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 ) 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.
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.
