Jetty’s use is obviously extremely widespread. Several projects, including Equinox (OSGi) and the IDE at the Eclipse Foundation actually already include versions of Jetty. And now, Jetty as a project has proposed to join that foundation here. Please do take a look at that proposal, and join the linked newsgroup with your comments. No one currently using Jetty loses any rights, as the existing license still applies and will continue to do so for future releases. Looking forward!

We are also glad to see the early reactions are hugely positive, and in agreement that this will help spread Jetty and help Jetty’s existing users. For example, Infoworld and EclipseSource

We encourage you to visit the proposal, and its linked newsgroup to talk about the move and share any suggestions/encouragement/criticisms you may have.
