Hi,

Unit-API (org.unitsofmeasurement) has been approved for Orbit by Legal and
IP staff a while ago.
How to actually get the library files into Orbit now?

Thanks,
Werner

As a first step, I'd suggest you open a bug in the Orbit section of
Tools (be sure to give CQ number)

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Orbit


Then, you either have to convince an Orbit committer to commit it for
you, or become a committer yourself. Not sure what project this is for,
but you might check if your project (or parent project) has any Orbit
committers already.

If you'd like to become a committer to Orbit yourself, you can initiate
that process by sending a note to orbit-dev list
(orbit-dev@xxxxxxxx), stating you'd like to be a committer, which
bundles you'd like to contribute and maintain, and which project you are
already a committer on. We have to go through the normal "nominate and
vote" process, but the criteria are different than most projects ... you
mostly just have to already be a committer on another Eclipse project
and state your willingness to contribute and maintain one or more bundles.

Much "how to" info on the mechanics of putting a bundle into Orbit is at
the Orbit Wiki,
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Category:Orbit
in particular,
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Orbit/Adding_Bundles_to_Orbit

Thanks,

Thanks, I'll raise that request just now.

According to the committers Portal I should already be Orbit committer, too.
Otherwise, both mentors seem rather active in Orbit, too.

Actually it looks like there's been one already:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=369156

I updated the CQ URL with the one that cofirms the actual approval
(https://dev.eclipse.org/ipzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6720) and added some
META-INF details other similar tickets contain.

If I have the necessary credentials, I'd be more than happy to upload it to
the CVS repository myself.
