RFP Now Open for Eclipse IDE Enhancements Funded by Friends of Eclipse Donations
The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to announce that we are initiating our request for proposals for new development projects targeted directly at enhancing and improving the Eclipse IDE/Platform. This is the first such request for proposals based on our new Friends-Enabled Eclipse IDE/Platform Enhancements Program, or FEEP.
The funding for these FEEP projects has come exclusively from donations made by individuals to Friends of Eclipse, and it is part of our commitment to use 100% of the funds raised through donations to enhance and improve the Eclipse IDE/Platform.
We are inviting proposals from the broader Eclipse community, and hope that many of our members and committers will participate.
The list of projects being funded is available at www.eclipse.org/development-efforts
The deadline for submitting proposals for this first cycle is Tuesday, November 10. We expect to award contracts to the winning bidders the week of November 16, with development expected to begin shortly thereafter. We are also committed to posting a list of the winning bidders, along with the contract value, at the end of the bid process.
Our thanks to everyone who has donated to the Friends of Eclipse, and hope that you will continue to support our ongoing process of improvement and enhancement.
