Hi Eclipsers,

GDrive ("all your data online") is a long awaited Google-project.
Look here:
http://blogs.zdnet.com/Google/index.php?p=357

Google uses Eclipse-RCP-technology for GDrive (!!)
There's SWT-DLL. Apparently the SWT-Jar is
included in program.jar.

Unfortunately GDrive isn't public at the moment.
I am very interested in GDrive which btw is similar to
Novell's (another Eclipse-boardmember) iFolder-technology.
iFolder uses .NET and Mono.

Considering that Google uses open technology for GDrive
(Eclipse and SqlLite) I would like to see an Eclipse-project
for GDrive (or something like that) say using Eclipse-technology for
synchronizing local PC's with an online-backup. But I'm not in the position
to ask Google whatever :-) and btw Mylar is really cool!

Sidenote:
There should be something like an eclipse.advocacy or
eclipse.discussion / coffeehouse / off-the-ramp newsgroup imho.
I hope that eclipse.foundation is the appropriate place
for posting the that FYI
