[edit] Communication

Eclipse projects have three communication channels: a mailing list for developers, a newsgroup for users, and Bugzilla. Ganymede, although not a "project" per se, will use the same structure:

  • cross-projects-issues-dev [1] - mailing list for developers and releng
  • eclipse.simultaneous-release (TBC) - newsgroup for users
  • bugzilla (new & search) Eclipse Foundation > Community > Cross-Project
