[] Invite Colleagues to Access Orion Demo Server


As previously mentioned, the Eclipse Foundation is hosting an Orion demo server to showcase the features and capabilities of Orion.   All Eclipse committers have access to the server; the access instructions are below.  Please feel free to try out Orion and provide feedback to the Orion team.

We would also like to make it possible for each committer to invite up to 5 people to access the Orion server.   Please use the following instructions to invite your colleages:

1. Send an e-mail to orion_invite@xxxxxxxxxxx.   In the body of the e-mail include on separate lines the e-mail address of each invitee.  Please only invite 5 people to receive invitations.
2. You will receive a confirmation that accounts have been created.
3. Each invitee will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to access and use Orion.

More information about Orion can be found at, including Getting Started instructions. 

We are also organizing an Orion planning meeting on March 17-18 in Palo Alto, CA.   If you are interested in the participating in this meeting, please let me know.

Dear Committers,

As you may have heard we have recently launched Orion, a new initiative to create a platform for web development tools.  Mike Milinkovich wrote an introductory blog post about Orion and more detailed technical information can be found at

To allow people to see Orion in action, we are hosting a private Orion demo server.  Today, we would like to extend an invitation to all Eclipse committers to try out the Orion demo server.   The following will provide you access:

Server URL:
Username: <eclipse committer e-mail address> 
Password: orion2011 

[Note: username and password are case sensitive.   Everyone has the same password but at a later date we will you to change your password.]

This is a demo server of Orion that allows you to test out the features.   We would ask you to please not save real work on the server, since we will periodically cleanup and remove all user files.  Information on how to use the Orion server is available at

As open source committers, you know how important early feedback and participation can be for a project.  Therefore, I'd ask that you please take that time to explore Orion and provide some feedback to the development team on the Orion mailing list.

Right now the Orion demo server is by invitation only.  In a couple of weeks we intended to allow Eclipse committers to invite their colleagues to have access to the server.   In the meantime, we ask that you please not share your username and password.

Thanks for your interest.  We are excited about the possibilities for Orion and look forward to your feedback.
