Eclipse BugDay Provisioned?

Just a reminder that the latest installment of Eclipse’s BugDay is this Friday.

I have some good news for people getting started as our kind friends at Innoopract have setup some easy profiles using their cool Yoxos On Demand Eclipse Distro service. They are *beta-testing* this type of functionality to see what type of reception it gets from the community. What do profiles mean in this case? Well, a profile will give you everything you need to get started like plugins, mylyn queries for the bugs and triage as well as a PSF.

I encourage other committers to get involved with bugday if they have the time. Just today I helped someone on IRC with a simple bug that never contributed anything to Eclipse. In this process he learned about working with Eclipse’s repository, the importance of self-hosting and how to use Mylyn. I know I could’ve just committed the simple fix myself, but taking someone through the process has value as it’s a good Eclipse community building exercise.

Take care!

    Chris,

    I’ve been wanting to get involved in the eclipse community by giving something back. But frankly it is intimidating. I would think there are lots more like me out there who have benefited from eclipse and would like to give back but are may not know how to get started.

    Can I suggest a webinar on how one would go about contributing to eclipse as a committer. I think that would go a long way in helping us newbies.

    This sounds like a really great idea. Provisioning for Eclipse Bugday is a very important story. I always need to spend some time to setup a suitable IDE for bugday.

    However, the service seems to be unavailable today. As soon as I try to download any profile, I get an “service not available” warning.

    Sigh. I’ll have to setup my PDE workbench manually.

    Hi Peter,

    Yesterday we changed a server configuration which caused a problem not visible from within our own network.

    We feel very sorry about it. We fixed the issue and the service should be working now.
