|Re: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Draft for E-Mail to Eclipse-committers|
Hi all,here is the draft E-Mail which I proposed sending to Eclipse.org-committers,announcing our new bugzilla CC abilities. Feedback is welcome, and Iintend finalizing the draft in our meeting tomorrow.--------------------------------------------------------------Subject: Announcing the EAC bug componentThe Eclipse Architecture Council (EAC) is opening its communicationchannels for discussions and questions:As you may be aware, the EAC is staffed by appointed membersrepresenting the most senior committers in the entire community,as well as representatives from each PMC and strategic member.You can now leverage this combined wisdom in the following ways:
- File a bug against the Eclipse Foundation / Community /
Architecture Council component. All EAC members will
get notified and answer the bug as appropriate.
- Put the eclipse.org-architecture-council@xxxxxxxxxxx
E-Mail address on CC of an existing bug. All EAC
members will get notified and comment on your bug
as appropriate.Q: What should be the scope of discussions initiated with the EAC?A: Think of it as a means of "escalation". Any question that you'dlike a mentor's advice on can be brought to the EAC's attention.Including questions like "How do other projects..." - it doesn't evenneed to be limited to technical questions, in our opinion "architecture"includes organizational issues just as much. We especially appreciatequestions, ideas or suggestions that might be interesting on a broaderscope. See this bugzilla query for existing discussions.In many cases the EAC may not answer your question directly, butpoint you in the right direction; your bug's log will keep the historyof the discussion.Q: How does this relate to the existing cross-project-issues-dev mailing list and bugzilla component?A: We consider the cross-project-isses component as a tool forday-to-day work coordinating between projects, especially thosethat are on the release train (Galileo). The EAC bugs can be morefundamental, broader in scope, or with a longer time horizon.Q: Is this going to scale?A: We'll see, it is an experiment for now but we're very much lookingforward to getting involved in the questions, ideas or suggestions thatyou may have.Cheers,--Martin Oberhuber, Senior Member of Technical Staff, Wind RiverTarget Management Project Lead, DSDP PMC Member
