Project Management Committee

The Eclipse Test & Performance Tools Platform Project is managed by a Project Management Committee (PMC). The work of the Top Level Project is organized into Projects, each with its own Project Lead who is responsible for its success. Where appropriate, larger Projects may be further divided into Subsystems, each with its own Lead.

As with any Eclipse Project, this Project will be a meritocracy. We will welcome to the Project all participants who are able to make the requisite commitment and contribution, and will assign responsibility accordingly over time.

Please direct communications addressed to the PMC to mailing list. A number of other mailing lists and a newsgroup eclipse.tptp are available for getting involved. (NOTE: The mailing lists and newsgroup are password protected for spam-protection. If you don't already have an Eclipse news server password you will need to get one ).
