|[eclipse.org-planning-council] Exception for LinuxTools and Helios|
Thanks, Wayne Andrew Overholt wrote:
The Linux Tools project apologizes for missing the Helios M4 deadline. I was late starting our discussion on joining and was unclear on the deadline for joining I also started on a Helios-specific build too late. In creating the build, I ran into some issues with the JUnit4 updates in the Eclipse SDK. These factors combined to make us late joining. We would like to request that an exception be made to allow us to join the Helios release train. We believe that our project opens up an area of growth for the Eclipse community. Specifically, we believe that our target audiences of C/C++ developers -- specifically those on Linux -- and Linux distribution users are growth areas for Eclipse. Our success to date can be seen with very well-received demonstrations at Linux conferences and our growing, diverse committer and contributor base. Being a part of the Helios release train will give our project broad exposure and provide more evidence to Eclipse consumers that the ecosystem is flexible, dynamic, and growing in new areas. Thank you for your consideration, Andrew (on behalf of Linux Tools project) P.S. Sorry, the blame lies solely with me.
