[eclipse.org-architecture-council] Nomination of Linda Chan for the Architecture Council
After getting the great feedback from Mike M & Martin on what it takes
to nominate someone for the Architecture Council, I'd like to nominate
Linda Chan as a potential candidate for the EAC.
Linda leads the
in the DTP Connectivity sub-project, as well as serve on the PMC since
DTP started, and works for Actuate Corporation. She also serves as
the DTP Incubator project lead.
Through the last few years, she's been instrumental
in helping shepherd the Data Tools Platform
project from its inception to where we
are today. She always has the best interests of not only DTP in mind, but
the DTP and BIRT communities as well, making sure that changes we make
a) make sense and b) add value.
She is not afraid to speak her mind on topics
affecting not only coding in DTP, but policies and procedures as well.
She often brings up points of view that quite frankly didn't occur to me
or other members of the DTP PMC, which is nearly always refreshing.
Over the last year, she's been mentoring the Ecore-ODA project in the DTP
Incubator and we've seen it grow not only technologically, but by leaps
and bounds in the community. She was instrumental in helping the developers
working on the project get their feet pointed in the right direction.
As such, I think her technological chops, community-driven mindset and
mentoring skills would make her a great candidate for the AC. With the
AC taking more of an active "steering committee" approach now
in terms of mentorship, providing solid examples, and helping guide policies
and procedures where necessary, Linda would fit right in and be willing
to contribute immediately to the broader Eclipse community.
Please vote for recommending Linda Chan to Mike as a new EAC member.
