Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] [ide-dev] concrete action item - menu contribution

IMO, the first step to having consistent menus is having a consistent and well-documented set of criteria for inclusion in each menu. Right now, no such set of criteria has been published.

I tried to start the process of documenting the function of menu on the main menubar here:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=94196

...perhaps if we could ratify this (or something like it) as an official set of UI guidelines, it would then be possible to police plugins for conformance to those guidelines.

third party isnÂt responsive? Is there a mechanism we can put in place
that we can use to filter stray menu contributions?
