Eclipse and Apache Team Up for OSSummit Asia Conference

Following on previous goodwill built between the Eclipse and Apache communities the two Open Source foundations have decided to partner for the first time on the OSSummit Asia 2007 conference. As announced to Apache committers via the committers mailing list:
"The Apache Software Foundation and Eclipse Foundation are joining together for the first time at OSSummit ASIA 2007

Combining 2 days of in-depth hands on trainings followed by a 3 day conference featuring over 60 presentations, Birds of a Feather gatherings to engage in throughout each day, interactive keynote panel, and Li Gong Chairman and CEO of Mozilla Online Ltd doing the featured keynote."
This is a great step in acknowledging the growing ties between these two communities that now share interests, code, and committers.

Digg Eclipse Articles

Links to Digg, Slashdot and help in the promotion articles and other Web content. Traditional news sites like The Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star (local references) now provide links to these sites from their articles. So where are these links on a site like Eclipse that supports global collaboration on software development? In this case it looks like Eclipse isn't an innovator or early adopter but rather is late to the game. I've opened bug 202856 to add these links to the Eclipse articles. There's a patch there so check it out and voice your opinion in the bug report.
