|Re: [ide-dev] An "IDE Working Group"|
Ooh, I like that. I can see a number of companies that depend on the IDE lining up since our future with Eclipse really depends on that succeeding.

A working group might be how companies can participate that don’t want to provide developers/committers. We find a group of companies that are willing to spend $50K/each to fund some developers to work on JDT.
I thought about this as well. This working group could focus on marketing aspects (such as the /ide and /java pages) as well as coming up with a sustainable model for funding platform development.
Ian, can you get more details on how the process for creating such a working group looks like? Do we need to prepare/submit a paper? Are there minimum requirements for the number of participants, etc?
