Eclipse Enterprise Users newsgroup

The Eclipse Enterprise Users group just opened today. Miles Daffin, who suggested the group, posted this welcome message:

"Are you responsible for providing eclipse at your firm? If so then this may be the group for you.

For the past 3 years I have been in charge of providing eclipse at my company. This presents some special challenges. The essence of the problem is that users are not allowed to download and install software from outside the corporate firewall. I therefore needed to create a private, secure replica of the outside world's Eclipse environment to service the needs of 1000+ java developers. In doing this I have encountered issues that do not seem to bother most other types of Eclipse user, so it is difficult to get useful responses in the other groups. There have been many times when it would have been really useful to discuss things with people 'in the same boat'."

Great idea, Miles!
