The source files of the project are stored in Git repositories. Please see the summary tab of a repository for details about the URL required to clone a repository to your local machine.
In addition to the Git repositories hosted by the Eclipse Foundation, there are also mirror repositories at GitHub. But note that these mirrors can lag several hours behind in terms of commits showing up.
Please note that due to legal requirements, we will not accept pull requests. Instead, contributors are asked to create a patch file and attach it to an entry in our issue tracker.
For any new source/resource files, please ensure you have the proper copyright/license header in place. See Default Eclipse Foundation Copyright and License Notice for the header template with explanatory notes.
A patch should be created with
git format-patch such that we can properly integrate and attribute your
contributions. Please note that the output of
git diff is not acceptable as a patch file.
When editing sources files, please respect our existing code style. Corresponding formatter settings for some IDEs can be imported from the following resources:
Building the sources requires Apache Maven 2.2.1 or newer and a Java Developer Kit for Java 5 or higher.
The project uses Bugzilla to manage bugs and feature requests.
Committers should configure their Bugzilla email preferences to watch the user
aether.core-inbox(AT)eclipse.org in order to get notifications for new issues.
This project uses the following mailing lists:
Note that -dev and -pmc lists are intended for project-related communications among project developers.
We use Eclipse's Hudson instance for our continuous integration builds. Hudson is configured to periodically poll our Git repositories for changes and automatically starts a new build when required.
Besides cross-platform testing, CI is also used to automatically deploy snapshot/nightly builds. Those builds are generally not production-ready but only enable feedback from early access users. The following Maven repository can be used to access these snapshot builds:
<repository> <id>sonatype-nexus-snapshots</id> <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url> <releases><enabled>false</enabled></releases> <snapshots><enabled>true</enabled></snapshots> </repository>
Note: This repository contains snapshots of many projects, not just those produced by Aether.
