|RE: [dtp-dev] DTP PMC: Stepping down and nominating Brian Payton|
Hey Fellow DTPers,
It's been a long ride, but time to step down. I've enjoyed my time on the PMC since DTP started in 2005 when we brought existing WTP RDB components into the fold of a new top level project. DTP is thriving quite well as we work with many of our competitors in a mutually beneficial space and in a responsible way. Quite enjoyable.
At the same time, I'd like to nominate Brian Payton of IBM to the DTP PMC. Brian has been actively involved with database related components in Eclipse since the very beginning. He currently co-leads the SQL Dev Tools subproject and is a committer on that subproject as well as the Model Base subproject. Brian contributed the SQL Query Builder code to the SQL Dev Tools subproject and has made many other contributions and fixes to that subproject as well as the Model Base subproject. He's also presented several talks and tutorials at past EclipseCon and EclipseWorld conferences.
