I am Manoj from the Eclipse Java Development Tools (JDT) and from Eclipse
JDT Dev, we have a couple of clarifications regarding the incubation
Mandatory or Optional: We understand that when an incubation feature is
included in a release, it should be of production quality. However, do
we, as spec/compiler implementers have the freedom to omit an incubation
feature? In Other words, would we be termed non-compliant if we do not
implement a particular incubation feature?
Timeline: How much minimum time (in weeks/months) before the release
can we expect a feature to be categorized as incubation? If it depends
on the feature, what could be a ballpark estimate?
