Chris Aniszczyk has nominated you to join the Eclipse Architecture Council in recognition of your achievements for the Eclipse Community. In it's phone meeting last Thursday, the Council unanimously accepted this nomination and Mike Milinkovich approched today. As per the Eclipse Development Process , 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.
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  for more information. If you have any questions, or find those pages unclear, just drop me an E-Mail or file a bug  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  already mentions some items that should help newcomers get started.
I'd appreciate getting you on board. Let me know what you think!
Martin, I'll go ahead and update the database, and this
will automatically add Kim to the Councils web page. I won't notify her
directly because I imagine you will want to welcome her to the AC yourself.

Based on the nomination from Chris Aniszczyk (below), I would
like to ask you to appoint Kim Moir into the Architecture
Kim's nomination got very strong support and express statements
of favor on the AC mailing list (with votes 12 +1 / no 0 / no -1),
and on the last monthly phone call the AC unanimously agreed
that we'd like to ask Kim join the AC. This is particularly
remarkable as it speaks for Kim's expertise, leadership and
knowledge of the Eclipse processes even without actually
leading a project (well none that I am aware of, at least).

Subject: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Nominating Kim Moir
I would like to nominate Kim Moir to the Architecture Council.
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
