Just a friendly reminder that Alpha2 code freeze is coming up on this 
Thursday the 16th [1]
if you are on Red Hat VPN you can access the ical for it at [2]. Planned 
release of this is for 27th April.

This Alpha2 is "Special" in the sense it is targeting Eclipse Mars M6 
which includes a lot of updates and fixes
to the platform including:

* OS X p2 layout has changed = OS X users cannot update from Mars M1-M5 
to M6, need to install.
* Jetty 8 to Jetty 9 (major api change)
* egit 3.x to 4.0
* GTK3 bug fixes (Snjezana Go Go!)
* ...and probably a lot more ;)

Big things hoping to show up in Alpha2 if you are not aware are:

* easyimport
* OpenShift v3 tooling (it did not make it to Alpha1)
* First working and pretty version of Central on HTML5
* <fill in your thing here for N&N >


Good luck and don't be afraid to ask if you find issues in M6.
There are still time to fix it upstream! :)

p.s. I'm not available this Friday - but Fred Bricon promised to fill in 
for me if any questions/concerns
around code freeze and readiness.
