Re: [eclipse-dev] Adios amigos !

Thanks for all your contributions to Eclipse, Srikanth! I don't think we could have had a successful Java 8 release without your tireless efforts on specs and compiler implementation. I wish you all the best in your next endeavors.

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 source story.

Many thanks and good bye.

I'll be watching and cheering the Eclipse project team from the sidelines.
