Parallel IP for Mature Projects
I was happy to read the email this morning on the eclipse.org-committers mailing list.
The mail was from Janet Campbell about the extension of parallel IP to mature projects in certain cases as approved by the Eclipse board. Ensure to read the message if you deal with third party packages (and who doesn't :-) )
The certain cases are where I fall working on the Eclipse Ant integration.
Apache Ant has been reviewed and approved for version 1.7.0 and has been bundled in the last few Eclipse releases.
The changes pending for the Ant 1.7.1 release, I believe, would fall into the "hasn't changed a great deal" category.
A great compromise to ensure timely inclusion of third party packages for development and testing while maintaining the squeaky clean IP track record of Eclipse.
Now we just need the Ant 1.7.1 release and I can get in a CQ! :-)
