Let's meet and talk about how as a community we could evolve this situation and provide Enterprise-class provisioning for Eclipse. Some areas to consider:
Timothy Webb works for Cisco Systems focused on Eclipse-based technology deployments across the company. He is the proposed lead for the Maya project proposal and currently leads a team in Cisco to build out an enablement and distribution platform for RCP-based tooling; with the goal to enable adoption of Eclipse-based technologies by engineers who may have no prior knowledge of the platform. Previous work with Eclipse includes leading creation of a test automation platform which integrates a testing IDE coupled with automated distribution of testing services via remote OSGi containers. With over eight years working at Cisco, he has filled many roles including architecting a massively scalable broadband provisioning system and for the past four years leading innovation which utilizes the Eclipse platform and a plethora of associated technologies.
Peter Manahan works for IBM Rational and is the architect and manager of the install team for IBM Rational Desktop products. He has worked on installation/service strategies with Eclipse based products such as Websphere Application Developer and Rational Software Architect since Eclipse 1.0. Assisted with the design and implementation of Rational Product Updater and its follow-on the IBM Installation Manager which is used to install and manage the eclipse based Rational Desktop product set.
Sharanya Doddapaneni is a Software Engineer at Cisco Systems, Inc. She is currently working on a Eclipse-based software management and distribution framework for enterprises. The framework offers a profile based solution to enable tool stacks for engineers. She works as part of a very energetic group to develop and broaden workflow solutions.
