    Open Budgeting

    Tuesday, November 22, 2005 - 12:50 by Mike Milinkovich
    We’re currently going through the process of creating an Eclipse Foundation budget for next year. A major part of this process is deciding what programs we want to support. We would all like to get community feedback on the programs we’re currently thinking about. Better yet, I would love to...

    Eclipse and the GPL 3.0

    Thursday, November 3, 2005 - 11:17 by Mike Milinkovich
    Yesterday I was on a panel at the Open Source Business Conference with Eben Moglen , Diane Peters and Jim Harvie . The title of the session was “ GPL 3.0: Directions, Implications, Casualties “, but what it was really about was providing a venue for the Free Software Foundation...

    The Highest Compliment

    There comes a time in the life of every open source community when they know they’ve made it…that the work they are doing is fundamentally changing the industry and impacting how people look at the development landscape. So when is that moment? Is it when it hits 50 million downloads...

    We’ve had two new people start working at the Eclipse Foundation this week. First is Matt Ward, who in Denis’ words, has “…joined the ranks of co-webmaster/sysadmin/person_to_blame at the Foundation…. Matt comes to us with strong UNIX skills, a great attitude and an impressive beard.” I can definitely vouch for...

    EclipseWorld Wrap-up

    Thursday, September 1, 2005 - 17:13 by Mike Milinkovich
    Just back from EclipseWorld in New York. I think BZ Media did a great job putting together the first Eclipse-specific conference in North America other than EclipseCon. (In Europe, iX has been running for two years.) The program was interesting and the turnout exceeded their expectations. For me, a big...
