I think it would be great to record your thoughts and observations about
collaboration design patterns in the ECF Wiki.
There are a number of sw patterns used in ECF...e.g. adapters, command
pattern, listeners, etc. But these are at the API/sw design level...not
at the communication/collaboration level. So any analysis of
collaboration design patterns and their possible connection to ECF
and/or Eclipse mechanisms/APIs would be wonderful.
As a quick aside...a lot of my own work/interest in team collaboration
is based upon the notion that 'spontaneous collaboration' is frequently
how things really work, and mechanisms/sw to support spontaneous
collaboration must be appropriately dynamic, lightweight, and a 'good
fit' to both team-specific and organization-specific processes.
