Recently I was reviewing the Equinox
project, the direction and the community around it. One of the things
that stood out for me is that Tom Watson has been quietly leading vast
swaths of the activity in Equinox from the framework and service implementations
to the OSGi spec work and areas in between. Not only does Tom produce
great code and designs but he has a great sense of the community and repeatedly
performs heroic feats to meet their needs.
It is with great pleasure that the Eclipse
PMC invited Tom to co-lead the Equinox project and he accepted. Congratulations
Tom and thanks for all the great work!
