Please respond to
"Eclipse Platform UI component developers list."        <platform-ui-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx>

[platform-ui-dev] Committer nomination: Tom Schindl

I would like to nominate Tom Schindl <tom.schindl@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> as a
committer for the JFace subset of Platform/UI, currently consisting of
these two projects:


Over the last months, Tom invested an incredible amount of time in JFace,
and has made JFace viewers more flexible and easier to use.  His biggest
contributions were:
- introducing the concept of columns (e.g. per-column label providers)
into the viewer framework
- making it easier to set up trees and tables with editable cells
- making the viewers independent of the concrete SWT widgets Table and
Tree, so that they can be used for custom trees and tables (e.g. the ones
from Nebula)
- support for keyboard-driven cell editing (tabbing between cells, using
the arrow keys to navigate between cells)
- roughly 30 snippets demonstrating how to use certain JFace features

Please respond to the mailing list with +1/0/-1 as usual.

Last month, I nominated Tom for Eclipse's top contributor award
If you haven't done so already, please consider voting for one of the
candidates here:
