CQ issue: LGPL content distributed with Electron

What is the value that Theia brings in the local scenario in comparison to VSCode?

  1. Theia has a more flexible extension model (i.e. you can build white-labeled products and more powerful tools)
  2. Theia is open-source governed
  3. Theia runs in browsers, i.e. you can do single-sourcing for developer tools that should run both on desktop and in browsers.

Posted that on the CQ as well.

FYI, our explanation was good enough. We were asked if we wanted to proceed with going to the Eclipse Foundation board to request approval to use Electron, and answered “yes”.

Update: Our Electron CQ was approved! Details here: https://dev.eclipse.org/ipzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=19253
