[] RE: Committer Election Replan

Hi all,

I'd like to volunteer as your committer representative for 2005. After a
discussion with Mike I feel that this is a position where I can contribute
to the committer community.

Some of you may know me through my activities in the Eclipse (bugzilla,
newsgroups, mailinglists) and some of you already met me. I contributed a
few patches to some bugs and ported - together with Ed Burnette - the R21
look to Eclipse 3.

I'm not involved into the big teams nor do I live in an
American timezone. Someone may feel that this is a big disadvantage but it
brings also a different kind of view into the committer community. I work
in Germany for an eCommerce company and are also self-employed and
developing Eclipse based solutions for a few clients.

I'm writing to you because I'm asking you to nominate me if you feel
comfortable with my intention and want to support me. I wont nominate
myself ;)

Betreff: [] Committer Election Replan


As you may have realized from Bjorn's recent note, he will no longer be
running in the committer election. This, plus Mike Norman's decision to
join the Board as a strategic developer representative means that our
nominees have gone from four to two in the past week and a half.

This leaves us with a choice: we can either cancel the election process
and vote in John and Kai by acclamation, or restart the election process
and solicit additional nominations.

John, Bjorn, Kai and I believe that it is important that the committers
have a choice in the elections. A second consideration is that there is a
very real chance that new strategic members of the board will mean that we
will require three committer reps rather than two.

Based on this, I would like to propose that we restart the committer
elections and run them on the following schedule.

Feb 7-11: Nominations to be sent by email to emo@xxxxxxxxxxx.
Feb 14: nominees provide their info to the EMO.
Feb 16-18: nominees' info made available on the website
Feb 21-25: voting
Feb 28 --- winners announced

The Add-in Provider elections will run on their current schedule.

So, please: if you're interested in running, put your name forward.
