At Eclipse we are running many, many build jobs on our Hudson servers. Most projects are managing multiple jobs, one for each version that they are supporting, sometimes multiplied by the number of sub-components.

The new EPP packages for Helios M6 are uploaded to the download area and just need some more hours to be distributed to the Eclipse download mirrors until we can make them available for the public from eclipse.org/downloads. The mirroring is important, because otherwise the eclipse.org uplink would be entirely saturated and no one could get the Helios M6 bits in time before EclipseCon. In the...
