The EAC is responsible for the long-term technical health of the Eclipse platforms and frameworks. It involves itself in inter- and intra-project architecture and open source process through discussion during its meetings, mentoring and consultation. The AC is involved in both technical and process aspects because the social and process structure of a project has been shown to have a direct impact on the technical quality of its extensible frameworks and exemplary tools. See also [http://runnerwhocodes.blogspot.com/2008/01/introducing-eclipse-architecture.html Darin Swanson's Blog] about the EAC. This role for the Architecture Council represents a new (revitalized?) role for the Architecture Council and thus there is not a lot of history to build on. The Council will be as effective and useful as we make it.

Mission

The Eclipse Architecture Council (EAC) serves the Community by identifying and tackling any issues that hinder its continued technological success and innovation, widespread adoption and future growth. This involves technical architecture as well as open source process and social aspects. Comprised of the finest technical leaders from all the Community, it is our goal to keep the projects successful and healthy, the processes simple and smooth, communities vibrant and working together - because this will benefit all of us. Approach us asking for personal Mentorship for your project, bringing up issues, suggesting improvements or just asking questions.
