Greetings committers,

There's a lot happening in Eclipse-infra-land, and I thought it would be good to keep you informed.

In this issue: Quicksilver: new website Look & Feel, Scaling up the Common Build Infra (CBI), GDPR, Git/Gerrit changes

Quicksilver: new website Look & Feel

On April 19, the Webdev team launched a new look & feel for, codenamed Quicksilver, which was announced in a blog post by Christopher Guindon [1].

The main goal of the redesign is to better highlight Eclipse as a collection of working groups, open source projects, vendors and individual committers all collaborating in the same space to create innovative technologies.

Projects can use one of two $theme values for their project website: ‘eclipse_ide’, a Quicksilver variant which retains the traditional visual ties to the Eclipse IDE[2], or the default ‘quicksilver’ theme seen on all other pages. The webdev team is planing to roll out additional updates  across our broader web properties over the coming weeks.

Scaling up the Common Build Infra (CBI)

Eclipse projects will soon benefit from a brand new enterprise-grade continuous integration (CI) infrastructure. Expected improvements are: resiliency, scalability and nimbleness. We are doing this move with tremendous support from our friends at CloudBees and RedHat with their respective products Jenkins Enterprise (CJE) and OpenShift Container Platform.

OpenShift is already running on our hardware and we plan to have CJE running by the end of May. We don’t expect much disruption, and most of projects won’t need to change anything to their build settings.

Starting in a couple of weeks, all new projects will get a CJE JIPP instead of a regular JIPP. Soon after, we will start migrating existing JIPPs by calling for volunteer guinea pig projects. Tereafter, we will gradually ramp up the migration and move all remaining projects over to CJE. There is no set timeline, but we aim to move most projects to CJE before the end of the year.

More background can be found on Mikaël Barbero's blog post[3].


New EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) [4] regulations come into effect May 25. Although the Eclipse Foundation does not maintain much personal user data, these regulations require us to make changes to how we capture, store, utilize and dispose of such data.

Expect some minor changes to our website (specifically, in your User Profile [5]) and some new policies related to user data.

Git/Gerrit changes

Webmaster Matt Ward has announced that, on June 4, 2018, all Eclipse Git repos will be migrated from the traditional C++ based git [6] implementation towards jGit[7], via Gerrit Code Review[8]. Although we do recommend its usage, projects need not use Code Review, as Gerrit acts as both the Code Review system the Git engine itself.
