Subject Re: thoughts on eclipse update site and Uima v3
Date Fri, 12 Jan 2018 16:54:29 GMT
I realize I left something out. For the uimaj-j (the new JCas oriented version
of uima, also known as uimaj-v3), eclipse plugins depending on this should be in
a separate Eclipse Composite update site.

Following the conventions in the other naming note posted to the dev list, we
would have:

eclipseUpdateSite  <- composite site



or something like that.
