Eclipse Committers Emeritus

When Committers who have made significant contributions to Eclipse become inactive and thus no longer Committers1, we want to make sure that we acknowledge their huge contributions to our (collective) success. We choose to make that acknowledgement by appointing them to Committer Emeritus status.

Our heartfelt thanks to each of these people and their significant contributions to the long term success of all of Eclipse.

A list of all former Committers can be found at Committers Alumni.

Project leads may nominate people to this page as part of the process of removing a committer in the Foundation's Portal. Simply go to the committer management pane for your project and remove the committer. In the process you can select to nominate them to Committer Emeritus status.

1 Being a Committer is a privilege that is earned by contributing actively, and showing discipline and good judgment. It is a responsibility that is not given or treated lightly. At the same time, we acknowledge that active participation in Eclipse Projects is not a lifetime commitment, and thus Committers may/will become inactive for a variety of reasons.
