And, it is my honor to nominate Carl
Anderson to become the new Lead of that project, replacing myself. (I would
continue as a committer on the project).
Carl has taken over the main week-to-week
releng duties and is poised to guide the project as it goes through its
next generation of evolution.
Carl has been responsible for "patch
builds" for years, prior to recently taking over the main releng duties.
Besides his technical skills at release engineering, Carl has been involved
with WTP since forever, is Project Lead of the WTP Common Project, a committer
on many others, and is familiar with the committers on the remaining WTP
projects. And most of all ... for a Project Lead ... Carl is committed
to the Eclipse open source principles in both principle and practice.
I am sure every WTP committer would
agree with Chuck's merits and abilities to lead the Releng Project, but
there are only 5 committers of the project so, to the 4 besides myself,
please document your approval by replying to this note to wtp-dev list,
and join me in welcoming and thanking Carl for his contributions. (Well,
I guess Carl's reply would just be to agree he is willing ... and the other
3 can welcome and thank Carl :)
