Subject Re: draft of message to derby-user concerning the future of the Eclipse plugins

Hi Rick:
     Will it be good to estimate the time it might need to build the plugin and host them
somewhere else?

plugin and a ui/doc plugin. The Derby developers have come to the conclusion that these plugin
artifacts fall outside the scope of our charter, which explictly excludes IDE and GUI work:

would like to get out of the business of producing these plugins. We plan to build them for
one more maintenance release, 10.8.2: http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbyTenEightTwoRelease
After that, we need to find some other way to support people who develop Derby-powered applications
with Eclipse.
