|Re: [ide-dev] IDE working group [WAS: Improving Eclipse JDT - Ecosystem]|
I also think Gunnar pointed out some important key points:Every committer has to earn his wings by contributing to the project in a meaningful way. Even a developer financed by a member of the WG still has to get acceptance of the team he is contributing to. I don't see any difference of a committer coming from, say, Redhat contributing to P2, Platform or JDT and a developer payed by a member of the WG.
Generally, we should not think of members of the potential IDEWG as sugar daddies. The WG is a mechanism build a platform for companies to give voice to their needs and pain points and finding people that have the resources to fix them.
