Several million downloads. Year after year, release train after release train.
The EPP project creates all those packages that are available for download from the main Eclipse download site. Do you want to learn how those packages have been built? Do you have special requirements that are not fulfilled by the standard packages? Are you working on a platform that is not supported by EPP? Or do you want to start maintaining a new package?
In this short talk we'll give you a quick overview of the packaging technology and the processes that generally go unnoticed by users downloading bits from the Eclipse Foundation.
