RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] are we doing the "Callisto Time Warp"?

"The major problem [with time travel] is simply one of grammar, and the main work to consult in this matter is Dr. Dan Streetmentioner's Time Traveler's Handbook of 1001 Tense Formations. It will tell you, for instance, how to describe something that was about to happen to you in the past before you avoided it by time-jumping forward two days in order to avoid it. The event will be descibed differently according to whether you are talking about it from the standpoint of your own natural time, from a time in the further future, or a time in the further past and is futher complicated by the possibility of conducting conversations while you are actually traveling from one time to another with the intention of becoming your own mother or father."

Anyone else notice the top item in the Eclipse News section of the main web page?




“The Eclipse Foundation today announced the release of 10 Eclipse open source projects.”


At least there’s not a *link* to the download yet, but… isn’t this jumping the gun a bit? The countdown timer still correctly shows the “In 4 Days” proclamation of a *future* release.


This makes me a bit nervous… someone tells me this is the correct way to advertise (in advance) Callisto if I’m being overly cautious!
