The equinox provisioning effort now has a name

This afternoon team meeting gave the "equinox provisioning effort" the cool snappy name of

P2

Yes, you read it right the letter P, then the number 2. It can stands for the followings in no particular order:
- Provisioning Platform
- Provisioning Partout (partout is the french word for everywhere)
- Pascal's Provisioning (hey, why not? We do have the "Ed Merks Framework")
- Provisioning, the 2nd generation

The bundles and packages will be renamed right after M2 has been delivered.

The motivations behind this renaming can be found at http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_Provisioning_Naming.

When I was a wee lad at U(W), we got P**5 points.

You could raise the bar here with P**6:
