I've applied several of Valentin's patches,
they were always right on target.
Plus, maybe now he won't have to keep
asking me to assign bugzilla's to him. :)

[wtp-dev] Fw: Nomination of Valentin
Baciu as WTP committer - to the XML-JSPand Web Services component teams
I've been reminded of some recent PMC changes to the committer
nomination/voting process. Since this is our first experience using
'new' process let me explain how it works (as I understand it)...
Committers are now organized into groups called "Component Teams"
JEE, XML etc.) as described here . When a candidate committer
nominated it should be explicitly stated which Component Team they're being
nominated to. Members of the Component Teams cast votes to decide
candidate is admitted to the team. So although every committer/contributor
to WTP is welcome to provide feeback, the votes are counted up on a
Component Team basis.
So... having said all that. I'd like to clarify my Nomination of
as a WTP committer to the XML-JSP and Web Services component teams.

of Valentin Baciu as WTP
I'd like to nominate Valentin Baciu as a WTP committer. Valentin
the WTP effort approximately a year ago and immediately began making
significant contributions to the WSDL and XML Schema components. Valentin
has greatly impressed me with his mature approach to software development
and his high standards of code quality and testing. Never one to
for a quick fix or a stop gap hack, Valentin makes the extra effort to
analyse problems thoroughly which often leads to better solutions and
cleaner code. As well as fixing lots of bugs, he always takes the
contribute JUnit tests to validate each fix and ensure future regressions
Valentin has contributed to many areas of WTP and Eclipse over the last
year and has quickly become an expert on XML, Web Services and EMF. He
taken ownership of the WSDL model where he's made great improvements
the model's quality and robustness. He has revamped parts of the
Schema and WSDL Editors to implement hyperlink support and improve model
synchronization. In a joint effort with the with EMF team, Valentin
great work to track down bottlenecks in the XSD model and made very
significant performance improvements. He also worked with the JEE
enhance the validation framework to support multiple validator
As a committer to WTP I believe Valentin will be better positioned to have
a greater positive impact on WTP.
