|[ui-best-practices-working-group] UI Best Practices Working Group|
I would like to remind everyone that over a year ago we formed a UI Best Practices Working Group, and that each Strategic Developer was asked to make a good faith effort to find someone to participate. That said, all Eclipse working groups are open to all members.
The group got off to a bit of a slow start, but there is now some great momentum observable in the meeting minutes and in some of the documents being produced. Here is just a sampling of some recent documents contained on the group wiki that already look very helpful and useful:
· UI Graphics Style Design (very cool)
Comments and calls to action:
Thanks to everyone participating in the working group.
Progress is clearly being made, and I hope that the goal of having a strong new
version of the guidelines can be attained in time to impact the Ganymede
release in a positive way.
A reminder to all of the Board members to recognize the
efforts of your organization’s representatives
on the working group. They’re doing good and important work here.
3. A further reminder to Board members (especially Strategic Developers) that if your organization is not involved that their participation would be welcomed. We have a chance to make concrete progress on a community topic that has been highlighted as an issue for quite some time now. (Namely, UI cohesion across multiple Eclipse projects.)
