Eclipse committers create great technology, but it's no secret that some of them
neglect lack the resources to maintain a web presence that is compelling and exciting for everyone.
But you can help -- without doing much work!
In 12 minutes (or less!), I'll show you how to pull the right strings to get changes into a project's website. I'll show you how to get great graphics created with little effort on your part. Then I'll show you how you can become a committer for that project, for the sole purpose of helping with the website. But I won't show you how to create a patch. Promise.
