Re: [tycho-dev] Eclipse Document Bundle Mojo
IMHO, this plug-in would be a valuable add-on for Tycho. We have a separate Git repository for these kind of "Extras": https://git.eclipse.org/r/tycho/org.eclipse.tycho.git There is no explicit documentation, but the setup is similar to the main repository (see http://wiki.eclipse.org/Tycho/Contributor_Guide )
The next step should be to open an enhancement request in Bugzilla to track the contribution.
Looking forward to the contribution :-)
