Development Resources/FAQs/About Review Documentation

The documentation for a Review has traditionally been a slide deck however there is no reason to use slides: a short report/document would work equally well if not better (reports are information dense relative to slides, and that's a good attribute).

In any case, the docuware must be/have:

  • Neutral File Format. The docuware must be published in an operating-system neutral file format. PPT and DOC files are not considered neutral. HTML or PDF are currently the best choices. The EMO can convert Open Office and Microsoft Office to PDF if you are unable to do so.
  • Archival Quality. The docuware must be comprehensible and complete on its own without requiring explanation by a human presenter. Archival quality is required because the document will be available on the website in perpetuity; future Eclipse users, adopters, and even new project committers will consult it long after the review conference call has been completed.
  • Correct Copyright and License. The document is being written (and thus copyrighted) by you, not by the Eclipse Foundation, and thus the copyright statement needs to be by you (or your employer). Similarly, the content should be licenses under the EPL.
