Eclipse Community Bulletin Infrastructure Migration

I am very pleased to announce that we are making progress towards migrating the website to a new location managed directly by the Eclipse Foundation. We want to make sure that everyone is aware of the key dates, because there could be impacts on the site's availability as we move. We currently do not have firm projections for downtime. We will provide advance notice of any outages on our home page.

We are planning on moving in two phases. The first move will relocate our download servers. This will also allow us to test the new hosting site and its bandwidth. It also will allow for the least impact on the community, because downloads will continue to be available from our mirrors. In the second phase we will move the remaining servers, including our HTML content, mailing lists, newsgroups, CVS and Bugzilla.

Please read the FAQ for more information. Other questions can be directed to

Key Dates:

Saturday, October 16, 2004 - move download servers
Saturday, October 30, 2004 - move all remaining servers
