The Eclipse Platform has always been well known about it's technical qualities.
It's a robust platform you can build your apps on. Many projects are providing
good code consistency and quality through unit testing, use of findbugs,
checkstyle or even emma. 

Wouldn't it be great for consumers, and projects, if the reports about those
tools would be available on an eclipse web page ? Just like the dash which is
about tracking activity but here for unit tests and code consistency. Project
already using those tools would then communicate this "good citizenship" while
projets not already using them would 

The sonar project (open source) provides tooling to gather this information
during the build and present them in a comprehensive way

Two options : either use the nemo community based website to publish these
builds, or have an eclipse in-house instance hooked with our hudson, as more
and more projects are moving to the CBI it makes sense to start that effort

The sonar team offered to help in setting up our own instance.

I personally tend to prefer the "in-house" solution as it's easier to publicize
and need less effort for the projects.

That said I don't know what's the best way to handle such a request and
was thinking in starting the discussion here, so that I can collect your
opinions. I guess if the AC council thinks that's a valuable move I'll
ping some board representatives.

What do you think ?
