Have you looked at http://polarsys.org/downloads/ ? It is already there, and the 3p project can copy files into the 3p directory (/home/httpd/downloads/3p) and they will be available from that URL.We consider 3P project is like EPP, so we expect to create a page looking like: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
The current eclipse.org "main downloads page" is PHP. If you and Pierre list the requirements, we'll have a better idea how to create it.So the question Pierre and I have is: * How to structure the page. simple HTML? PHP? a drupal page?
Chris can probably discuss how the EPP packages are listed on the Eclipse.org downloads page.* How do we write/generate the list of downloads. I imagine that for EPP, there is a generation based on metadata.
Please exercise caution when linking to Hudson. Hudson doesn't handle large amounts of anonymous traffic very well, so if the projects become very popular, it will be a problem.* How do we link to Hudson results?
Most projects will grab the Hudson results (statically) as part of their publishing process to avoid straining Hudson.
It took years for Eclipse.org to need a separate archive space. For now, a simple "older versions" page can be created.* How do we integrate links to old versions?
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have follow-up questions.
