Re: [eclipse.org-planning-council] Exception for Sequoyah for M4 Requirement

I am sending this note on behalf of the DSDP-PMC, since they are still in the process of picking a successor for Doug Gaff to represent them on the Planning Council.

Sequoyah [1] is a re-packaging and expansion [2] of the Project previously known as TmL [3].

TmL was in Galileo, but with all the transition and transformation into Sequoyah their builds were not ready for M4.

Eric Cloninger kept me informed of their status and outlook since December of last year, so this isn't as "last minute" as it might appear. Its been known for a while, plans in place, etc. and if anything, their lack of a representative these past few months is the reason for no earlier communication to the council (not, anything to do with the Project itself).

From a business perspective, there are several justifications for allowing this exception:

1) The charter change was to allow a unified place for mobile application development to occur, which is one of the growth areas for Eclipse

2) The project now contains the code behind Eclipse Pulsar (Eclipse Mobile Industry Working Group) that has an EPP Package.

As I have stated before, I would like to abstain from these Exception Votes, to make sure you, the Planning Council, are fully on board, take responsibility for the content of the Simultaneous Release, and avoid your tendency just to do as I say (ha ha). So, I'll be looking for 3 +1 votes to consider this "approved". Please indicate your approval, or not, by a response to this planning council list. Since a full one week delay would interfere with getting M5 done, I've told Eric he can take steps to get in the build, as long as he is willing to revert, if it turns out there are objections
or a lack of support.

Thank you,
