The Eclipse Foundation Is Transitioning to Europe

On May 12, we announced [link]the Eclipse Foundation is establishing itself as a European organization based in Brussels, Belgium[link]. The transition is expected to be legally finalized in July, and will help us build on our recent international growth and our strength in Europe.

In the short term, the move has no impact on committers and contributors. It’s business as usual. By this summer, we expect to have a new GitLab-based forge that’s physically hosted in Europe and available for any projects that would like to use it.

As we expand our presence in Europe, we’ll share details about any changes to our operations with our committers and contributors before they’re implemented.
