Re: [ecf-dev] request for vote

Hi Harshana,

Here's a page with links to membership types, membership benefits, and membership process information:

Note the email for membership stuff is apparently membership at I expect that emo at will also work just fine.

IMHO the voting power (for Board membership) is the most important right/responsibility for committer members, as the Board's choices have a large effect on the projects and the future of the whole community (I was a committer Board representative myself 3 years ago, and so I have first hand experience with this).

Hi Scott,

Could you pls explain me about pros and cons other than voting power of becoming a EF member ? (A URL to get the information is enough.)

Thanks and Regards,
Harshana Martin

    Hi ECFers,

    The Eclipse Foundation recently announced the nominees for the
    committer representative on the Board of Directors:

    The voting opens February 8th and I urge everyone to vote for your
    Board representatives.  The Board sets everything from IP policy
    to development process to EF resource allocation...and all these
    decisions effect the EF projects deeply on a day-to-day basis.
    Particularly if you are an independent committer or contributor I
    urge you to make sure that you have access to voting.  To be able
    to vote you must be an EF member...either through your employer,
    or as an independent member.  Note that being a member is not the
    same as being a committer.  If you are not a member and wish to be
    one (so you can vote) contact the Eclipse Management Organization
    (EMO)...aka Anne Jacko at emo at <>
    and you can become a member simply by completing a little paperwork.

    There is *no cost to you* to becoming an independent member, and
    such membership allows you to vote for Board representation and
    influence the EF Board in the directions you think are important.
