Birthday Thank You

So one last (and somewhat belated) post related to the Eclipse 5th birthday celebrations.

As many of you may already know, over the past month or so we tracked down the 65 or so people who were the original founders of both the Eclipse Project and the Eclipse Consortium and gave each a small gift in recognition of their contributions. If you see someone sporting a black fleece vest with the Eclipse logo and “Founder”, then you can be sure that “they were there”.

A special thanks is owed to Mike Valenta and Bodgan Gheorghe who did the CVS spelunking required to create the list of original committers.

Eclipse has had a wonderful history of growth and community over the past five years. I am looking forward to being part of the next five.
