|[eclipse.org-committers] Review of Legal Records & Provisioning of Committer Accounts|
As many of you are aware, we recently completed a review of our legal records against Committer accounts. We’ve finished our review and I’m pleased to report that there were only 26 Committers identified during the review as requiring additional paperwork. Each of the affected Committers has been contacted with a request that the paperwork be submitted by March 21st. To those of you who were waiting for your accounts to be provisioned while the review was underway, thank you for your patience – all pending accounts have been provisioned where we have the necessary paperwork (42) and where we need additional paperwork, we have been in contact with you. If you believe that your provisioning is pending and have not been contacted, please let either Sharon or I know.
The review was needed as it had come to our attention that a number of projects had moved. Unfortunately, our Employer Consent Form has traditionally named a specific project. We have recently changed this form to permit the Employer to consent to all of their employee’s contributions to Eclipse so this should make it easier for us all going forward. I encourage you to select this option where possible.
