I am writing to nominate Kathy Chan
as a committer on the WTP project.
Kathy has been an active and invaluable
contributor to the design, development, testing and roll-out of most facets
of the Web services components for the WTP project and community. She wrote
and assembled the Web service tutorials and the comprehensive Web service
test plans available now on the Eclipse WTP Web site. She has been very
active via Bugzilla and the mailing lists, helping to keep the community
informed about the progress of Web services and to answer questions. She
has opened many defects and enhancements against Web services and other
components and has established a track record for rapidly furnishing quality
Kathy has designed and implemented many
of the features of the Web services tools, including the Apache Axis 1.1
extensions to the Web services platform. She has collaborated with the
leads and contributors of other key components that Web services depends
upon - such as J2EE, Server and XML tools - to help insure smooth integration
of the components.
With her in-depth knowledge of the Web
services standards and our Web services tools, I am confident Kathy would
be a valuable member of the committer team as we design and deliver many
exciting new features into the Web services platform.
Many thanks for your time,
Cheers - CB.
