Re: [tools-pmc] Committer Election for Alexander Kriegisch on Eclipse AspectJ™ has started

Hey Jonah,

Thanks for following up on this. I assumed as I instigated the election I didn't have to vote, maybe that was a mistake on my part? Unfortunately, I am the only active committer on both projects and have been defacto AspectJ project lead for >10years - Adrian doesn't get involved any more. All the more reason that I needed Alexander :)

Hi folks,

I had been waiting for the election to come through for PMC approval, but I have just seen that they failed due to lack of response from the current committers to the vote. This applies to both the aspectj and adjt elections for Alexander.

The next step is to probably retire committers on the projects who aren't active anymore, and restart the election. Please reach out to the pmc ( if you would like advice/help on getting through this process.

I am not subscribed to the ajdt or aspectj mailing lists, so I have cc'ed Andrew and Alexander. I don't have an email address for Adrian Colyer, the aspectj project lead.

A committer election for Alexander Kriegisch on project Eclipse AspectJ™
(tools.aspectj) 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. More recently, and luckily for us, he has actively been
contributing directly to both AspectJ and the Eclipse AJDT project.

On AspectJ he has helped with some key tasks:
- reworking the AspectJ patches we apply to the JDT compiler to move to a
much more maintainable approach. This was a very large piece of work enabling
us to work with much cleaner git workflows rather than tedious diffing. The
result is which replaces
our old 'org.aspectj.shadows'. See all the pull requests from Alexander
related to this:
including vitally the most recent to quickly get us to Java17.
- Building on that he has been doing a lot of polishing of the main AspectJ
codebase: sorting out the maven configuration, and making it easy to consume
that new JDT patch. There are numerous PRs here all from Alexander over the
last few months:
including important fixes like getting the '--release' flag to work
- He is super active on the issue tracker (when it used to be on bugzilla and
now on GitHub issues), whether it is raising problems he's discovered in his
stack overflow work or commenting on issues raised by other folks.

What slows him down right now is me not processing his PRs fast enough. For
all these reasons (and many more) I'd like to nominate him as a committer on
