OHF Developer Resources
OHF in the Eclipse CVS
The OHF project in the Eclipse CVS can be accessed through the ViewCVS web interface.
You may also download the code using your favourite CVS client using the following parameters:
- host: dev.eclipse.org
- repository path: /cvsroot/technology
- user name: anonymous
- modules path: org.eclipse.ohf/plugins/
See the plugins wiki pages in order to understand what plugin projects you want to look at.
If you want to get all of them, you navigate through the modules on eclipse.org to the modules path "org.eclipse.ohf/plugins", then select all 45 plugins (click on the top on, press shift, then click on the bottom one).
Insuring Your Contributions Are Legal
Before any code can be committed to Eclipse, it is absolutely imperative that:
- Its Intellectual Property (IP) be properly credited
- That due diligence is performed to confirm that all code submitted is EPL compliant with Eclipse-approved open source licenses
- That it contains all required legal documentation within the code itself
Here are some links to what you need to know about the IP process and its requirements:
- Eclipse Legal Resources Page
- Eclipse Legal Process Flowcharts1
- Committer Due Diligence Guidelines1
- A Guide to the Legal Documentation for Eclipse-Based Content1
- Eclipse Foundation Intellectual Property Policy1
IPzilla! A way to track the status of your Contribution Questionaires
Although several of the above links1 are embedded within the Eclipse Legal Resources Page and its own links, they are important and helpful enough that shortcuts are provided here to make them easier for you to find when you need to refer to them.
