The Eclipse Foundation Development Process (EDP) is the foundational goverance document for Eclipse projects and committers. It describes the manner in which we do open source software. The EDP does not prescribe any particular development methodology; it is more concerned with the larger-scale aspects of open source project lifecycle, including such things as reviews, processes for running votes and elections, bringing new committers onto a project, etc.
The Eclipse Foundation Specification Process (EFSP) extends the EDP to describe the process by which specifiations are created in open source.
The Eclipse Vhant project maintains the Eclipse Foundation Development Process, the Eclipse Foundation Specification Process, the Standard Top-Level Project Charter, and related resources.
