Scripting is about easy customization, and automation of common workflows.
While most editors, IDEs and office tools support some sort of scripting, there is no common approach at Eclipse. Some projects exist but it's very fragmented. This effort is about getting together and unifying the efforts, such that we all get to a better solution.
Success Statement: Provide an installable scripting framework from Eclipse.org which satisfies most needs, such that fragmented efforts are united again.
