Re: [ee4j-community] Committers don't have to contribute code

You need to be a legal entity to be a member of the Eclipse Foundation.

A company is a legal entity. There are several membership levels for companies, I recommend that you use the contact information on the page that you referenced if you have further questions.

A committer, being a person, is also a legal entity and can join as a committer member.

P.S. I believe the accepted protocol when responding to a list digest is to trim away the content that is not relevant to the thread you're responding to.

Wayne,

The most important question is, whether "company" can only be corporate entities like Ltd., PLC, etc. or the non-for-profit organizations, standards bodies, universities, research institutes, media and publishing, government and other organization types as defined by the Eclipse Foundation board of directors (https://www.eclipse.org/membership/become_a_member/membershipTypes.php) also qualify if they join as Solutions Members for 5000$ per year?

I understand, a JUG that has no formal incorporation and membership registry could have a hard time regarding IP, but those that are registered non-for-profit organizations, could they show up there, too if their members commit code?
