First Virgo components available for development

See this if you are interested in doing some Virgo development.

Special thanks go to the Eclipse IP team, especially Barb and Sharon, for making this possible at this stage.

Also thanks to Chris Frost for his help in raising CQs.

Virgo contribution underway

I just finished entering the main CQs (Contribution Questionnaires) for Virgo. The corresponding tracking bugs, which are visible to everyone, are at the bottom of the list here.

Once we've gotten the code committed, it will be possible to others to clone the git repositories, build, test, develop improvements, and submit patches. Essentially we'll be in business as far as contributors and build-it-yourself users are concerned.

Later, when we've also gotten the 3rd party dependencies through the legal process, we'll be able to start doing releases out of
