Eclipse CBI - Common Build Infrastructure changes

Friday, September 28, 2018 - 14:56 by Denis Roy

The Eclipse CBI, which traces its roots back to 2006, has undergone some important changes recently, including a new Kubernetes+Docker-powered environment at https://jenkins.eclipse.org that we announced previously.

Like all the Foundation's services, CBI does not operate at zero-cost, and its immense success over the years has given us many a headache in balancing operating cost vs. the great value it provides to our projects.

We've now defined the CBI offering in more clear terms; notably, the resources and support levels that projects can expect to receive. For 90% of our projects, these resources are sufficient and for them, nothing changes.

We are aware that one-size-does-not-fit-all, and some projects just need more. Additional resources are therefore available to projects that are backed by a Member company.

The CBI page at https://wiki.eclipse.org/CBI has all the info on CBI, JIPP and all the services that are included, as well as the available resources and service levels we're offering.

We hope Eclipse projects continue to receive great value from Eclipse CBI, and we continue to work hard on providing a service that meets the growing needs of our projects.
