Eclipse Foundation-managed GitHub Organizations

The Eclipse Foundation manages several organizations on GitHub; one for each of the forges.

When you move your project to Eclipse, all existing related GitHub repositories must be moved into the corresponding GitHub organization. As part of the intellectual property (IP) due diligence process, each repository's history must be collapsed into a single commit that will be used as the project's initial contribution. The history may remain obscured in the original repository, but it must be hidden from casual attempts to clone or pull.

Moving a Repository

The first step is to assign ownership of the repository to the Eclipse Foundation's Webmaster.

  • Use the GitHub web interface to transfer ownership of each project repository to 'eclipsewebmaster.
