Eclipse Indigo DemoCamps

Eclipse DemoCamps The Indigo DemoCamps held during June were a great success! Eclipse community members attended camps in 30 cities around the world. The next round of camps is planned for November, 2011, so be watching for the call to organize this fall.


Proposed Changes to Eclipse Bylaws

At the March and June membership meetings, upcoming changes to the Bylaws were presented and discussed. On June 14, the Board approved the following changes to the Eclipse Foundation Bylaws. The next step in the process will be an electronic vote of the membership-at-large to approve these changes. The timing of the vote is still to be determined.
  • Replace the annual Roadmap with an annual community report
  • Eliminate the Membership Committee. Make the IP Advisory Committee a Standing Committee
  • Delete the Requirements Council
  • Put the Architecture Council in charge of future revisions of the Eclipse Development Process
  • Delete the requirement for there to be a ratio of Strategic Consumers to Strategic Developers
  • Remove the requirement that the AGM be in Q1
  • Allow for flexibility in covering expenses
  • Sustaining Member board reps need to be a Sustaining Member
  • One committer one vote; the total number of candidates from the same organization may not exceed one-half of the total number of seats available for that year's annual at-large election
