How popular is this


Should it really be a feature


  • NetBeans was
  • Likely to attract new users. How?
    • Strongest point for being a feature
    • First to ship IDEA
    • Pleasing and attracting Java community with IDEA as well as stack it builds on, Groovy
  • Assuring open-sourcing closed stuff is a good idea, helping IDEA grow community
  • Just a bunch of packages?
    • Basically, every feature lives in a packages
    • Substantial packaging work done on dependencies, first to ship them (others follow, openSUSE)

Reviewing packages

The dependent packages are/will be organized in tree of dependencies whose root will be the main intellij-idea package. There's no blocker bug yet. Is it common, useful to have one?
