
Yes. Exactly :-)
Like I said, we (the EMO and Board) are working on a policy to clarify
The line is somewhat fuzzy, but where it is currently drawn is along the
lines of tools which are used in the *shared* development process which are
not broadly or generally available. Scarce availability to those tools
create an impediment to the involvement of contributors and/or new
committers in a project. So Windows XP, Outlook and Internet Explorer are
not issues. One could easily assert that they are either (a) massively
available to most professional developers and/or (b) easily replaced with
open source equivalents (Linux, Firefox, Thunderbird). In any case, the
those particular tools are not directly involved in the software production
chain or process. The tools are more problematic are things like
testing frameworks, issue tracking/management, code generation tools, build
managers and the like. In scenarios where the team uses proprietary tools
those types in the production and release processes
I would encourage everyone with an opinion on this topics to make it known
to the committer board reps so that your viewpoints can be duly represented
in the board discussions.
