I was under the impression that Anithra was the new maintainer and
development had been restarted.  I've seen posts from him on the
SystemTap mailing list and he's been active in getting this stuff into
Linux distributions.

That isn't sufficient?  It's a bit of a catch 22 if someone wants to
contribute code and work on it at eclipse.org but they can't be a
committer to do so.  Maybe we should have an incubator?  We're in
incubation ourselves ...

IMO:  contributing code.

Understood.
