I'm writing another book on Eclipse and want to put in a URL for the
"official" Eclipse news feed aggregator site, something that will be
stable for at least a couple years while the book is in print.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=87159 requests this site
and suggests the address "http://planet.eclipse.org". The eclipse.org
webmaster Denis Roy indicated he'd look into it in May. Meanwhile Gunnar
Wagenknecht opened http://planet-eclipse.org and also I registered
http://eclipseplanet.org and a few variations on that theme that
currently forward to Gunnar's site (I offered to transfer those to the
Foundation but haven't heard back yet). The eclipse.org community web
site currently shows the eclipseplanet.org URL.

Problem is, I have a dealine in a little over a week and I need to know
what the officially supported URL will be by the time the book is in
print later this year. Mike or Denis or someone, can you tell me? Thanks.

Ed,

I would prefer www.planeteclipse.org. I'd like to keep it separate from
the "official" .eclipse.org domain. I believe this is one of the domains
that you own, and I'm sure the Foundation would be happy to take it off
your hands.

Please e-mail me directly when you get a chance so we can arrange to
transfer the domain. I'll set up the Planet software on the servers
next week. The only showstopper would be that it doesn't behave in a
load-balanced environment.

Thanks,

Denis

Will do. I doubt the lack of load balancing will be an issue since the
traffic is mostly text, and therefore small.

Every new service and application I install on eclipse.org needs to be
fault-tolerant and scalable... That means load balanced or clustered.
The community doesn't want to see these things go down, and neither do I =)

But so far nothing web-based has been an issue for this type of environment.

Just to close out this thread, with little fanfare Denis Roy has created
the official Planet Eclipse, and all related domain names have been
turned over to the Foundation. I'd just like to thank Denis for setting
this up and also Gunnar Wagenknecht for creating the initial prototype
and helping Denis with the scripts.

The "official" URL is:

==> http://planeteclipse.org <==

If you have an Eclipse related blog or section of a blog, be sure to use
the link provided to have it included on Planet Eclipse. You don't have
to be a committer or employee of a Foundation member or anything like
that, just share an enthusiasm for Eclipse and the Eclipse community.
