RE: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Better documentation forbuilding Eclipse projects
I haven't talked to Nick recently how far the CBI is, but
guiding folks to some manual setup of an automated build
right now seems odd given that CBI is just round the corner.
I'd think it would be wiser to direct project which need
some automated build setup NOW to get in touch with Nick
or Denis, and have them be guinea pigs for CBI... provided
that Nick, Denis or perhaps somebody else would be OK with
helping fresh adopters on CBI ?
Wayne: what is the number of projects that you anticipate
being in need of some automated builds in the near future?
Nick: would it be OK for you to tell interested parties
how to contact the CBI masters, instead of investing time
and energy now in updating the Builder docs on the Wiki?
