Updating Eclipse Corner Articles…

Tuesday, April 11, 2006 - 14:14 by Wayne Beaton

One of the big problems with maintaining any repository of information is that the information can get out of date. You can help.

All Eclipse Corner articles are in a CVS repository (dev.eclipse.org/cvsroot/org.eclipse). You can hook up to this repository to gain access to the articles (www/articles). Changes to articles can be submitted as patches through Bugzilla.

Before you go about making wholesale changes, it’s probably a good idea to make a bugzilla entry describing what you want to do (be sure to include a link to the article you want to change with your entry) so that the community can contribute their thoughts to your plan. Ultimately, an Eclipse Corner committer has to roll in your changes.

What do you get for your efforts? Well, you get credit for your updates. Also, significant changes to an existing article (or contribution of a new one) gets you a super cool Eclipse shirt.

Mmmmm….. Eclipse shirt…..
