Thanks Anthony, all great items.
1) Yes, even with CDT we have
everything in the org.eclipse.cdt folder now and should be able to
remove the old cdt-* folders we have there. The only other ones that
are trouble are the Cobol and VE projects, which we are taking a close
look at the moment anyway.
2) Sure. I'm still not sure what
brings all these project together under the Tools PMC anyway. I'd say
part of this exercise would figuring that out.
3) Good point. It would help us
4) Well, the truth is we haven't
had that many meetings... But with Bjorn on board, I think we're
reinvigorated enough to have them more regularly.
And thanks for your interest in
joining the PMC, I'm not sure what are plans are yet but will let you
I have a couple of Tools PMC discussion items and it has turned into a
couple more. So here we go:
1) CVS cleanup.
We have discussed this in the past, but for Galileo we need to make
this happen. The top level /cvsroot/tools is a dogs breakfast of
folders. If we look at /cvsroot/modeling, you will see what we need to
do. (GEF has an orphan folder in there was well).
2) Tools icon and branding.
Most of the other top level projects have a branding icon that shows up
in help + about. I propose we do similar branding. We can also look at
improving the tools website.
3) Bugzilla for Tools PMC
I wanted to raise Bugzillas for (1) and (2), but I had no idea how to
create the Bugzillas. We do not have a top level tools Bugzilla
4) Tools PMC wiki
I knew we had tools PMC meetings, but could not find the minutes, they
were on the PMC Dev list. We should post these on the Tools PMC wiki.
Back to the last tools PMC meeting you had on Aug 26, you state in the
minutes that you were looking for New PMC membership. I am interested.
I am willing to take the lead on all the above four items I am
interested in on behalf of the GEF project.
