Technology/Subproject Termination Review 2011


This page is moderated by the Technology PMC and EMO.

Projects

The following Technology projects will be terminated and archived.

Athena

Athena is actually a component of Dash in the classic EDP sense; With the EDP changes introduced in 2008, Athena became a defacto project. Athena provides a great service to assist Eclipse projects with building. However, the intent was for Athena to be bridge technology and newer technologies, such as Tycho are maturing to the point where many projects have already moved away from Athena. Development has ceased, and Athena-related traffic on the various communication forums has been non-existent.

Activities:

  • Update wiki pages to indicate that project is archived
  • Archive /cvsroot/technology/org.eclipse.dash/athena
  • Archive|Remove /opt/public/cbi/
    • This directory seems to primarily contain code from other projects, and so can probably be removed (please confirm)
  • Archive|Remove /home/data/httpd/download.eclipse.org/athena
    • This directory seems to primarily contain code from other projects, and so can probably be removed (please confirm)
  • Retire committers

Faceted Project Framework

Faceted Project Framework was created in an attempt to make facets technology that was developed in WTP more accessible to other Eclipse projects. The project failed, due in part to lack of cooperation from WTP. The original framework continues to be in active use at its original location in WTP. Development on the branch associated with this separate project has ceased a while ago.

Activities:

  • Archive /cvsroot/technology/org.eclipse.fproj
  • Move any open bugs in "Technology/Faceted Project Framework" to "WebTools/WTP Common Tools/Faceted Project Framework".
