So I couldn't figure out how to write the extension points that I was stuck on yesterday so I cried to my mentor, Markus, for help and he told me to go to the #eclipse-soc channel to discuss. About an hour later, we'd decided on a name change for the project (from eclipse-autoconf to org.eclipse.discovery), made a few architectural changes (like not using extension points. I'm still not sure about that), decided on a few constraints (using Java 1.3 instead of Java 5), and I was given 5 documents to read before making any further changes to my code. I am going to have Eclipse dripping out my ears by the end of this Summer, no doubt (but I'm still excited, I won't lie). You can read the meeting logs here. The guys in #eclipse-soc are hilarious.
