The Planning Council discharges its responsibility via collaborative evaluation, prioritization, and compromise."

Planning Council Makeup

From the Bylaws, the Planning Council is comprised of:

  • One representative designated by each Project Management Committee
  • Strategic Consumer Members as a group are entitled to elect one representative
  • A Strategic Developer Member that is not leading a PMC, or Strategic Consumer Member that has eight or more full-time developers assigned to Eclipse projects, is entitled to designate one representative unless an employee, officer, director, or consultant of the Member has already been appointed to the Council.
  • Other individuals designated by the Executive Director:

The Planning Council is chaired by a person designated by the Executive Director. While not explicitly stated in the Bylaws, the Executive Director supports the idea of an annual rotating chair with each successor nominated by the Council members.

The current membership of the Planning Council is listed on the councils page of the main website.
