finally I had some time to make a "proof-of-concept" for an Eclipse
Shields server. The idea is to have "shields.io
"  like little images,
which can easily be embedded into web pages, showing some information
about Eclipse Foundation projects.
I did start with a basic shield which does show the project name and
current released version. See it embedded in the README 
The solution is a plain Java EE project, re-using the project
information which is already in the Eclipse PMI and which is accessible
using JSON anyway. So there is no need to put in data twice.
Currently you can create shields using the following URL:https://shields-ctron.rhcloud.com/project/
<project id> - e.g: project
id = technology.package-drone
There are a few things missing, like caching, in order to reduce the
load. But I do have a:
- A running instance on OpenShift : https://shields-ctron.rhcloud.com
(not very useful with additional parameters)
- A project on GitHub 
- An implementation for a Project/Latest version shield
Of course the missing stuff can be added quickly. More shield types and
designs are not that hard as well.
But before I continue, I wanted to get some feedback if there is
interest in such a service, if the project itself, including the source
code and the service could/should be moved to the Eclipse Foundation.
What additional shields would be of interest.
Let me know what you think
