<note> this is a mass mailing to vote in 4 new committers to the Equinox
Incubator rather than spaming the world with individual messages and
replies </note>

We are lucky to have two new organizations showing up to participate
significantly in key parts of the Equinox effort.  First there is Prosyst,
a long time OSGi member and framework vendor.  They recently joined the
Eclipse Foundation and have contributed implementations of 4 OSGi services
that we were missing (there was a vote on accepting them some time ago).
The contributions, once they are through the IP process, will go into the
Equinox Incubator.  Pavlin Dobrev and Teodor Todorov from Prosyst have
agreed to drive the code to release form and graduation into the Equinox
Bundles component.  To facilitate this work, I propose making them
committers in the Equinox Incubator.

The other front is security.  The folks in IBM Lotus have long been
interested in security work and have agreed to contribute their support for
Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA) implementations from bundles and a
login framework based on Java Authenication and Authorization Service
(JAAS).  In particular, Matt Flaherty and Eric Li are the original authors
of these features and have agreed to drive them from incubation to
graduation/release in Equinox.  Further to that they have been contributing
to the bundle signature verification/validation effort and actively
investigating the applicability and use of Java 2 permissions to manage
bundle execution.  Again, to facilitate this work, I propose making them
committers in the Equinox Incubator.
