Where Does Hudson Live?
Hudson actually exists as two separate but coordinated OSS projects. Hudson core -- the WAR file you download and run and several key plug-ins are all hosted here at Eclipse. However, there many plug-ins which are not part of core and were not part of the inital code contribution. These plug-ins are all hosted in the separate java.net project hudson-plugins. Needless to say although these are two physically separate projects it's all logically one community.
So Why Two Places Exactly?
Well Hudson is more than just the core, plug-ins play a huge part in most users Hudson installs. Not all plug-ins, however, are maintained by the core Hudson team of committers, nore will all plug-ins be suitable for EPL licensing. By hosting the Hudson Plug-in community at Java.net a complete infrastructure can be maintained for developers who want to create plug-ins and license them say under the MIT license.
So Where Do I....?

|Find out about a particular plugin||The Plug-in are listed over on the the Hudson Plug-in wiki|
|Log an issue / bug against the Hudson core||If in doubt you can log issues using the Eclipse Bugzilla system.|
|Log an issue / bug against a plug-in not included in core||Issues for plug-ins that are not maintained in Eclipse can be logged on the Hudson Plug-in Issues System.|
|Look up an old Pre-Eclipse Hudson issue||We've maintained the Historical Issues repository here. However, you should only use this repository for reference. All new issues against the Hudson Core should be created in the Eclipse Bugzilla system.|
