The Eclipse Foundation is moving to Europe

Eclipse Foundation has formalized its transition to become a European-based organisation. Eclipse explains this transition with several arguments, among them:

  • Most of Eclipse Foundation growth has already been happening in Europe.
  • With 170 of their member organisations and more than 900 of their committers based in Europe, the Eclipse Foundation claims being already the largest open source organization in Europe.

Eclipse Foundation expects to create the Belgian international non-profit association by October 2020. Also Eclipse Foundation is establishing a modern open source project development forge based on GitLab and physically hosted in Europe.
