Re: [eclipse-dev] official platform requirements

Here's a document on the process (It's a bit out of date).  In addition to contributing the SWT fragment, you need to compile the launcher fragment and contribute it.

What ws-os-arch platform are you interested in contributing?  Googling you, I assume FreeBSD?

To be honest, we haven't had success in the past with community contributions of new platforms.  It seems like people make the initial contribution and then decide not to update it which causes problems for the build because the fragments become out of sync and compile errors result.  So I must emphasize that contributing a new platform is a ongoing compiling, testing and bug triaging commitment :-)  Let me know how if you have any questions on getting started.

What are the requirements for a platform to become an official/supported Eclipse
target platform?  Would that be some specific resources and/or some code/scripts?

I hope that my question is appropriate for this list.
I couldn't find any answer to this question through web search.

Thank you.
