Just over 100 days ago, some members of the Hudson community voted to change the project name and reassert community governance over their version of continuous integration server for Java development as the Jenkins project. Oracle, still the commercial sponsor of Hudson after acquiring it in the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, today announced a proposal to fully donate the entire Hudson project to the Eclipse Foundation.
The proposal, which essentially sets forth the donation of all governance of Hudson to the Eclipse Foundation, was set to be announced to the Hudson developer's mailing list at 8 a.m. PDT this morning, accompanied by a press announcement.
