I think this looks good. Question I have though, is there any
restriction by the Foundation on links to Articles published

and help to make your project become part of the community. Some
projects link to websites that showcase how the project's code is
being used by the community, some to FAQs and other sources of
The content on the Eclipse website and wiki is subject to the Eclipse
information found on other websites are likely subject to different
project's consumers are made explicitly aware of where the Eclipse
project's website ends and the third-party site begins.
You can provide links from your Eclipse project's web site to external
resources (e.g. binaries, code, etc.), provided that:
1. There is some adequate disclaimers that make it clear that
although this is a "related link" that this is not Eclipse content.
2. The link to the existing code is not just be a direct link to
content. It has to be a link to a download page on the external site.
3. The link to their download page needs to be such that it brings
up an entirely new browser so that it is made even more apparent to
the user that they are leaving the eclipse.org website.
Thoughts, concerns, criticisms?
