Re: [] Exception request for EGit


I think there's some potential risk here but I'll give my +1 because I realize EGit is important to many people, and there are understandably going to be growing pains with transitioning an existing project into the Eclipse infrastructure and development process. However I think it's important that this project integrate into the Helios build soon with M5 fast approaching (Feb 5). I guess we can evaluate the state at the next planning call. Also we did agree to have our plans available by M4 at the latest (see "Planning" section in [1]) so it's important to get that in place too...

I haven't been following the egit project so forgive me if I'm just looking in the wrong place. I just looked on the egit home page to get more information ( In the downloads section, it says "No downloads are available yet". Has this project done any builds yet? Under plan information, there is one planned release (v0.6.0, Jan 1, 2010). Has this release happened? Is there a plan for the next release? I'd like to give my +1 here, but would like to see some sign that the project can actually contribute something to the Helios build in the near future...

Oh, only if I could describe you the situation. Two issues: EGit/JGit project separation due to ip concerns and maven/eclipse build issues.

There's a gigantic thread on the egit-dev list about this issue:

It boils down to maven/eclipse integration pain. JGit is built using Maven atm... EGit will not. We expect to resolve the building issue soon and as soon as we do, we were going to declare a 0.6.0 release.

We have builds running on

Active contributions via the Gerrit instance

So I ask people to be a bit understanding as the plan is updated and build situation sorted out.
