[equinox-dev] Incubator commit rights for Andrew Niefer

The 3.3 plan contains a work item related to improving the launching

As part of this effort, Andrew Niefer has been working on the new splash
screen prototype and JNI lauching support.  The new splash screen work
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=161569) also involves
changes and improvements to the EclipseStarter to provide a startup
monitor, of which the new splash will be one implementation.  The JNI
support (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=82518) involves
improving the communication between the Eclipse executable and the Main
class. (and calling back into the exe from Main)

He has provided several quality revisions of the prototype as well as
delivered important relevant information surrounding the performance
implications of such changes. We would like to put his work in the Equinox
incubator for the community to easily consume and comment.  Andrew will
continue to lead this investigation and I propose that he be given Equinox
incubator commit rights to help facilitate this.

Please respond to this list with your votes.
