+1 from me. As long as we're satisfying licensing restrictions, I don't
see why we wouldn't allow this, especially if it offers users a better
experience. Of course I say that about GPL too ;)

Subject: [tools-pmc] works with dependencies for Mylyn

For the Galileo release Mylyn has introduced linking of third party
"Mylyn Connectors" via a new "Connector Discovery" UI.  From a user
experience and an IP point of view this is identical to WTP's support
for listing and install of Server Adapters (screenshot attached).  We
cleared this with Janet's team way back, but when fixing up our
documentation, I just today noticed that we should get our PMC to
approve Mylyn Connectors as being a "works with" dependency.  The line I
had missed is:

                 2. "works-with" dependencies as determined by the PMC are
approved for 
                 use by the projects without further EMO review.

The full document is at:

Our description as to why these match all of the "works with" dependency
criteria is in the "Third Party Dependencies" section of:


To summarize, I would like to ask the Tools PMC to approve that Mylyn
Connectors are "works with" dependencies, or to open up a discussion if
there is any question about that.
