This page is to capture a few notes on e4Build build Id.

This id is "owned" by Paul Webster and at this time is "shared" by David Williams, John Arthorne, and Bogdan Gheorghe (at at times others) to do the various builds for the Eclipse Project; the Eclipse SDK, Orion, e4 Incubator, etc. Usually once a "build user" is given initial access they set up access via SSH certificates so they don't require the password any longer (this allows Paul to change and safeguard the password at any time he'd like).

1. The ID has been given the right accesses and permissions to sign and commit/push tags to git, and it can push changes to the maps project. (See bug 374248)

2. As a general rule, nothing should be changed or stored in e4Build $HOME. Some things, such as .cvspass, .bashrc would in principle change how other "shared builds" run. So, please not any special cases or changes here on this page.

3. One implication of the above "rule" is that during builds, if people use Eclipse to do something during the build, they should be sure to point to a "workspace" in their own build area, or else the default is ${user.home}/workspace. For example, you might use -data /shared/eclipse/e4/workspace-orion when invoking your eclipse instance.
