A Simple Thank You
Ganymede is just around the corner, and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to the many Eclipse committers, project leaders and contributors who have all participated in its success. You have done our community proud.
I was tempted to list some of those who have made particularly significant contributions, but I am certain I would miss too many deserving people. Please feel free to provide their names in comments. From releng to packaging to developers to CQ reviewers to bug triagers to movie poster competition organizers to Ganymatic kickers, there are a many individuals who have chipped in to helping make Ganymede a reality.
One interesting note: as most readers are well aware, I’m pretty much useless when it comes to shipping these releases. My personal contribution is primarily in support of the press and analyst activities in support of the release. As this was the third release train, Ian and I were pretty much convinced that the press interest in Ganymede would be lower than in past years. You know: same old same old. We were dead wrong. There is a ton of interest in Ganymede, and how the Eclipse community continues to predictably deliver value and innovation year after year.
So: congratulations and thank you!
