Greetings Modeling PMC.

Jean Bezivin has asked me to retire him from his leadership positions
within Eclipse. I have removed Jean from the Modeling PMC and retired
him as PL for Open Model CourseWare (OMCW) [1] and GMT [2] projects.

I'll take this opportunity to thank Jean for his many contributions to
the Eclipse community. Thank you, Jean.
Indeed. It's been a pleasure working with him over all these years.

With Jean Bezivin's retirement, the two projects have no project leads. Can you please make it a priority to find suitable replacements? The first order of business for new project leads will be to retire Jean's committer status on the projects.

FWIW, OMCW appears dead, but I think that's because it's content is
entirely contained in the project website. There is no content in the
project's SVN repository. It seems like there is some valuable content
there, but I wonder if this is the right place for it? Does it, perhaps,
fit in the wiki? i.e. is it time to terminate/archive this project?
Yes, I think it's time to archive it.

FWIW, there have been no changes in the OMCW project's website for more than year; and only a handful (3 files) in the past two years.
It's also time to terminate GMT. I believe Epsilon is the only active project left in there and they've been asked to move to EMFT so we should take the necessary steps to make that happen.

Thanks,

Wayne
