The Solution

Eclipse users, contributors, and the Eclipse Foundation are working together to create an eco-system for Long-Term Support of the Eclipse code.

Within this eco-system, you will find companies or individuals that will service you. Choose a service provider that is best for you in the  LTS Marketplace and the list of organizations providing the LTS infrastructure.

The advantage over doing it yourself or working outside of the LTS eco-system is that your service provider (who should be a member of the LTS Working Group) is a subject matter expert and has access to existing issues. The expert will provide you with reliable new builds, aggregated and tested on a Eclipse Long-Term Support infrastructure.
