Dear Tools PMC,
I was looking over the PDT 1.0 Graduation Review slides and slide 18
caught by eye: "17 committers from 2 organizations (Zend and IBM)".
And yet looking at the commit explorer for the PDT project, I see that
all the code has come from Zend-employed committers and none from the
Three of the 17 committers are from IBM, but:
Thus my question for the PDT Leadership and the Tools PMC is:
- bburns has never committed any code, ever, to any Eclipse project
- pberkland has been active in Webtools, but not in PDT or in any
- rgoodman has been active in Webtools, but not in PDT or in any
Thanks for helping me understand,
- Given that the Eclipse Development Process says:
"a thriving, diverse and active community of developers is the key
component of any Eclipse Project"
"Reasonable diversity in its committer population as appropriate for
the type of Review. Diversity status must be provided not only as
number of people/companies, but also in terms of effort provided by
"The purpose of the Graduation Review is to confirm that the Project
is/has: ... active and sufficiently diverse communities: adopters,
developers, and users"
- Given all that, how does "all the committers come from one
company" qualify as "sufficiently diverse"?
