An update on the Linux Distros/Tools project

The Linux Distros/Tools project has recently been picking up steam. We have begun a number of new initiatives and are continuing to progress well on our goal of getting Eclipse technology into Linux distributions. An update on how we are working towards making it as seamless a transition as possible to move from Eclipse plugin to Linux distribution package will be given. Also come to get an update on the progress of our tools for Linux developers including:

With many Linux distributions making Eclipse technology available and with tools like these being created, it's a great time for Eclipse on Linux!
Doug Schaefer is the Eclipse CDT Project Lead and has been involved with the CDT since it became an Eclipse project many moons ago. He has long been interested in open source platforms and tools with a keen interest in ensuring the CDT is easily adoptable by the mass of newb's interested in joining the fun with software development using good old native development tools such as C , the GNU tool chain and embedded Linux. He also is the creator and maintainer of the Wascana Desktop Developer open source project that provides these tools for Windows development as well. His day job is as the engineering manager for Wind River's install and licensing technology where he's busy driving adoption of the Eclipse p2 provisioning framework in Wind River and the IDE tools community.

Andrew Overholt works for Red Hat as a part of their Tools group. He is the project lead for the Linux Tools project which is a part of the eclipse.org Technology top-level project.
