Subject: Welcome to the Eclipse Architecture Council!
thanks for joining the Eclipse Architecture Council. I'm looking forward to working with you!
In case you don't know already, the Architecture Council has a monthly phone meeting every 2nd Thursday of the month at 11am EST. More details are on the recent meeting notes. I'd appreciate if you could make the calls.
The Web representation of the Architecture Council has recently improved, so I hope that you find many questions that you might have answered there. Any ideas for improvement of the Wiki are helpful feedback for us. We even have a bug as "notepad" for tracking newcomer questions and improvement ideas for on-boarding people more easily: bug 250348 may be an interesting read for you, and of course you can also comment on that bug.
As your first task, could you please edit the AC Members Wiki page  by filling in your name, affiliation, and linking to a short Bio of yours. As AC members, we are potential mentors for new projects, and the idea of the bio is that new projects can understand what members might make particularly good mentors in the area of technology that they are in.
If you have any questions, you can also contact me personally at any time.
