Introduction

This page is to document answers to frequently asked questions about the yearly Simultaneous Release process or build.

What are the most important URLs

Where can the common repository be tested, before it is rolled out for a milestone or release?

The best place is the "staging area", by adding this URL to your "available software locations" list.

http://download.eclipse.org/releases/staging

Note: to get the best test, disable all other repositories in your list, or you might end up pulling something from some other repository, not staging. Be aware that moving a specific build to "staging" may happen only every few days (if you need something promoted more urgently, just ask on cross-project list).
