Re: [tools-pmc] Requesting exception for patch feature shipped by Object Teams

My 2c.  We must be sure that when someone goes to the train repo and says (directly or indirectly) "I want JDT", they get the unpatched JDT.  If they choose (directly or indirectly) to install OT and OT needs a patch, great, but they should not get it "for free".

If there are bugs in p2/b3/... that prevent the above from being true then they need to be fixed or the train repos must contain patches from the JDT team (in this case) that they intend all users to have.
