Re: [eclipse-pmc] New Component Leads in the Eclipse Project

We don't formally track component leads. In fact, we don't really have any notion of "component" in the EDP any more. Components tend to be more of a concept within a project and tend to be managed via social convention. Component leadership is therefore also more of a social convention. Everything that was a "component" is really now a "project" (or "subproject" if you prefer).

With Bug 324772 [1], we have managed to clean up the UNIX groups for the Eclipse project. Now, we have started a process of aligning the projects with these changes.

Platform Ant (eclipse.platform.ant) was flagged as a candidate for retirement. The project itself is meaningless as it existed only to provide a distinct UNIX group for committers; those committers (and the directories they have access to) have been moved (I'm not sure how, but I believe that information is available in one of the attachments on the bug).

Since Platform Debug and JDT Debug still exist in the new scheme, I'd like to suggest that we turn them into proper projects and assign the named committers as PLs. This change should really only mean that these "projects" will need to have a little portal metadata specified for them (set the "inherit" flag to true at a minimum). Let me know if this needs any more 'splainin'.

Please take a look at the list of projects that John has identified in the bug as retirement candidates and comment appropriately. Note that none of the listed projects have any actual meaning with regard to commit rights after the group cleanup.

Dear EMO,

the Eclipse PMC has ratified the following new component leads:

Michael Rennie for Platform Ant
Pawel Piech for Platform Debug
Michael Rennie for JDT Debug

Not sure whether you need to approve this since this is below the
(sub-project) level.
