Are you a new committer or project lead for an Eclipse, LocationTech, or PolarSys project? Are you thinking about proposing a new open source project? In this tutorial, Eclipse Foundation staff members will walk you through the information that you need to know to be an effective open source project committer. The discussion includes an overview of the Eclipse Development Process, the Intellectual Property Due Diligence Process, and the Tools and IT Infrastructure made available to open projects by the Eclipse Foundation.
We’ll be running the Eclipse Committer Bootcamp at EclipseCon 2015. We’ve scheduled it on Sunday, to avoid conflicting with the fantastic tutorials that are running on Monday. The fun starts at 3 pm (PST); we normally run for about three hours, and–having learned valuable lessons from the past–include plenty of breaks and time for questions. You don’t have to prepare anything; we’ll take care of that.
There will be prizes.
There is some additional information, along with the presentation materials from past offerings of the Bootcamp in the wiki.
If you plan to attend, please send a quick to to firstname.lastname@example.org to state your intent (so that we can have some sense for the number of committers we should expect).
