Re: [dtp-pmc] New Data Tools Committer
That's great news that Nick will be coming on board. He knows the build system, which is essential to keep DTP going.
As Nick mentioned, it appears he doesn't have much (or any) experience with the DTP code itself. While I haven't been involved with Eclipse-based development for several years now, I'll hang on and try to be available to fix *critical* DTP code bugs should they occur.
BTW, I did some testing of the new DTP build with Eclipse Oxygen, and it's working OK as far as I can tell. (DTP has some components, such as ODA, that I can't properly test due to lack of experience with it and lack of environmental prerequisites.)

Greetings Eclipse Data Tools PMC.
As you know, the Data Tools project has been low on resources for quite some time and we've learned recently that Konstantin, who is the only active committer, has to scale back his involvement in the project.
We do have a volunteer, Nick Boldt, who has stepped forward to take on responsibility to get the project into shape for participation in the Photon release. I believe that Nick is well-known to the community.
Under normal circumstances, we should run an election to get Nick into a committer role. However, I believe that we can reasonably assert that the Eclipse Data Tools project is in an exceptional state and--per the authority granted to the project leadership chain in section 4.6 of the Eclipse Development Process--I have just inserted him into the project.
When we address the restructuring of Data Tools
, we'll sort out which committers should be retired.
