Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Notes from a Heretic: Why do we have the Ganymede update site?

Great! At the DSDP bof at EclipseCon we had a drawn out discussion about creating distributions for embedded development, which necessarily require bundling non-EPL toolchains, but we kept coming back to the legal restrictions currently in place. If those could be worked it would be of great help in getting Embedded developers to try Eclipse.
Cheers,
Pawel

Pawel, I am glad you asked :)

Yes that would enable such packagings - there are legal issues with what is "distributed by Eclipse" still. We have ideas how this can be constructed using Cloudsmith so that users understand when they are getting something that consists of only Eclipse.org checked bits, or when packages use a mix of licenses. I think the fact that users can find all relevant defined distributions in one location makes a big difference.

(1) I would say "ordering a la carte would be difficult without *some common mechanism*" but it doesn't have to be an update site. For example, in a previous email I mentioned Yoxos and Cloudsmith as nice end-user a la carte tools. (I wonder if that email did not get out because I haven't seen any comments about my suggestion.)
+1 on Couldsmith, especially if it would allow us to create distributions that package together Eclipse features and non-EPL components.

Cheers,
