RE: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Things Committers should know

Hi again,

> Nope. AFAIK, this isn't captured anywhere.

Hm, that's a problem in my opinion. I think that we shouldn't be
disseminating any information as unstructured "committers should
know" that isn't also available in its preferred structured form.

In other words, if this isn't captured anywhere then we just 
found a problem, and it should be captured now. How would we
ever expect new projects to find their information to do the
right thing if that's not done? In this concrete case, who's
job would it be to put that into its structured place?

On another note, on the Eclipse PMC call, McQ just had the 
idea that the webserver could have some Javascript in the 
Phoenix / Nova UI that automatically turns all external 
links into something that warns users about them being
external. Would that be doable?

What I don't understand here: are projects requested / pushed
to turn components into projects in order to make our
webmaster's work easier, or are we keeping things as-is by
default and projects can opt-in if they want?

I got your note about containers (thanks!), though I personally
think that a simple component -> project change should be
streamlined (simlar to the add-to-orbit / PB-from-orbit CQ's).

I'm still missing a note like "ask your PMC if you want a
new project" that helps interested parties the first step.
On 2nd thought I agree it makes sense that all committers 
know this dev.process change.

Thanks,
