Re: [tools-pmc] Termination review for VE

"All Projects are required to participate in at least one Review per year." (section 6.3)

A project needs to do either a release, restructuring, or continuation review every year. The only exception is that permanent incubator projects are not required to have reviews of any kind. We do a bad job of policing this. I have done a little work on some scripts that will help me identify those projects that need a review; I'll roll that out sometime soon...

Maybe we should take this opportunity to require that a projects (with the exception of permanent incubators) must do a *release* every year.

I’ll throw another thought into the mix, and maybe this should be input to the Eclipse Development Process. But I think the key criteria for a project at Eclipse to continue is that they promise to have official releases. If a project never releases, at least officially through the IP process, but still wants to keep the code alive, then maybe we should be encouraging to move it to somewhere a little less official, like Eclipse Labs. Would that be a better home for VE?

+1 ...

... as long as we remain sensitive to any needs/rampdown the project wants to do. I suggest we start the formal termination review, and if a literal archive is not desired then Yves (or other interested party) can turn it into a 'continuation review' ... explaining what the concrete plans are, etc.

Any (other) PMC member want to volunteer to draft the termination review document? I think source (or examples) could be "snagged" from recent cases that I did, if that helps. Found these searching this list:

Attachment: HibachiTerminationReview.odt
Attachment: HibachiTerminationReview.pdf
And then Cobol was before that .. .pdf

I did check cvs activity of VE for the past year, and I can't say its "zero" ... the top line in following "dash table" actually appears to be for "JEM" bundles, which have moved to WTP project (years ago).
I suspect the last substantial activity in July and November of last year ... perhaps "build related"? Getting up on latest Eclipse?


Looking at bugzilla ... there are two that have been marked "fixed" in past year, both related to "build to the latest Eclipse", apparently.

Yes, John and I talked about that at EclipseCon. I think we’re ready. Let’s start the vote.

[tools-pmc] FW: [ve-dev] Error installing

Esteemed Tools PMC,

Can we please please pretty please archive this project?

Especially now with WindowBuilder in full development, I see no reason to avoid end-of-lifing VE.

[ve-dev] Error installing

Hello EveryOne,

I’ve Just downloaded “” from eclipse website.
After that I’ve downloaded for Helios, in agreement with the site: “”, and I try to install it.

But, for my surprise, there is an error on the installation:

The artifact file for osgi.bundle,,1.5.0.R20101202-1328 was not found.
session context was:(profile="" phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Install, operand=null --> [R] 1.5.0.R20101202-1328, action="">
Please, have somebody the solution for this problem ? Is a VE a discontinuous or deprecated project ? Have anyone noted that problem until now ?

Thank you in Advance,
