Updates from Eclipse

For our latest podcast, we had a chance to get an overview of all things Summer of Code and Eclipse from Philippe Ombredanne, one of the project's organization administrators and mentors for both 2006 and 2007. Philippe shares with us a bit about the Eclipse Foundation and how the various projects under its umbrella are structured. You'll also get the opportunity to learn about how Eclipse structures its participation in Summer of Code, as well as some of the ongoing contributions of some their 2006 GSoC students. Additionally, Philippe shares some insights into effective cross-project mentoring, discussing some collaborative work done this year which was born from discussions started at last year's mentor summit.

Many thanks to Philippe for joining us!

You can download the podcast in mp3 or ogg formats. Alternatively, you can subscribe to it.

If you have a cross-project mentoring success story or any other thoughts to share, post a comment and let us know.

Enjoy the show!

Guys, can the OGG version not be twice as large as the MP3 version? Just back off the quality setting in whatever codec you're using, and I'll happily download OGG if it weren't 75MB vs the MP3 version's 35MB.
