Hey Folks. I'd really like to get this series properly bootstrapped.
Here is the entry that I'd like to send out tomorrow unless somebody has
any issue with it.
Links to non-eclipse.org content
Occasionally, you may want or need to provide links to external content
 from your project website. Several projects do this today: it's an
excellent way to provide more information for your project, and help to
make your project become part of the community. Some projects link to
websites that showcase how the project's code is being used by the
community, some to FAQs and other sources of information.
The content on the Eclipse website and wiki is subject to the Eclipse
consideration of this, it is critical that your project's consumers are
made explicitly aware of where the Eclipse project's website ends and
the third-party site begins.
You can provide links from your Eclipse project's web site to external
resources (e.g. binaries, code, etc.), provided that:
1. There is some adequate disclaimers that make it clear that
although this is a "related link" that this is not Eclipse content.
2. The link to the existing code is not just be a direct link to
content. It has to be a link to a download page on the external site.
3. The link to their download page needs to be such that it brings up
an entirely new browser so that it is made even more apparent to the
user that they are leaving the eclipse.org website.
