Friends of Eclipse,
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day! During the month of September, we are asking you to give back to our wonderful open source community. All donations will be used to improve Eclipse technology. Your contribution counts!
We thank you for this gesture, and for giving back to our community.

Wayne reports on ECESIS. Talked to the lead (Dwight). Issues around IP with contributing to ECESIS such as what happens if you put your company logo on the Powerpoint slides, does that cause the logo to become EPL? Building a community has not happened. We (through Wayne) are going to suggest that Dwight hold a restart summit in Ottawa this summer and invite people interested in Eclipse training. This should include both representatives from the projects (because the projects are building training materials) and from the larger community (google for "eclipse training").
We looked into the BPEL project. We noticed that there were no code commits in May and that the commits in April were only to fix the build system and to disable features that did not work in Callisto. We noticed that the last bug activity (the last time a bug was entered, edited, fixed, or commented on) was in March. We noticed that the newsgroup has messages like "wasn't there going to be a release on May 15th" and then two weeks later there is still no reply. We are suspicious that this project has become moribund. Wayne will talk to the leads and find out the real story.
