Some of you who are following this project may be wondering why it hasn't been created yet. The cause of the delay is executing trademark assignment agreement on the name "Sapphire". Eclipse Foundation's and Oracle's legal teams have been working on a transfer agreement for the last two months. Unfortunately, the project could not be created until the agreement is finalized and signed. The good news is that I think we a pretty close to putting this behind us.

I have been thinking a bit about this aspect of Eclipse Development Process and have proposed some changes that would prevent future similar delays for other projects. If you are interested, see the following bug for discussion:

Good news. I just received confirmation that the trademark transfer agreement has been finalized and that Eclipse Foundation fully approves the use of the name "Sapphire" for this project. We are cleared to move to the next step...

The creation review will be scheduled for the week of October 13-20.

Sounds like good news,
Some things just are worth waiting for now aren't they, so is it still scheduled in for 20th October?

I believe so. I would expect to see an announcement of the creation review on the 13th.
