|[cbi-dev] Update for Dec. 20|
Hi Everyone, A quick update to keep you informed.Igor is helping me sort out an issue I've found while reproducing the prototype build. It is my hope that once we get past it (and any others lurking) that I'll have been able to build the Eclipse Platform here at the Foundation using maven. It's impressively simple to run.
At this time, I believe it should be the case that we can take the output of this build, a bunch of p2 repositories, and feed it into EPP. This is next on the list to try and figure out.
Our prototype environment is essentially a temporary fork of the platform while we figure things out. If you're interested in access to it, please contact me and we'll figure out what we can do and how. We'd welcome more eyes looking at things and kicking the system.
The first cut at distributing the binaries will likely be p2 repositories hosted on downloads.eclipse.org. There seems to be solid agreement that we should get maven.eclipse.org going.
A quick look at Dash looks like there's some good stuff happening and strong synergies with the CBI initiative, thanks Paul! We're still figuring out the business model for LTS which is pulling CBI forward. As things progress the linkages/sharing between CBI & other initiatives will become more clear.
