We had a new committer join Equinox
this week, and he was asking for general committer tips. I wrote a reply
talking about the general Eclipse/Equinox development rhythm - when the
different kinds of builds happen, what kinds of changes are appropriate
on any given day/week/milestone, etc. A few people replied that they found
the information very useful and it should be made more widely available.
So, I wrote it up on a wiki page:
Committers, feel free to add/correct
details, and/or link it to your various component committer FAQs if you
think it is useful. This isn't intended as a list of rules, but just some
helpful advice for committers, contributors, and others following the project
about how we work. I hope some people find it useful...
