An Emerging Open VSX Working Group!

Thursday, March 30, 2023 - 12:26 by John Kellerman

A little over a month ago, I wrote a blog about the need for us in the Eclipse Community to establish a sustainable, long term funding and operational model for the Open VSX Registry at open-vsx.org. The current deployment hosts over 2,600 extensions from over 1,600 different publishers and is a critical, vendor-neutral resource for development environments consuming VSX extensions, including those based on Eclipse Theia.

Based on discussions with various stakeholders, we proposed a new working group specifically for the Open VSX Registry and began looking for interested organizations. I'm pleased to say that we have had a great deal of interest and are nearing critical mass to start the working group. As part of the Eclipse Foundation Working Group Process, one of our first steps will be a meeting of interested organizations. We will be hosting a Zoom call, open to all, on Tuesday, April 4, at 11:00 AM EDT. If you would like to be added to the calendar entry, email us at collaborations@eclipse-foundation.org, or simply join using the following coordinates.

We’ll have a mailing list for the working group on line soon. This call will be recorded and posted to that mailing list, which will be our main communication venue for the working group.

Thanks and we're looking forward to seeing you.
