Moving on

At the end of the week I will be leaving IBM / OTI. I have truly been honored to be part of the Eclipse Platform team and through this experience redefine the IDE, deliver RCP, shape up Java componentry and perform many other stunts. It has been 7 fantastic years.

As hard as it is to leave, I'm very excited about the opportunity to join Sonatype [1] because they have an exciting portfolio of products [2] and a commitment to open source (Maven, m2eclipse, ...). Therefore I will continue to be heavily involved in the Eclipse community and provide leadership for the p2 project. I look forward to being a part of the Eclipse team from a new perspective and have no doubt that I will run into other members of the Eclipse team in the future.

Wow! I wish you the best of luck for this new job, and now understand why you promoted Maven Tycho just a couple of hours ago ;-))

Best of luck Pascal. I'm sure the requirements that Sonatype have on p2 will lead to great enhancements (and interesting challenges for you).

Good luck! Sonatype must be really proud. Now Tycho and Nexus Pro are in the good hands and I am sure will be the leaders in commercial p2 support.
