As a reminder, our Platform final RC3
build will be Wednesday 5/27 and final RC4 build (final for the Mars release)
is scheduled for Wednesday 6/3. (i.e. time is about up).

Really? You don't remember why? This
is for the "Mac App" layout, that p2 has implemented. It was
important to the Eclipse Foundation to see this happen for Mars ... so
... that makes it important to us in the Platform.
As always, let me know if I can help
in some way.

Plan for 0.23.0 release?
yes M7/RC... for equinox,p2,JDT would be fine with
BTW we've used eclipse milestones for Tycho releases several times
in the past already.
Just in case there is really a need for 0.23.1 after Mars final, we can
do it using Mars final binaries.
It's a chicken-egg problem. If we wait for Mars final before doing a release,
eclipse platform will have released with a SNAPSHOT version of Tycho i.e.
build not reproducible (and this is esp. bad in the context of long term
support). OTOH once M7 or whatever we used for 0.23.0 is gone, the Tycho
release build itself is also no longer reproducible.
Having to choose between the two I find it easier to release Tycho earlier,
given the size and complexity of the eclipse platform build compared to
the Tycho build.
Of course ideally eclipse platform would not be using Tycho SNAPSHOTs in
the first place so this problem wouldn't exist, but they had to go on SNAPSHOT
for good reasons I assume.
