Help Us Sustain Open-vsx.org!

Wednesday, February 22, 2023 - 11:26 by John Kellerman

Between TypeFox and the Cloud DevTools Working Group at the Eclipse Foundation, we've had a great run with the Open VSX Registry at https://open-vsx.org/, a vendor neutral, open source marketplace for VS code extensions. The current deployment hosts over 2500 extensions from over 1600 different publishers.

We’re working on a new funding and governance model for https://open-vsx.org/ that will be more sustainable in the long term. The basic structure will be an Eclipse Foundation working group, with an option to sponsor only and not participate in the governance and management of the deployment. If we do not generate enough interest in this proposed working group, we’ll be forced to decommission https://open-vsx.org/ by the end of May, 2023.

If you have a commercial interest in, or your customers have a commercial interest in, the success and long term viability of https://open-vsx.org/ and wish to be part of the organization responsible for https://open-vsx.org/, let us know at collaborations@eclipse-foundation.org.
