In the past, Eclipse working group gathered like-minded people and companies to collaborate on sets of projects in a specific field of expertise - and that is a good thing.
In some cases, something more was required, not only the grouping of projects working in the same domain, but a more concerted effort to drive to a common vision of an integrated solution.
And thus came the idea of industry consortia being parts of these working group. And this is what led to the creation of the Papyrus Industry consortium (Papyrus IC).
This presentation will describe the why of the Papyrus IC, the how of its creation, the what of its structure and governance, and how it has involved and continues to evolve.
