Following on previous goodwill built between the Eclipse and Apache communities the two Open Source foundations have decided to partner for the first time on the OSSummit Asia 2007 conference. As announced to Apache committers via the committers mailing list:
“The Apache Software Foundation and Eclipse Foundation are joining together for the first time at OSSummit ASIA 2007
Combining 2 days of in-depth hands on trainings followed by a 3 day conference featuring over 60 presentations, Birds of a Feather gatherings to engage in throughout each day, interactive keynote panel, and Li Gong Chairman and CEO of Mozilla Online Ltd doing the featured keynote.”
This is a great step in acknowledging the growing ties between these two communities that now share interests, code, and committers.
