Re: [eclipse-scripting-dev] EScriptMonkey birth

Hi John,


First of all thank you for your advice. What you have suggested would be perfect for us because it will really help us through the IP process. However, we have some issues that might make this solution impossible:

1.       After some technical discussions we decided to use a new project which is the fusion of Eclipse Monkey et EScript as a starting point. EScrit is not a an eclipse project so it integrates some code from non eclipse committers.

2.       In the new project we want to embed some interpreters such as Jython. The Jython project is under the Python Software License ( and I am not sure whether we can directly integrate it in eclipse. We already discussed it with Sharon Corbett which should give us a hint to know whether it is possible and how to do it.

3.       All the committers are not already Eclipse committers so I do not know if their work can be directly integrated.


If those points do not appear to you as blocking points, I would be glad to migrate all the code to a E4 repository. We can also think of a way to solve them.

I urge you to be careful about creating a GitHub project as the starting point for this investigation. If your starting point is code from existing Eclipse projects, then it is already IP clean code. If you take it outside, and make/accept contributions there, then it will become a complicated process to get that accepted back within Eclipse at a later date. I think we can fairly quickly create you a git repository in e4 to do some early investigation if you are interested. That way the IP provenance stays clean and it doesn't become a roadblock later on. If you are interested in this approach I can help you through this process.

Note the Eclipse Foundation is starting to work on infrastructure to enable Eclipse projects to be hosted directly on GitHub [1]. That initiative is still being rolled out but it could be a potential home for the work in the future if/when it becomes a separate Eclipse project down the road.

Hi all,
This email aim to notify interested parties that a new Github has been created in order to host the work of merging EScript and Eclipse monkey :
