In my talks on JDT I generally include a slide with the above image. I thought I should also write a post and include the following bits of (interesting) information about the committers.
- JDT committers are spread over 3 continents, 4 countries and 5 cities.
- More than half (6 out of 11) of active committers are based out of Bangalore, India.
- Dani and Olivier have been there since the very beginning of Eclipse, and Markus has been a JDT committer since 2003.
- Srikanth has been working on compilers and related technology forever.
- In all eight to nine languages can be spoken in the team. Even the commiters in Bangalore speak many different languages, for instance I can communicate in my mother tongue, Hindi, only with Ayush. Hence, we pretty much communicate in English :-)
- Unfortunately the team is dominated by men with Raksha being the only member of the fairer sex.
- Ayush at 24 is the youngest committer in the team and I come a close second at 25.
