I've been asked to clarify my nomination
for Chris Brealey and Craig Salter for Committer Emeritus status for the
benefit of those who are less familiar with their work in WTP. I
did not elaborate when I nominated them earlier today since I thought everyone
in WTP is already very familiar with the work Chris and Craig had done
over the years.
Chris was the component lead in the Web services component and Craig was
the component lead in the XML and XML Web services component since the
initial formation of WTP. They were instrumental in setting the direction
of WTP and guiding it through the various releases. They laid out
a lot of the ground work for their respective components and had been shaping
the direction of these components ever since. Over the years, they
contributed designs documents, implemented RFEs, provide fixes, and reviewed
patches from other team members. They had been very actively participating
in the WTP community in general until they had a change of job responsibility
a few months ago. For that reason, they had submitted their resignation
to the WTP PMC.
Following the process outlined recently
to maintain an up-to-date list of active committers, I requested to expire
their committer rights for the Web services subproject and to nominate
them for Committer Emeritus status in recognition to their previous contribution.
