EPP Project Plan

Europa Timeframe

Within the Europa timeframe the EPP will

  • define initial packages for the Eclipse download page
  • build these packages for Windows, Linux-GTK, MacOSX-Carbon
  • building packages depends on working update sites; therefore EPP will run its builds when the Europa build status is green; package updates will be available for release candidates about one day after its release (see Europa wiki page)

Ganymede Timeframe

  • Create a package eco system where package maintainer can add new packages.
  • Integrate the EPP Usaged Data Collector in all packages.
  • Deliver milestone builds and nightly build based on the Ganymede Update Site in time.
  • Set up an automated build process and integrate it with the Ganymatic build.
