After hesitating a good bit about sending
this blastogram, I decided to - since there
are simply too many people to thank
and bid good bye to.
Tomorrow Nov 30th will be my last day
as committer in JDT/Core & JDT/APT.
It has been my pleasure and privilege
to have had the opportunity to work on this project
co-leading the Java 7 implementation
efforts and leading Java 8 implementation.
I vividly recall the tough times 3 years
ago when the team had nearly gotten decimated and
we had just ~1.5 engineers left which
was barely enough to maintain Juno and work on
Kepler let alone get started on Java
8. From there to a successful release of Java 8
was made possible by contributions and
tremendous initiative from the community
making it a truly global and truly open
Many thanks and good bye.
I'll be watching and cheering the Eclipse
project team from the sidelines.
