Project Management Infrastructure/Project Metadata
What is Project Metadata?
- Relatively static structural information such as the project description and scope, the names of the project's mailing lists and newsgroups, the bugzilla products, source code repositories, etc.
- Historical information such as previous release downloads, release review slides and IP logs, etc.
- Status and future looking information such as the project and milestone plans, the features scheduled for the current release, release dates, etc.
Who maintains it?
Eclipse committers and project leads are responsible for maintaining their project's metadata. This information is an important part of being an Eclipse project.
