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.
I've asked Philippe for feedback within a week. After that time, about 4/21, I'd like to send to Eclipse Foundation for distribution, but schedule the actual review about a month out, approximately 5/21, so there will be sufficient time for counter proposals if anyone is interested
Comment from Raghu was to add more detail when it's available, such as "number of commits", "number of posts", and who exactly is interested, etc. I don't think this is strictly required, but I agreed to add some, as time permits. Note: some of the existing examples may have had more detail since it was, basically, the Eclipse Foundation asking for the termination, not the project leadership itself.
Some thought it was too late to start, not enough time for this release. Others thought there might be enough time, and it wouldn't hurt to try ... if no clear "winner" we could just keep going for next release. We'd want to spell out the different formats required, one for web page (both large and small) and icon formats and ... anything else?
The main conclusion was we (or, I) don't have the resource to do automatically each week, though that's probably desirable (ideally after someone sanity checks it, but maybe that's not practical). So, bottom line for now is "upon request" (to wtp-releng) or until I think about it, which ever comes first) :).
Raghu noted we should remind PLs to update plans every milestone.
Tim still owes writeup of tips on how to get started.
Naci reports web pages for education materials are about ready. He is writing article, as deadline is in December. Raghu was only response he got for being interested in contributing too.
