It is with great pleasure (and just
a bit of last minute fuss) that the Equinox Provisioning team announces
the delivery of its Milestone 1. Milestone 1, as the name implies,
is our first step towards a new provisioning system for Eclipse.
We have hit most of the major items on the M1 plan and most importantly
are well-positioned to acheive the M1 goal of self-provision. That is,
we will now use the new provisioning support to install and manage the
Eclipse environment that we ourselves use to write the provisioning system.
Over the comming weeks we will undoubtedly
find various issues and make numerous improvements. We invite you
along on that journey with the understanding that this is M1. It
is very early days and the road will be bumpy in spots. Your ideas,
insights, bug reports and contributions are what will make this effort
a success. Please direct comments to the equinox-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx
mailing list and bug reports to the Eclipse/Equinox/Incubator bugzilla
bucket (use [prov] in the summary line).
