It’s February so that means its election time in the Eclipse community.
Each year, the committer community and the add-in provider community vote for their representatives on the Eclipse Board of Directors. The number of elected reps is calculated using a formula based on the number of strategic members. The formula is 1+(floor(# of strategic members) / 5)). For this year, this means we’re electing four committer reps and four add-in provider reps.
This year there is a great slate of candidates with some very interesting thoughts on how they can contribute to Eclipse by participating on the board.
I strongly encourage everyone within the Eclipse community to get involved in the election by posting questions and comments to the candidates on the eclipse.foundation newsgroup (news, http). Even if you can’t vote, I would love to see some lively threads discussed on the issues.
