The Über Repository is a place where projects can opt to have their milestone and release builds aggregated from their own update sites. It provides a one-stop-shop for the community an eco-system to easily find and leverage projects that otherwise are only accessible via project-specific downloads. This repository does not replace, but rather augments the release train (Helios) repository. Like the Helios repository, the Über Repository is accessible either via p2 or Maven.
In this lightning talk, we'll introduce the Über Repository and show you how your project can participate in it.
Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he fills the dual roles of Director of Committer Community and Evangelist. He spends his days working with the many Eclipse projects, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. Wayne is also the editor-in-chief of Eclipse Corner, PMC Lead for the Technology Project, Project Lead for the Examples Project, co-Project Lead for the SOC Project, and an advisor for osbootcamp. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.
