Moving the project under Tools top-level project

  • We propose to move the project from the Web Tools top-level project into the Tools top-level project. The move will stir up visibility to the Ajax tools. The Tools top-level project is also a natural place for tooling projects such as PHP Development Tools (PDT), AJDT, C/C++ Tools.
  • All four attendees voted +1
