=Modeling Project Structure=
 
=Modeling Project Structure=
  
The Modeling project currently comprises a set of so called container projects that in turn contain the various projects that act as hosts for actual modeling technologies.  This nested project structure is reflected in the Eclipse Foundation's [http://www.eclipse.org/projects/listofprojects.php#modeling tree-based overview] of the Modeling project. With a two exceptions, i.e., [http://eclipse.org/projects/project.php?id=modeling.amalgam Amalgamation] and [http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project.php?id=modeling.amp Agent Modeling Platform], the direct subprojects of the Modeling project don't directly host source-code repositories, but rather act as a mechanism for grouping and managing closely related projects. Each container project does however host a web-related artifact repository and as such each container project has a set of committers that must be managed via elections according to the [http://www.eclipse.org/projects/dev_process/development_process_2011.php#4_1_Committers Eclipse Development Process].  It has proven to be inconvenient to manage the set of committers on container projects independently of the union of the set of committers on each of the contained projects.

Another problem with the container-project structure is that provides little value for the end-consumers of Eclipse's modeling technologies.  The bewildering collection of Modeling projects are difficult to navigate and the website generally does a poor job helping the end consumer. Adding yet more projects to this mix, i.e., projects that directly contain solutions for nothing, only adds to this complexity.  Ultimately the end consumers don't care about project structure at all, they're looking for practical solutions to real-world problems.  They need a website organized according to their needs and interests, not one that's organized according to our internal project structure.

Over the past years, we've had a very liberal policy for hosting new Modeling projects.  On the plus side, that policy has lead to the rapid growth of the Modeling project.  On the negative side, it's increased the burden for end consumers who must navigate a bewildering collection of projects.  Compound that with the fact that we've done a very poor job of pruning the failed projects and keeping the web presence up-to-date and modern and you end up with something that reflects very poorly on the mature, well-supported, best-of-breed technologies hosted within the Modeling project.  To address this problem, we plan to terminate and archive all the projects that have failed to remain significantly active over the past years as outlined below.

The following Modeling projects will be collapsed, moving their subprojects up one level to be direct children of the [http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/ Modeling] project.  We'll need to think carefully about how to host replacement web pages or how to provide redirects to modernized replacement pages.

Modeling Project Structure

The Modeling project currently comprises a set of so called container projects that in turn contain the various projects that act as hosts for actual modeling technologies. This nested project structure is reflected in the Eclipse Foundation's tree-based overview of the Modeling project. With a three exceptions, i.e., Amalgamation, Agent Modeling Platform, and Presentation Modeling Framework, the direct subprojects of the Modeling project don't directly host source-code repositories, but rather act as a mechanism for grouping and managing closely related projects. Each container project does however host a web-related artifact repository and as such each container project has a set of committers that must be managed via elections according to the Eclipse Development Process. It has proven to be inconvenient to manage the set of committers on container projects independently of the union of the set of committers on each of the contained projects.

Another problem with the container-project structure is that provides little value for the end-consumers of Eclipse's modeling technologies. The bewildering collection of Modeling projects are difficult to navigate and the website generally does a poor job helping the end consumer. Adding yet more projects to this mix, i.e., projects that directly contain solutions for nothing, only adds to this complexity. Ultimately the end consumers don't care about project structure at all, they're looking for practical solutions to real-world problems. They need a website organized according to their needs and interests, not one that's organized according to our internal project structure.

As part of a major overhaul of the Modeling project's web presence, we plan to eliminate all the container projects as outlined below.

Over the past years, we've had a very liberal policy for hosting new Modeling projects. On the plus side, that policy has lead to the rapid growth of the Modeling project. On the negative side, it's increased the burden for end consumers who must navigate a bewildering collection of projects. Compound that with the fact that we've done a very poor job of pruning the failed projects and keeping the web presence up-to-date and modern and you end up with something that reflects very poorly on the mature, well-supported, best-of-breed technologies hosted within the Modeling project. To address this problem, we plan to terminate and archive all the projects that have failed to remain significantly active over the past years as outlined below.

 

Container Projects to be Collapsed

The following Modeling projects will be collapsed, moving their subprojects up one level to be direct children of the Modeling project. We'll need to think carefully about how to host replacement web pages or how to provide redirects to modernized replacement pages.

 

Eclipse Modeling Framework

The EMF container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

  • Landing page will be reused for the EMF Core project.
  • The eclipse.tools.emf forum will be preserved. It will generally be shared by the subprojects currently contained by EMF; unfortunately the qualified forum name reflects EMF's historical roots as part of the Eclipse Tools projects. The Eclipse Foundation is unable to migrate a forum to use a new name so starting a new forum loses the history for the old one which is unacceptable for a project with 10 years of history.
  • The emf-dev mailing list will be preserved. It will generally be shared by the subprojects currently contained by EMF.
  • Review how EMF's bugzilla product components can be reorganized.
  • Retire committers, i.e., Ed Merks.

 

Eclipse Modeling Framework Technology

The EMFT container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

 

Graphical Modeling Project

The GMP container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

  • Redirect the GMP Landing page to a TBD page managed/hosted by the Modeling project.
  • Review the contents of GMP's CVS repository; it appears to contain the source for GMF Notation and GMF Runtiime which I'd expect would be in git by now.
  • It appears that GMP has no forum to archive.
  • Archive the gmp-dev mailing list.
  • Review how GMP's bugzilla product components can be reorganized. Reconcile that with GMF Tooling's bugzilla product components.
  • Retire committers, i.e., Anthony Hunter.

 

Generative Modeling Tools

The GMT container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

 

Modeling Development Tools

The MDT container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

  • Redirect the MDT Landing page to a TBD page managed/hosted by the Modeling project.
  • Archive eclipse.modeling.mdt forum; that might be a problem because it's a container for several other newsgroups.
  • Archive mdt-dev mailing list.
  • MDT doesn't appear to have any bugzilla product for the project as a whole; that's a good thing.
  • Retire committers, i.e., Aleksandr Igdalov, Adolfo Sanchez-Barbudo Herrera, Chris Armstrong, Cedric Dumoulin, David Steinberg, David Carlson, Etienne Juliot, Ed Merks, Ed Willink, Hugo Bruneliere, Jerome Benois, James Bruck, Kenn Hussey, Laurent Goubet, Marcelo Paternostro, Michael Golubev, Nick Boldt, Patrick Tessier, Raphael Faudou, Sebastien Gerard, Sergey Gribovsky, Tom Digre, Tatiana Fesenko, Thibault Landre, Yann Tanguy, and Yves Yang.

 

Model-to-Model Transformation

The MMT container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

  • Eliminate the MMT Landing page (or redirect to a TBD page managed/hosted by the Modeling project).
  • Review MMT's CVS repository; the projects should be migrated to git.
  • Archive mmt-dev mailing list.
  • Archive eclipse.mmt newsgroup.
  • Eliminate MMT's bugzilla product.
  • Retire committers, i.e., Dennis Wagelaar, Ed Willink, Frederic Jouault, Sergey Boyko, and William Piers.

 

Model to Text

The M2T container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

  • Eliminate the M2T Landing page (or redirect to a TBD page managed/hosted by the Modeling project.
  • Review the contents of M2T's CVS repository; JET2 should be migrated to git. It appears that Xpand is already migrated.
  • Archive the eclipse.modeling.m2t forum.
  • Archive the m2t-dev mailing list.
  • Review how M2T's bugzilla product components can be reorganized.
  • Retire committers, i.e., Andre Arnold, Cedric Brun, Dennis Huebner, Jan Koehnlein, Laurent Goubet, Paul Elder, and Sven Efftinge.

 

PMF

PMF provides support for building data presentation applications. Active development and newsgroup traffic has been minimal since inception.

Activities:

  • Eliminate the PMF landing page.
  • Archive the contents of PMF's CVS repository.
  • Archive the eclipse.pmf forum.
  • Archive the pmf-def mailing list.
  • Delete PMF's bugzilla product.
  • Retire committers, i.e., Jim Van Dam, Olivier Moises, Thomas Guiu, and Yves YANG.

Project terminated. Archival tracked by Bug 395175.

Textual Modeling Framework

The TMF container project will be eliminated.

Activities:

  • Eliminate TMF's Landing page or redirect to Xtext.
  • TMF's CVS repository contains the source for Xtext; does it need to be reorganized or renamed? Xtext is already migrated to git.
  • Is there a tmf-dev mailing list?
  • The org.eclipse.tmf forum is used for Xtext; it should be kept.
  • Review how TMF's bugzilla product components can be reorganized.
  • Retire committers? Given that the TMF repo is used for Xtext, the only active project left in this container, I think there's no one left to retire.

TMF Termination is tracked by Bug 395197.

Xtext move from modeling.tmf.xtext to modeling.xtext is tracked by Bug 395195.
