Re: [osgi-wg] working group membership and tck questions

With regard to committer members of the OSGi Working Group, they must be members of the Eclipse Foundation and also sign the participation agreement for the OSGi Working Group. The latter is necessary for proper IP flow to the created specifications.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [osgi-wg] working group membership and tck questions

Two questions: 

1) In the osgi working group proposal, it says this about Committer Members

Committer members

Committer Members are individuals who through a process of meritocracy defined by the Eclipse Foundation Development Process are able to contribute and commit materials to the Eclipse Foundation projects included in the scope of this working group. Committers may be members by virtue of working for a member organization, or may choose to complete the membership process independently if they are not. For further explanation and details, see the Eclipse Foundation Committer Membership page.

For those committers that are not working for a member organization it says they 'may choose to complete the membership process independently'.  The next sentence link implies that the 'membership process' being referred to is the committer membership process.  Does that mean the only requirement for independent committer members to the working group is just regular committer membership? (i.e. signing membership agreement, etc)?   Or is there additional process and agreements for osgi working group membership for independent committers?

2) TCK access:   As I remember, the OSGi Alliance restricted access to the various TCKs by membership level.   How is TCK access going to work wrt the osgi wg?   Specifically...for projects that implement specifications (e.g. Equinox-framework, ECF-remote services admin, others)?
