Re: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Better documentation forbuilding Eclipse projects
I would much rather point people to the CBI. In fact, I did make this
recommendation to the folks that I'm speaking with. I'll ask again. I'm
pretty sure that they need something now and so are compelled to look
into "classic" means of doing a build.

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?

Subject: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Better
documentation forbuilding Eclipse projects
I've been chatting with some folks from one of the Technology
about creating an automated build. AFAICT there is very little
documentation around that discusses how one goes about setting up an
automated build at eclipse.org.
I did find a page on the wiki  that seems to be a
reasonable start at
it, but it needs some serious love. I've started to give it some
attention, and thought that I'd invite others to provide
their own input.
Is anybody aware of better documentation that describes the build
process with PDE Build using build.eclipse.org with pack200, JAR
signing, and update-site creation support?
I realize that the Common Build Infrastructure work is ongoing in the
Dash project, but my sense is that there's still quite a lot
of work to
do before wholesale adoption can begin.
