How to create build scripts for automated builds

Some instructions can be found here.

Special instructions while Higgins is in the Incubation phase

  1. All downloadable zip files for builds and milestones must include the word "incubation" in the filename. For example,
   * The jar files in the download zip file are not required to contain the word "incubation" in the filename. (See bug 178944 for the explanation.)
  1. All "Bundle-Name"s must include the world "incubation". Note that "Bundle-SymbolicName"s should not include "incubation" because the Bundle-SymbolicName is a technical namespace, not a user namespace. For example, Bundle-Name: Foo Plug-in (Incubation)
  2. Similarly, the names for update manager features must include the word "incubation". For example, Eclipse Platform (Incubation)
