Babel: no need to use map files anymore

Participating in Babel, the crowd-sourced translations effort for Eclipse projects, just got easier: you will soon be able to point it to your update site or p2 repository, and Babel will figure out the rest for you.



Currently, Babel only supports parsing map files, then importing your English strings from your code repository. But since map files are not used by all projects, specifying your update/p2 site will make Babel easier to use.

For more info, see the mailing list post from our fearless leader, Kit Lo.

Bug 300,000 -- we have a winner

Looks like Holger Voormann won my Bug 300K contest.  Holger, I will coordinate with Lynn and get some Eclipse swag to you ASAP.  Congrats!

I guess that means the next bug number of interest will be bug 314159.  That could just take a few months at this rate!

Do you have ideas for more queries or "top-X" lists that would be interesting?  Post them in the comments.

99.973% uptime



Uptime of our core services (Website, Bugzilla and CVS) has been on the rise, with an average availability of 99.973% for 2009.  If there were 525,600 minutes in 2009, core Eclipse services were missing in action for about 142 minutes.  Sadly, about half of that was because an ISP tech unplugged the wrong cable in May  :(   Oh well, accidents happen.

I'm hoping for 99.99% for 2010.
