Google and Eclipse Foundation To Launch Eclipse Labs

The Eclipse Foundation has announced Eclipse Labs, a Google hosted portal to showcase open source projects based on Eclipse

The Eclipse Foundation has announced Eclipse Labs, a Google hosted portal that will showcase open source projects based on Eclipse.

Its main objective is to feature projects that do not need to go through the rigorous processes expected of official Eclipse projects and to provide visibility to those that could be on their way to getting the official stamp.

According to Mike Milinkovich , Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, Eclipse Labs allows developers to build a project with access to an issue-tracking system; source code repository, including Subversion or Mercurial; and a project Web site.

Google has migrated two projects to the Eclipse Labs: that Workspace Mechanic for Eclipse, that automates maintenance of Eclipse environment and an Eclipse plug-in for the Google Project Hosting issue tracker called Project Hosting Connector for Mylyn.

Check out the beta version of Eclipse Labs currently hosted on Google Project Hosting . The default license is EPL (Eclipse Public License) but one can change it to the other licenses available on Google Code.
