Thanks David. I have/had two concerns:|
(1) Whether this was a "project" or a "component". There are many ways to make this decisions, so the currently best guideline is "does it release separately?" yes = project, no = component. Components do not need creation reviews.
(2) "Significant new efforts" need to be announced to the Eclipse membership in some way. Reviews (such as Creation Reviews) are a good way to do this for new projects - new projects being, by definition, significant new efforts. We don't have a good mechanism for this kind of announcement (yet) for significant new components, but the Board has made it clear that it's necessary. Perhaps something in your project plan? (P.S. discussing on the dev and pmc lists are not considered announcements.)
So if you all (PMC) are confident that it's a component, if you could just make the significant new effort public, that would be fine.
> Bjorn, does this adequately account for your concerns? Or are you saying that even as a component under WTP it should have a creation review?
