I wanted to share with you this heads up from the PTP project about its future and that there may be some possibile impacts on CDT as CDT currently uses org.eclipse.remote in our tagrrt platform as provided by the PTP project.
If you have any suggestions or proposals on a way forward on this topic, please join PTP-dev mailing list and contribute to the conversation.

Subject: [ptp-dev] Withdrawal from SimRel
To: Parallel Tools Platform general developers <ptp-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx
The Eclipse Foundation are planning to remove ssh access to the build server, something we’ve been using for the last 15 years for our release process. Since the Foundation does not provide any standard mechanism for managing project releases, individual projects have had to develop their own processes. The PTP release process, which has been entirely adequate until now, requires some manual commands in order to verify the repository is valid and make it available. Without ssh access, we will need to develop a completely new release process that is driven from scripts that are run via Jenkins jobs. Currently there are no resources available to do this, and the Foundation has not offered any assistance or indication that they are intending to provide a standard release mechanism for projects to use. As a consequence PTP will need to withdraw from the SimRel and remove the Eclipse IDE for Scientific Computing from the downloads page. Unless I hear anything to the contrary, I plan to inform them of this at the end of the week.
