Eclipse Foundation Councils

As defined by the Eclipse Development Process, the open source projects in Eclipse are guided and co-ordinated by two Councils:

  • Planning: The Planning Council is responsible for establishing a coordinated Platform Release Plan that supports the Roadmap, and balances the many competing requirements. The Platform Release Plan describes the themes and priorities that focus these Releases, and orchestrates the dependencies among Project Plans.
  • Architecture: The Architecture Council is responsible for (i) monitoring, guiding, and influencing the software architectures used by Projects, (ii) new project mentoring, and (iii) maintaining and revising the Eclipse Development Process subject to the approval of the Board. More explanation of the Architecture Council can be found in the Eclipse Development Process and in the guidelines and checklists for the Architecture Council.
