Git/External Mirrors

< Git
Revision as of 22:07, 8 November 2011 by Wayne.eclipse.org (Talk | contribs)

Eclipse uses GitHub as a source of mirrors.

    https://github.com/eclipse

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

    http://eclipse.org/projects/git-repos.php

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).

Example:

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