I've not worked directly with Peter,
but have reviewed many of his bug fixes and patches, and they have always
been sound, solid fixes.
He deserves the right and responsibilities
of being a committer. (Not to mention we need _someone_ to sort through
the situation with so many internet
proxy preferences in Callisto :)

[wtp-dev] Nomination of Peter Moogk
to WTP committer
I am writing to nominate Peter Moogk as a committer on the WTP project.
Peter has been a dedicated and prolific contributor of the highest quality,
well designed enhancements and fixes to the Web services tools of the WTP
project since its inception. There are few aspects of the tools with which
Peter is not fluent or has not applied his considerable skill at OO design.
He designed, implemented, documented, tested and maintains the Environment
Command Framework which has been instrumental in enabling our core tool
scenarios to run in a variety of graphical and non-graphical contexts without
alteration. Thru collaboration with the J2EE team he has driven convergance
of the Web service and J2EE tools teams' wizard frameworks. He is responsible
for the internet proxy page, leads our effort to have our Web service tools
behave well in international locales, and continually seeks ways to improve
the usability and performance characteristics of the tools. Peter never
hesitates to share his technical advice and leadership, particularly in
Web services and Java OO design, with others.
There is no question in my mind that the WTP platform will benefit greatly
by granting Peter committer status so that he can directly help guide the
evolution of the Web services platform. A glance at the ~87 bugs and RFEs
Peter has contributed  is testimony to this.
