|[wtp-incubator-dev] Move Vex to Mylyn Docs|
Hi WTP Incubator and Mylyn Docs developers,Some month ago there was a proposal to move Vex out of the WTP incubator into the Mylyn Docs project: https://bugs.eclipse.org/328390
The Visual Editor for XML (Vex) is an WYSIWYM(ean) editor for XML documents, i.e. text documents plus some semantics. Because the main purpose of Vex is not to edit configuration files or deployment descriptors etc. or not to edit web pages (although you could use XHTML as your underlying schema) but to edit documentation, e.g. DITA and DocBook files. So we thought Vex would much better fit into the Mylyn Docs project than in the Web Tools Platform.
You can find more information about Vex in the wiki: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Vex
Since all the restructuring and the Indigo release is done, we would start the move with a little introduction of the project and the committers. There are currently four:
- David Carver http://intellectualcramps.wordpress.com - Igor Campista http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/+/Lino+campista/+/ - Holger Voormann http://eclipsehowl.wordpress.com - and me Florian Thienelwhich are working only in their free time (unfortunately, no company involved yet). Vex is still in incubation and we are still working on some of the basic features.
So far so good: we suggest to move Vex from o.e.wst.xml.vex(.*) to o.e.mylyn.vex(.*). The code should go from <http://git.eclipse.org/c/webtools/org.eclipse.webtools.incubator.git/> to http://git.eclipse.org/c/mylyn/org.eclipse.mylyn.docs.git/, but there needs also some restructuring done to match the directory structure of Mylyn.
What do you think? Best Regards, Florian
