[] Proposal to establish the Adoptium Working Group


A proposal has been made to establish the Adoptium Working Group [1].

The aim of this working group is to advance, promote, and support the dissemination of technologies derived from or related to the Eclipse Adoptium Top-Level Project.  The Eclipse Adoptium project produces high-quality runtimes and associated technology for use across the Java ecosystem.  The working group’s vision is to meet the needs of both the Eclipse community and broader runtime users by facilitating a comprehensive set of technologies around runtimes for Java and Java Virtual Machine-based applications that operate alongside existing standards, infrastructures, and cloud platforms.

The working group will:
·   Establish Adoptium as the industry's trusted source for high-quality enterprise-ready Java runtimes.
·   Promote the "Adoptium" brand and its value in the marketplace.
·   Provide vendor-neutral marketing and other services to the Adoptium ecosystem.
·   Define compatibility, quality, and branding processes for enterprise-grade runtime technology.
·   Leverage licensing and intellectual property flows that encourage community participation, protect community members, and encourage broad usage.
·   Manage the overall technology roadmap and business strategies for Eclipse Adoptium and related projects.
·   Establish and drive a funding model that enables this working group and its community to operate on a sustainable basis.

The proposed charter [1] for this working group is available for review.   If you have any comments or feedback on the proposed charter, please send them to the working group mailing list [2].  All Members of the Eclipse Foundation are invited to join and participate in this working group. If you are interested, please send an email to the mailing list [2].  Based on the feedback and level of interest, the working group will be officially created early in the new year. 

Please feel free to contact me directly, or the mailing list, if you have any questions.
