RE: [] Nomination of Linda Chan for theArchitecture Council

Hi Martin!

The archives seem to mask the e-mail addresses, so you're probably better off doing a general search in the newsgroup and mailing list archives for "linda actuate dtp". I found many many references in the newsgroups and mailing lists. I'm including a couple of google search URLs below:

And here's a CVS search that returns 400 or so hits where Linda either created the bug or commented on it.

Hope that helps!

RE: [] Nomination of Linda Chan for        theArchitecture Council

Whow, this sounds impressive! Especially given that Linda's working for
Actuate so she's not a direct co-worker of yours.

I quickly checked the Bugzilla "Eclipse Foundation / Community" component
and didn't find a single comment where
lchan@xxxxxxxxxxx was a commenter
or on CC; I also quickly checked the recent
DTP-PMC archives [1] and couldn't
immediately see any substantial contribution.
So, given that I do not know Linda personally, I'm going to vote "0" unless
you can cite any publicly visible contribution in addition to your personal

[] Nomination of Linda Chan for theArchitecture Council

Hi all...

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 Open Data Access development 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.
+1 from Brian Fitzpatrick
