[] Proposal to establish the Eclipse IDE Working Group


A proposal has been made to establish the Eclipse IDE Working Group.

The proposed charter [1] indicates the Eclipse IDE Working Group is being formed to ensure the continued sustainability, integrity, evolution and adoption of the Eclipse IDE suite of products and related technologies. In particular, it is being formed to provide governance, guidance, and funding for the communities that support the delivery of the Eclipse Foundation’s flagship “Eclipse IDE” products.

The working group will:

• Oversee development of the release plan;
• Provide governance, resources, and funding for those aspects of the development of the Eclipse IDE packages that are required for the simultaneous release, as well as for resources directly related to IDE packages, including Eclipse Marketplace;
• Set the criteria by which final products are “official” and define the rules by which these decisions are made;
• Provide the framework under which the production of all intermediate products required in the creation of the Eclipse IDE downloads is carried out;
• Act in coordination with EMO in administering the services hosted;
• Assist in the fostering of the growth and evolution of the ecosystem including, but not limited to, the Eclipse Marketplace.

The proposed charter is now available for review [1].   If you have any comments or feedback on this proposal, 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 later this month. 

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