"I am pleased to announce that at last week's Board meeting,"
Maybe I am completely blind, but this comes a bolt out of the blue
to me. Surely some discussion was merited?
If compatibility tooling is provided, I see a repeat of our
longstanding ongoing NNTP/Forum synchronization disaster.
If tooling isn't provided we do a major disservice to all our
committers and users, seemingly just to accommodate some projects
who do not seem to be properly committed to Eclipse. Eclipse is a
community that IMHO endeavors to provide a unified capability. We do
not need fragmentation. (Unless of course we are all to move to
IIRC there was originally enthusiasm for using GitHub as a mirror
for Eclipse GIT repos. Unfortunately this did not work. I suggest
that efforts at GitHub support would be better spent on solving the
GitHub mirroring rather than a flaky Bugzilla customization.

Several years ago the Eclipse Foundation started allowing its
projects to host their day-to-day development at GitHub. As part
of that, we implemented several processes to ensure that Eclipse
projects could maintain their freedom of action should GitHub ever
go away, or dramatically alter their terms of service. A number of
the projects which host their development at GitHub subsequently
asked if they could also start using GitHub Issues, rather than
Bugzilla for tracking issues.
I am pleased to announce that at last week's Board meeting, the
Eclipse Foundation approved the following two resolutions:
This does not mean that you can start using GitHub Issues
for your project right away. It does mean that the EMO has started
working on a plan to enable that, and we hope to do so soon.
Please follow bug
481771 if you are interested in progress on this.
that with PMC approval, the Board approves the use of GitHub
Issues for Eclipse projects which are hosted at GitHub. The
EMO is instructed to backup GitHub Issues data on eclipse.org
server infrastructure to ensure the future freedom of action
of these projects.
the EMO is instructed to provide instructions to Eclipse
projects hosted on GitHub on how to properly utilize GitHub
features (e.g. Release Pages) to remain compliant with the
Eclipse project branding requirements, Eclipse Development
Process, and the Eclipse IP Policy.
