Hi David

Thanks for the +1. See below for my answers.

Best Regards

+1 from me. Looks quite satisfactory for a "0.1.0" release.

The following comments are not part of the "PMC Review" ... just comments from a "naive user's" point of view.
One part of the "docu-ware" I found a little confusing (well ... many of the acronyms and standards I didn't really understand, but assume someone "in that field" would understand them, just fine) ... but, the confusing part to me was at the very beginning .... "will provide an update site for installing its features on top of an existing Eclipse installation as well as a standalone RCP."
I'm sure it'd be obvious "in practice" but not sure how to install a "standalone RCP app" from an update site. I mean, you have to start with something?
I can imagine several ways to do it, or, maybe you meant the RCP app is a separate download?
Sorry for the confusion. We meant that we will have an update site as usual. But we also provide a standalone RCP for users to download. The RCP is meant for trouble-shooter, testers, sys admin etc. that don't want to install a full IDE. They just want to use the Trace Compass features.

Again, don't mean any of that as "negative" towards a release. Was just something that sort of jumped out at me, and made me wonder what that meant.

Thanks for the contributions. It looks like very useful software. Not sure why it was "split out" from the Linux Tools project ... but, from what I did understand of the description, looks like it would be very useful to Linux developers. (I assume that's the target audience? Or, is it more for administrators?).
The point of being an own project is that the features and framework are not limited to Linux and Linux developers. Yes, it started as Trace viewer LTTng traces. But now it's a framework to build trace visualization and analyzing tools all sorts of traces and logs coming from different targets and environments. We already support certain parser out of the box (LTTng CTF, libpcap, BTF, GDB trace) out of the box. Users can even define trace parsers on the fly using custom text/XML parsers wizards. Having a own project gives us more visibility and chance to grow the community even more.

Good luck, and thanks again for your contributions.
