There will be a build panel next Tuesday afternoon at EclipseCon. I’ll be one of the panellists and hope that it will be a constructive discussion. Have a question about release engineering but were afraid to ask? This is your chance!
We have gifts from our new friends at the Hudson project to give away at the build panel. Hudson is an open source project for a continuous integration server that’s in widespread use, including on build.eclipse.org. Like eclipse, it has a plugin architecture that allows you to add functionality incrementally and the community contributes plugins to make Hudson better. The first thirty people who ask the build panel a question will receive a Hudson sticker to affix to their laptop.
The Hudson committers are also having a hackathon this weekend, if you happen to be in the Santa Clara area this Friday and Saturday.
