Here’s one of my favorite graphs to look at every year…
Eclipse Indigo is 62 projects and 46 million lines of code this year… that’s a lot of coordination!
Please note, the way of counting have changed between Helios and Indigo: all in all there is a plus of only 2 projects: 11 joined, 9 left the release train (see list of Helios projects: EMF is counted twice, so there are 60 Helios projects compared to 62 in Indigo)
More projects != better. What’s the use of Eclipse projects if the documentation is lacking or sub-standard or if end users are rapidly moving away from Java and Eclipse?
