Project Phoenix

Monday, May 2, 2005 - 14:31 by Mike Milinkovich

One of the many hats that I wear is project lead for the Phoenix project at Eclipse. This is the project that we have proposed to rebuild the eclipse.org website.

The project is being set up using the same open source rules of engagement that other projects use at Eclipse. So please contribute via the eclipse.technology.phoenix newsgroup and/or the phoenix-dev mailing list. We will be getting CVS and Bugzilla set up after the project is officially created.

Once we get this project going, we are expecting to use an iterative approach to development. One of the first prototypes you can see is a mocked up home page with a new look and feel. Although we expect many changes, this can give you a feel for where the project team is thinking of taking the website. We would certainly appreciate lots of feedback on the newsgroup.

We’re really excited about this project. The Eclipse website has served us well for over three years now. But with the growth of the Eclipse community, we definitely need to re-invest in making it a more flexible and modern site.
