Eclipse.org and GitHub

I’m happy to announce we finally setup mirroring of eclipse.org repositories on GitHub.

I think this is an important step to making the eclipse.org codebase more accessible for people to fork and contribute changes. If you’re an eclipse.org project accepting changes from someone on GitHub, please check the official policy on handling Git contributions. If you’re an eclipse.org project and you don’t see yourself on the mirrored repository list at GitHub, you have to:

  • First move to Git if you haven’t already at eclipse.org
  • If you’re on Git already and don’t see your self on the list, file a bug against Community->Git

If you need more information, please check out the wiki for more information about GitHub. I also want to thank Wayne Beaton for his portal metadata wrangling and Ketan Padegaonkar for helping out with this effort.

Enjoy!

    I am so glad this isn’t an April Fool’s joke :) I was worried when I first saw it.

    Hah, it’s not a joke… bad timing on my part at least to announce it on the 1st… but literally that’s when everything came together :)
