This charter was developed in accordance with the Eclipse Development Process and will outline the mission, scope, organization, and development process for the Eclipse Technology Project. This document extends the Eclipse Standard Top-Level Charter 1.2, and includes the required content and overrides which follow. It is anticipated that as the standard charter is updated, this charter will incorporate the changes and make adjustments as seen fit by the PMC, and with approval from the EMO and board of directors.
The Technology Top-Level Project provides a space for open source projects to explore ideas and technology areas that are new to the Eclipse Foundation or do not otherwise fit within mission, scope, culture, or roadmap of other Top-Level projects. It further provides a space for working groups to explore their technology; a space to build critical mass for new top-level projects; and a space where projects can find a measure of independence that might not be afforded by other Top-Level Projects.
Any open source project that is accepted by the Eclipse Foundation is in scope for the Eclipse Technology Top-Level Project.
