Reactions to “Hudson to Eclipse”

The big news yesterday (May 4th) was a proposal to the Eclipse Foundation to move Hudson there.  The proposal came from Oracle, the Hudson trademark owners; supporters included TaskTop and Sonatype.

Below is a list of links to announcements, discussion threads, posts and press articles on the topic, without commentaries.

My Footnotes

  1. The FAQ says: “Moving Hudson to Eclipse …. was proposed to the core Hudson community before the fork” – this is not correct.  The proposal was to move “to an Eclipse-like structure”, but the key issue of trademark ownership was not included.

  1. Great that you posted this balanced coverage of the news Eduardo.

    One thing I want to clarify is that it’s a stretch to put me in the “Hudson Folks” camp, as Tasktop’s role in ALM is a neutral one. We support what our customers use and we thrive on diversity. As summarized on my blog and follow-up comments, I am in the camp that sees Eclipse as the best path that has been proposed to date for the governing the various commercial and community interests around this technology.

  2. fixed. i used that title for expediency; probably should have been more thoughtful.
    i now list you under “Supporters of the Proposal”. Let me know if you see any other issues.
