Stale Bug "ping" service
Your project may have older bugs that are inactive, still open and not getting any attention. We've created a gentle "ping" service that can post a comment on one or two old (> 2 yrs) bugs randomly throughout the day. Here is an example of a stale bug that was resolved as a result of this automated service:
This service is opt-in, and you can opt-out at any time. If you'd like to try it for your project, please drop us a note (webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx) or post a comment on the original request for such a service: http://bugs.eclipse.org/430819
New look for eclipse.org coming soon
Last week we announced the upcoming release of a new skin for www.eclipse.org. Please test your project pages! More info in Christopher's announcement: http://eclip.se/1H and Ian's blog post:

Some time ago the SVN system was deprecated. At this time, we are announcing that SVN service at Eclipse.org will be terminated on December 22, 2014. All projects still on SVN should request migration to Git by filing a bug against Community > Git. More here: http://eclip.se/401737
SWF Flash vulnerabilities
There are many known vulnerabilities with the SWF file format, some of them could be problematic for our website and for our users.

Please see this link for the details (it is a committers-only bug) and for the list of top-level directories that contain such content:
Thank you for reading. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you need assistance with anything, please don't hesitate to contact us at webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx. We're here to help.
 We are making a single exception for the Subversive project who may continue to use SVN for their main code repo.
