|[eclipse.org-architecture-council] RE: Nominating Kim Moir|
Dear Fellows, Before I cast my vote on Kim's nomination, I would like us to pause just a little. I think VERY highly of Kim personally, regarding her capabilities as a build engineer, her passion for and also her contributions to the Community as a whole. But I'm not so sure whether it is a good idea to nominate somebody into the Architecture Council just because of being good in an area that the Architecture Council is interested in promoting. Technically speaking, Kim doesn't need to be on the AC to help out; we could as well create a working group for release engineering, or similar. So, before casting a vote, please consider our published criteria for AC members: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Architecture_Council/Membership In particular, - would she be a good Mentor to other projects? - is she perceived as an Authority in the Community? - could she guide new projects through the Development Process and IP questions? - does she have vision and understanding about Eclipse Architecture as a whole? I'm not saying that we have to follow these guidelines religiously, but I do think it is important for the Architecture Council as a whole to have high entry critiria. If we grow too large as a Council, just because it's convenient to get some work done, we risk losing authority as a body. Thoughts for discussion.... What do YOU think?

She has been the force behind ensuring Eclipse builds and ships on time. Her background in what it takes to ship Eclipse will be an asset to the council as we face the challenges of an expanding ecosystem. The more projects we get, the more complex the release engineering gets. I believe she will have a positive impact on improving the state of release engineering at Eclipse. So, +1 from me -- Cheers, Chris Aniszczyk http://aniszczyk.org +1 860 839 2465 _______________________________________________ eclipse.org-architecture-council mailing list eclipse.org-architecture-council@xxxxxxxxxxx https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/eclipse.org-architecture-counci l IMPORTANT: Membership in this list is generated by processes internal to the Eclipse Foundation.
