Eclipse uses GitHub as a source of mirrors.

GitHub populates the mirrors from a script that generates a list of repositories from project metadata:

The script is run manually on a periodic basis. We nudge GitHub every once-in-a-while to run the script and update the mirrors.

The script uses the project metadata as specified in the Developer Portal. The implementation is quite robust; you can specify your project's Git repositories (one per line) in any of the following formats:

(Note that you'll have to replace the wildcards above with absolute values for each of your project's repositories; do not include wildcard characters in the values you specify).



The script (and other uses of this information at will normalize the value you provide into an appropriate value.
