Purpose of This Page

The Development Process 2006 Revision page was becoming a little difficult to read with conversations and old comments interspersed with the text, thus I moved some of the old comments here while leaving a summary on the main page.

At the same time, I suggest that comments that conversations be done on the eclipse.foundation newsgroup, again with a summary placed into the wiki.

Requirements 1

The comments below all refer to a previous version of the Requirements section where I had three kinds of criteria: Required, Recommend, and Suggested. I took their advice and changed to two more clearly separate names. --Bjorn Freeman-Benson
How do you get "M" out of Recommended? When I saw "M" I thought "Must". I Mecommend that you pick three words with unique first letters. --Ed Burnette
What's the difference between recommended and suggested? Recommended practices are ones that have been observed to be beneficial for a long time; suggested practices are ones we believe are helpful but haven't been practiced for a long time and so we're not as confident? Do we need two separate categories - recommended and suggested? Perhaps, Requirements and Guidelines are more meaningful categories instead of Required, Recommended and Suggested. -- Anurag Gupta

I agree with Ed and Anurag: the difference between "Recommended" and "Suggested" isn't obvious and using "M" for "Recommended" isn't descriptive. --Dani 09:17, 13 October 2006 (EDT)

How about Mandatory, Strongly Recommended / Suggested, Complementary, or else Must Do, Should Do, Could Do? --nickb 14:07, 18 October 2006 (EDT)

You all are right - I don't know what I was thinking. Let's go with Requirements and Guidelines. --Bjorn Freeman-Benson

Structure and Organization 2

The comments below suggest adding a hyperlink. I took their advice . --Bjorn Freeman-Benson
Add a hyperlink to Bylaws section VII. -- Anurag Gupta
Unfortunately, the Bylaws is a PDF file, so the best I can do (and have now done) is a link to the Bylaws. You'll have to get to section VII yourself. --Bjorn Freeman-Benson
Hey, Bjorn... Let me teach an old dog a new trick! --Rich Main
Thanks, Rich, I didn't know that worked. -- Bjorn Freeman-Benson
