Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Sharing information / documents via

There is no plan. Frankly, we've been just using the tools that we have available. In the case of Google Docs, collaboration is the killer feature.

Google Docs are a useful means of doing initial collaboration. IMHO, independent of any access issues, management of documents becomes pretty unwieldy pretty quickly. My personal practice is to use Google Docs for that initial rapid-paced collaboration and then move content into Asciidoc+Git for ongoing development and maintenance (e.g. the Eclipse Foundation Specification Process). This is not official Eclipse Foundation policy. It's also not a good solution for non-technical collaborators.

I'm not quite sure what channel is the right channel to discuss options. Perhaps you can open a bug against Community and we can start there.

Hi all,

just a (hopefully) quick question: are there any plans on moving away from sharing information (e.g. links to documents on various mailing lists) via Google-Docs? For us (Baloise) and probably others (behind corporate proxies that block content / domains like these) it‘s not possible accessing these documents / information (at work) at all.

It would be helpful getting some feedback whether others also face this issue and if so how you handle it for now.

It‘d also be nice having something @eclipse that allows sharing these documents!

Thanks in advance and with best regards,
