I was actually under the impression that the VE project was “under
repair”, and that things were improving.
Any news on how things are progressing? We have an active
interest in participation below. Who can help Radu get involved in the project?

Subject: Eclipse Visual Editor project
I'm very sorry to disturb you but the lack of answers from the Visual Editor
newsgroup left me with no other choice. I am a happy user of the Eclipse IDE
and among other Eclipse projects I use Visual Editor. As you might know this
project was abandoned by the foundation about 2 years ago (you know the reasons
better than me and I'm not judging this decision). The problem is that during
those two years some developers tried to contribute patches and versions
suitable for new Eclipse releases but there is actually nobody with CVS commit
rights on the Visual Editor project willing to help in any way. As a result,
their code is available to download from sourceforge or other non Eclipse sites
I am willing to help this project because I know how usefull is for the
development or Java GUI applications and that's why I'm searching for a
solution to keep it alive. Maybe someone from the foundation can help by
updating the CVS and the builds of this project with the contributed code, or
maybe the commit rights can be given to somebody who can work on the project.
Or maybe there is some other solution ...
Again, sorry for the email but the situation is very disturbing for the users
of the Visual Editor.
Thanks for a reply and keep up the good work,
