The Rotor Community Site has opened its doors.

Starting today  the Rotor Community Site at is open for the public. The site has been set up in a collaboration between my group at Cornell and CollabNet, with some help from the folks at the Rotor team and MSR Cambridge.

The site has similar functionality to other community sites such as Helix, Jini and Jxta, or general sites such as sourceforge. We hope that the site will be used by the SSCLI community at large for sharing projects and code. Feel free to start using the site, you can walk through it without a login. If you want to join a project or create one, you will need to register as a user, which is open to everyone. The site is still evolving, in that we will slowly be moving some more resources such as documentation and resource pointers to this site, to have all of those readily available for everyone at one place.

Go use it!

I am very interested in the CVS in your web. Hope this CVS source tree can help community to improve the code quality of Rotor.

Currently, I am working on porting the Rotor to FreeBSD-current. Still many trouble.

Your site totally rocks! I am especially interested to see if csujun posts his FreeBSD code on the site.

This is a momentous occasion and I hope that all the Rotor grantees will take advantage of this great service....
