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 theOpen DataAccess 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
Through the last few years, she's been instrumental in helping
shepherd the Data Tools Platformproject 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
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.
