New toys for Eclipse committers

Recent studies* show that committers pound out more code and add more features when they're happy, so we're giving them some new toys to play with.

Up for grabs are eclipse.org e-mail aliases. That's right, why cower behind an "everyone-got-one" gmail address when you can be admired by all for being john.doe@eclipse.org? These aliases will forward e-mail to the address of your choice. Naming convention is firstname.lastname@eclipse.org... Sorry, no sexyeclipsegrrrl17's allowed. Want one? Are you a committer? Then read the thread in bug 110156 first.

Next up are servers for projects. Does your project need a build or application server? Impress your friends by downloading the 100MB+ Eclipse SDK in three seconds flat. We'll give you a Linux server with a shared 3 GHz Xeon, dedicated 512 MB of RAM and 40 GB of disk space, root access and a cool subdomain at eclipse.org (ECF and CDT have already signed up). Offer good while supplies last. See your dealer for details.

These toys are for eclipse.org committers only. Some restrictions apply. Must be 18 years of age or over, or have parental consent. See webmaster for details. * Pure speculation. Totally unfounded and non-scientific. Your mileage may vary.
