As most of you already know, I have been unemployed for some time
now. That interval is now coming to an end, to my great relief.
However, in my new employment, the job description does not include
time to spend on development of the Eclipse Modeling components on
which I am currently a committer. Nor would I expect it to, as the
work is quite removed from the MDD sphere.
I would not be able to contribute as a committer on these components
to the standard expected of the Eclipse community, and certainly not
my own standard, on my own personal time. Therefore, I shall need to
relinquish my committer rights on the MDT OCL component and the EMF
Query, Transaction, and Validation components as of next week.
The problem is, of course, that I am the only committer on these
components. As I understand the Eclipse process, a Project that finds
itself without any committers proceeds to Termination Review in the
hope that the project can be re-staffed. Is the same true of
Components? Can we assume that the rules of the new process (in which
these components that are still Components would be Projects) should
