Bugs/Issues
Discover the current bugs and issues in Orbit. Note that a large amount of the activity goes on in Bugzilla. Configure your Bugzilla account email preferences to watch the one of the Orbit inbox users (e.g., orbit.bundles-inbox@eclipse.org) to monitor bug activity.
CVS
The Orbit code is hosted in the normal Tools project repository and is available via web access or direct CVS access. For direct access, use anonymous login to the CVS repo

:pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org/cvsroot/tools

The Orbit work goes on in the org.eclipse.orbit in folders appropriate for the work being done. Please not that in general the code for a particular version of a library is held in a branch of the related project. This is done to accomodate multiple versions of the code library. You should ensure that you check out the correct branch for your needs.

Website
The Orbit website itself is hosted in a Git repository and mirrored on a conventional HTTP server every minute or so. This allows use of PHP, Flash, ... and enables versioning and diffing using Eclipse. The site is open for editing by all Orbit committers using:

ssh://<committer_id>@git.eclipse.org/gitroot/www.eclipse.org/orbit.git

You can use Eclipse to check out the whole site and then edit and commit. Remember your changes will take a minute or so to be reflected in the real site.
