Re: [aperi-dev] Re: Aperi Project status

Yes, you are correct.  I was thinking of the upcoming Eclipse World.  My
mistake.  I will let the team know about Planet Eclipse to see if there is
interest.

I believe that you may be misunderstanding what PlanetEclipse is.
PlanetEclipse is a blog aggregator. Blogging is a pretty effective way
of letting the world know what you're up to and aggregating a blog on
the planet is a good way of making sure that the Eclipse community hears
about it.

Relatively speaking, blogging is cheap and the attention that it can
bring your project can add a lot of value.

Please consider participating with PlanetEclipse.

Thanks,

Wayne
