[] You're nominated to join the Eclipse Architecture Council!

Hello Kenn,

Ed Merks has nominated you to join the Eclipse Architecture Council in recognition of your achievements for the Eclipse Community. The Council and Mike Milinkovich have actually approved this nomination back in March already (and we talked briefly at EclipseCon), and I'm sorry for not having sent you the official invitation letter earlier. As per the Eclipse Development Process [1], your nomination is a highly visible confirmation of the Eclipse community's respect for your technical vision, good judgement, software development skills, past and future contributions to Eclipse. It is a role that should be neither given nor taken lightly. Some track record of your nomination advocates is still attached below.

I'm sending this E-Mail to you in order to actually confirm that you're ready to take on that new role. Being on the Architecture Council does not come for free: we do expect our members to be actively involved in the Council's work. We'd appreciate if you can join the monthly 1-hour phone meetings, but being responsive to the council's business in terms of E-Mail discussions is just as important. Given that only AC members can serve as official Mentors for projects, we also expect you to be ready to serve as a Mentor, be open-eyed to interesting things going on in your domain and bring them to the Council's attention. Only pro-active members bring real value to our cross-functional body.

Over all, an investment of 3 hours each month for AC business should be the minimum expectation (1 hour for the phone call, plus 2 hours for E-Mail business). What you get in return, is getting in touch with some of the most prominent leaders in our Community, first-hand information and a good chance to actually change things that bother you.

See the Architecture Council Wiki pages [2] for more information. If you have any questions, or find those pages unclear, just drop me an E-Mail or file a bug [3] against the AC component. As a new member, you have the unique opportunity to see things like a newcomer, and thus point out things on the website that need improvement; Existing bug 250348 [4] already mentions some items that should help newcomers get started.

I'd appreciate getting you on board. Let me know what you think!

Hi Mike,
may I recommend Kenn Hussey to you for appointment to the Eclipse Architecture Council.
He's got an impressive support of 19 +1's from current AC members, and Ed confirmed to
me that he spoke to Kenn and he's actually willing to invest some of his time into the AC.
What else could we want!

Esteemed Council,

I'd like to nominate Kenn Hussey to the council.  He has been an active participant in our community for a great many years.  His technical work is brilliant. Who else could implement something as complex as UML2 single handedly, while helping fix the specification as part of the process?  He is very well respected at the OMG for his contributions there.

His involvement at Eclipse spans many projects.  His recent effort to integrate EMF and RAP is but one excellent example:
He's reliable, professional, hardworking, and can be counted upon for keen insight and fresh ideas.  You've probably seen that he's an active blogger on the planet always with a positive message to share.

I believe he'd be an asset to the council.
