Explanation of the Project Table
All work at Eclipse is done in sub-projects and components organized under top-level projects. The top-level projects are managed by PMCs (project management committees).
While each Eclipse Project concentrates on a different technical area, there are many common elements to the management across all the projects. For example, each project has a newsgroup for user discussions and a mailing list for developer discussions. Each project has a source code repository (Git or SVN) and a bug tracking system (Bugzilla).
The projects table on the Projects page is populated from the meta-data that the projects provide about the location of their various development resources. Missing resources in the table are caused by either the project not providing the meta-data, or the project not having an instance of that resource.
The projects table columns are:
- Name - the official name of the project
- Project Information Page - all the standard information about this project in one standard format web page; project goals, newsgroups, mailing lists, releases, downloads, activity, etc.
- Phase (Project Phase) - the project's phase in the development lifecycle. The major phases are:
- Home - the eclipse.org home web page for the project
- Forum - the project's forum for user discussions.
- Ma (Mailing List) - the project's mailing list(s) for developer discussions
- Wiki - the project's main wiki page
- IP (Project IP Log) - the project's current Intellectual Property Traceability Log. explain...
For Project Leads
If the project table does not show all of your project's resources, please make sure that your project meta-data is correct.
