We're putting in a new, more open process to handle article requests,
proposals, and reviews. For details, see:

http://www.eclipse.org/articles > how to contribute

For background info and rationale for the change see:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=84080

Under this new process articles will be handled much like code. Requests for
new articles will be made in bugzilla under the Community/Articles
component, as will unsolicited article proposals. Drafts will be posted
there as attachments. Review comments can be done in bugzilla comments or
private email as you prefer.

To get the process started I'd like to request everybody who has proposed or
is working on an article to please go ahead and open a new bugzilla entry in
Community/Articles and attach your latest draft. And then everybody who is
reviewing an article can use it starting now for their comments. If you
would like to see an article on a subject but don't want to write it
yourself, you should also open a new bugzilla entry.

Thank you for your patience as we work the kinks out of this new process. If
you have ideas about how to further improve the articles submission and
review process, then you can use, you guessed it, bugzilla to enter them.

By the way, the scope of Eclipse Corner articles is being broadened a bit to
include articles on how developers can use Eclipse for doing things other
than extending Eclipse. This would include tutorials on how to use the tools
to build applications, e.g. using WTP to build Web apps or Web services. For
background on this change see:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=84089

If you have ideas about new articles along these lines, please enter them
in... well, you know. ;-)

Thanks,
--Ed
