Where Should Equinox Components Go?

The CVS components for the eclipse.equinox sub-project use the following folder layout:

 org.eclipse.equinox/<component-name>/bundles/<bundle-project-name>
 org.eclipse.equinox/<component-name>/features/<feature-project-name>

Where component-name is the same name used for the bugzilla component and Unix group. For example, p2, security, framework, bundles etc. and bundle-project-name is the bundle symbolic name for the bundle project and feature-project-name is the symbolic name of the feature. This way each component is grouped under one directory. The bundles directory is intended to separate the actual bundle projects from other content associated with the component. For example, we may want a docs folder to place documents about the component and a features to contain the features associated with a component. So the overall structure looks something like this:

 org.eclipse.equinox/
                    p2/
                       bundles/
                              org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.optimizers
                              org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.processors
                              org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository
                              org.eclipse.equinox.p2.console
                             ...
                       features/
                       docs/
                    security/
                       bundles/
                              org.eclipse.equinox.security
                              org.eclipse.equinox.security.tests
                              org.eclipse.equinox.security.ui
                              org.eclipse.equinox.security.win32.x86
                       features/
                       docs/

Since the creation of the top-level RT project, Equinox has lived in the RT repo at /cvsroot/rt/org.eclipse.equinox. Prior to the creation of RT, Equinox was found in the Eclipse Project repository at /cvsroot/eclipse/org.eclipse.equinox.
