Vice President of Product Development, Actuate Corporation
Nominee for committer representative
PMC Lead for the Eclipse BIRT Project
|email:||wli at actuate.com|
As Eclipse becomes more and more successful, many additional projects are being proposed or created every month. The number and diversity of committers has also increased dramatically. Many committers find it difficult to keep up with the changes in the community. There isn't enough time to read all the new project proposals, nor enough time to learn what is happening in other projects, and as a result, committers find it difficult to interact or engage in in-depth discussion with their counterparts on other projects. I would like to work to improve the exchange and flow of information between committers on different projects to build a better sense of community. In addition, I would like to provide assistance to represent the concern and needs from the large (and growing) population of Eclipse committers in Asia.
