Re: [tools-pmc] Committer Election for Alexander Kriegisch on Eclipse AJDT - AspectJ Development Tools Project has started

Hi Tools-pmc / or EMO as appropriate,

Alexander has been contributing a lot to AspectJ for the last while and the result is that AspectJ is looking in pretty good shape at the moment, having had their first release in many years this summer. AJDT on the other hand has not had a release for a while, and there are some critical bugs that prevent the existing releases from working with Eclipse IDE 2021-09 (See Bug 575897 Comment 2 for which Alexander has a fix available on his GH fork) 

On AJDT we have an unusual case here that Alexander has not done much on AJDT itself, so while this election is new I want to seek permission from the rest of the PMC to consider Alexander's contributions to AspectJ when considering his AJDT election. I see this as equivalent to the Eclipse PMC which IIUC allows committers on one project to be approved as a committer on a related project without the same level of requirements for commits. Is the Eclipse PMC policy published anywhere - can/should Tools PMC adopt a similar policy for interrelated projects?

Can I get a +1 from my fellow PMC/EMO members to approve the AJDT election assuming the committers approve it and that the AspectJ election is successful?

A committer election for Alexander Kriegisch on project Eclipse AJDT -
AspectJ Development Tools Project (tools.ajdt) was started by Andrew Clement
with this criteria:

Over many years Alexander has been doing an amazing job supporting AspectJ.
Staying completely on top of stack overflow related questions ( ) and raising high quality
bug reports (his comment history on AJDT goes back about 10 years). More
recently, he has actively been contributing to our projects, both AspectJ and
the Eclipse AJDT project. He has been the only person actively looking at
AJDT issues recently, and due to the complexity of how AJDT is implemented it
is quite fragile as the Eclipse platform itself is updated. Even though he
has no OSGi or eclipse plugin background he recognizes it is vital to keep
the tooling working and, importantly, with the new found frequency for Java
releases we need to drive AspectJ updates into AJDT on a more regular basis.

For these reasons I'd like to nominate him as a committer on Eclipse AJDT.
