RE: [tools-pmc] Fwd: PDT Incubator Project

I'll leave Wayne answer these questions, but from the PDT project
perspective I can note that we propose this project as the platform that
will allow us to add new features to the project without forgetting
stability and maturity of the core project. I saw many contributions (as
you listed) lately that could be easily be part of PDT but their
stability and updatability is a problem now. 

Thanks for sharing,

Are not general incubator projects a thing of past? I know we in WTP 
started one before there were some changes in Eclipse Dev. Guide which 
made it easier to start new, specific projects, which would still start
the incubating state, under the appropriate project. We've done the 
"specific" case for the recent Pave project, for example, and expect our

general incubator to be phased out as its current components are
or archived. 

I'm not opposed to this (or other) general incubating projects, but feel

we (Eclipse) should be clear on which direction to steer projects in ...

as it is currently a bit confusing. 

For the three example in the proposal, Aspect PDT, SmartyPDT, AST View,
seems they would already be in PHP scope, so I assume the main need to a

place to put the code, and for some people to have new committer rights,

without having full committer rights to the core PHP code? I don't mean
make more work for anyone ... but wouldn't this be the case to propose 
three small incubating projects, each with a defined goal and scope? If 
not, that's fine, but I'd like to understand why not. 

Again, either outcome is fine with me ... I just think there should be a

clear direction from Eclipse Dev. Guide (i.e. Wayne :)
